    My website looks fine on Safari but not in Firefox, Chrome and IE 8,9. Here's the link

    Appreciate help how to fix this. Thanks!

    FYI, I'm working on a child theme.

    They look the same to me in IE9 and FF except for a slight difference in the navigation type. That is because for font family you have Helvetica Nue and serif - two different types of fonts. If you want Helvetica Nue and something that looks like it, it should be san serif.

    Thanks kmessinger for the quick response.

    I have changed all the working font to Arial. I am using Adobe BrowserLab to check how the page look like in the other browsers. Apparently after changing the font, it's still the same problem. The right sidebar is still below.

    I'm surprise that it looks okay for you on IE9 and FF. Appreciate if you could look into it again.

    You also said there is a slight difference in the navigation, is the black background? Because I can see that too.

    Yes, it looked the same but I did not scroll down and see the real problem. Check style.css, #secondary and adjust the width. It is too wide.

    Do your webpages with the issues validate? If not, the first step to browser compatibility is validation.

    Kmessinger, I set it wide because of the ad banner is 300px. But I have resolved the problem. Set the page and width content accordingly. Looks alright now.
