zBench - Windows 7 IE causing sidebar to display under main column (10 posts)

    I am creating a blog using the zBench theme, my WordPress version is up to date.

    I am developing this blog on a Windows XP Pro machine, and have tested it in IE, Firefox, and Chrome, all on different resolutions.

    I had a colleague look at the blog for feedback, and on his Windows 7 Pro machine in IE, the sidebar displayed underneath the main content column. The Facebook and RSS Feed icons remained in place.

    His machine was a laptop, running a widescreen resolution, I'm not sure the exact screen resolution.

    When I use a resolution that is "too small" the site displays properly, other than the gray background behind the nav menu getting cut off, displaying a white background in the top right corner of the nav / header area.

    I am wondering if this problem occurred from a screen resolution being too wide, is that at all possible?

    If that is not possible, I am thinking it may be because I relocated the search bar, removing it from the nav menu, and placing it directly above the sidebar.

    I use a pretty high Res, and your site looks fine to me?

    thanks Furcifer, this bug has me puzzled. Never seen a layout that displays correctly in Firefox IE & Chrome on all resolutions on my computer, and then breaks in IE on a widescreen laptop running a *higher* resolution. Go figure!

    Your site looks fine to me also on a 1920x1200 24'' but I'm having the same problem with posts on my website on IE & Chrome (http://teste.miguelcoelho.com/destaque/teste-2/)but working great on firefox.

    Yes Miguel, your problem is the same as mine, in a way. My site shows up fine on my computer in Chrome, while your site on my computer in Chrome displays the sidebar below the main content. This is the same problem I am having, except my problem only shows up (thus far) on Windows 7 Pro IE. Weird!

    Perhaps you need some conditional comment CSS?

    esmi, I was thinking that as well, but until I can identify what the real problem is, I cannot program any conditional CSS to correct it. :)

    Thank you esmi, but I don't know how to do it.
    Do I have to create a new stylesheet for each browser?

    @robertwhitis: Start by validating the existing markup & CSS. The most common cause for cross-browser display issues is invalid markup/CSS.

    @miguel coelho: Please see the link I posted above.

    I'm having the same problem too. Running on Firefox, when I reduce my font size, the sidebar will be shifted down. Damn Weird.
