  • You’re right. Its is crowded up there in MSIE and a big space in Firefox. Check your CSS for the search form to see if there is anything in there that might be a clue.

    I know that Firefox has problems with float divs inside of non-floating divs…but I’m not sure if this relates as your search form isn’t a float. Have you put a border around the different areas, like the column, search container, calendar…etc., all different colors (red, green, yellow – messes things up but helps you find the parent/child relationship in the containers) and see if there is another container that is getting in the way.

    I’d also check to see what the stuff is about the way Firefox handles padding and margins.

    You can blame the form, but the colored box around it looks fine. I think it is the way the form’s container might have some extra padding or margin that Firefox interprets as more than should be there, or there is something about the bottom margin or padding of the li that the search sits in.

    Try removing the search from the li and see how that works for you.

    Hit and miss, but I hope one of these things helps or leads someone else to have an answer.

    Thanks for the info. i will check out and do more testing. .


    I think your real problem is that the search function actually comes after your calendar in the html markup. A slight peek at your css shows that you are using a lot of TOP for positioning? Why? I think this may be causing your search bar to be slipping above your calendar. Try eliminating TOP and use margin instead. Like Lorelle said, take out search first and see if that is the problem.
