Is anyone else using firefox 1.5 RC1?

If so are you having any problems with this site. I get a link in the top left corner (http://www.linuxformat.co.uk/wiki) which pushes every thing of the right hand side of the screen. Also the spacing in the Forum is wrong. I have to scroll right (again) to see what has been writen.

I know this isn't LXF fault as it works in 1.0.7 and the dreaded IE, but I'm just wondering if it is my setup or is it 1.5rc1? Confused

Thanks

Hi,

I've just tried it with FF 1.5 RC 1, and can't see any issues with LXF and its sub-sites. Are you referring to the cycling advert in the top-left which sometimes links to the Wiki? Also, on the forum (1024x768 resolution) I don't get any side-scrolling either. Weird though, as we're both using the same browser release...

Could you maybe post a screenshot showing the problem, or email it to me (mike.saunders@futurenet.co.uk) please?

Cheers,
M

It has been solved. It seemed to be something with my set up, as when I uninstalled it and removed all my settings, then reinstalled it it all worked fine.

I'm still having this problem, only on this site.
ATM, I'm running WinXP and FF 1.5.
Here is a screenshot.

Do you have some sort of image/advert blocker enabled? It looks like the rotating box ad in the top-left corner is being replaced with a text link, thereby making the left pane huge...

When Adblock is disabled, the wiki logo shows up.
But in my Adblock I can see no reference to Linux Format or http://www.linuxformat.co.uk/wiki/ or wiki-ad.gif

How strange... All I can think is that Adblock considers the image dimensions and assumes it's an advert straight away -- or maybe it sees that the image link URL includes the word 'banner' and blocks it on that basis...
