    When I go from front page of USA Today online (the Life section) to read a story, the next page in Firefox displays with everything way over to the right: this didn't always happen in Firefox so I wonder: is it the browser, or is there perhaps a setting in Firefox that I need to adjust?

    Thanks for any ideas, on this. SG1 (Pat)

    In case someone has accidentely hit the right keyboard combination(my cat did it once)....I would adjust\decrease the text size setting in Firefox either by the menu selection as seen in the below pic or by using the Ctrl -(minus key) keyboard combination.

    Mrkvonic;

    Go to http://www.usatoday.com/life/front.htm and then just start clicking on links for varied stories: in my case the next page > may < appear OK in Firefox, but then again, the story may be > way over < to the right side of the page.

    Bubba;

    Had thought of adjusting text size, but it seems to not make a diff., and it's generally just their site that this happens at; however, I've come across rather garbled text displays on other sites IF using Firefox, but Opera and IE show things just fine. Hard to say, I guess, but I think almost all web sites are tailored to display in the MS browser.

    Thanks, SG1 (Pat)
