[Solved] WordPress layout not working in Firefox

  • # October 14, 2009 at 11:15 am

    Hey All,

    I’m trying to make a site about bars & pubs and i’m having a little trouble with my layout.

    I’m using a wordpress template i found online and i’m trying to customisize it to meet my needs. The page i am having trouble with the layout uses a plugin called "TDO Mini Forms" to turn a form into a post.

    All looks fine in IE but in firefox the first few form elements and up being pushed way out to the right.

    the site is http://www.thebeerfairy.com

    if anybody would be able to point the in the right direction that would be great.

    Thanks, Nick

    Try adding this to the stylesheet

    Code:
    fieldset{
    clear:both;
    }

    Don’t mean to nitpick but

    Quote:
    Select an city

    "Select any city" or "Select a city" but please not "Select an city"
