Home Forums CSS Float breaking Organic Tabs?

    Using Chris’s Organic Tabs, I seem to have found that floating something inside of the tab breaks the fluidity of the tabs. When the float is there, the tabs work, but they are jerky, and the page jumps to the top if I am scrolled to the bottom. When I use FireBug to take the float out, the tabs work as they should, nice and smooth and the page position is preserved.

    Here’s my code. I’ve narrowed down which float is causing the problem and commented it in the CSS, just not sure why. Anyone have any experience with floating inside the tabs?

    Here’s the dev site where you can see the tabs with the float:



      • Introductory Sailing

        The Introductory Sailing class is focused on students ages 8~10. Class size is limited to 4 so that we can place two sailors and
        one instructor in each boat to maintain a safe and fun learning environment. Our focus is to spark an interest in sailing in young
        kids. They are encouraged to repeat this course over the course of the summer.

      • Beginner Youth

        Our Beginner/Intermediate Youth course is focused on providing kids with a fun opportunity to learn and hone basic sailing skills.
        Norton Pond offers warm waters, gentle breezes, and minimal boat traffic in which to safely practice sailing. All students are issued a
        U.S. Sailing textbook from which we instruct in all the topics necessary to sail with confidence. It?s not unheard of for our students
        to be sailing solo by the end of the course! This is a full day class and students should come prepared with lunch, clothing, etc. to be
        out of the house for six hours. Ages 10 and up.

      • Advanced Sailing

        For those young adults who have already got the rudimentary skills down pat and want to progress in sailing we will offer a one week
        Advanced course at the end of the summer. The intent of this course is to expose students to sailing opportunities outside of Norton
        Pond. We plan to race on the pond, sail with other clubs in the ocean, get some keelboat experience, and possibly participate in some
        of the local competitions held in the mid-coast harbors. Youth who have successfully completed a Beginner/Intermediate course are
