Support Case Month: April 2013
My new main nav bar works in IE but it goes off the page in Firefox?
The site is live now. I never had a problem with it fitting. I did add one ore menu item, but I played around and it fit fine. I never had your program give me this kind of error, it always seem to work across all browsers.
What do you think it could be?
Please let me know.

I checked your page in various browsers and I see that this happens in most browsers, even in older versions of IE.
The reason your menu fits in IE9+ is that IE has a special font rendering engine that makes fonts a bit smaller in width.
The solution is to make your menu smaller (e.g. by removing 1-2 pixels from the empty space between each item pair) and then set the minimum width to 940px in order to make sure that it has the same size in all browsers.
