    Default Why do the WhiteBlaze web pages no longer fit horizontally in a browser window?

    Is it just me, or are the web pages now too wide for the browser window, requiring horizontal scrolling to read it? Makes it cumbersome to read, indeed.

    Everything still works fine for me on Internet Explorer 9. My guess is that you have magnified the screen image, or Zoom, somehow.

    If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, hold the control key on your keyboard and scroll down a little bit. It should adjust the sizing of the page. Scroll down until it fits for you. You can scroll back up to make it fit.

    Other than that, it's hard to really know what's up. There could be a multitude of things going on.

    I'm finding the same issue as well, on both Firefox and IE.

    It's not a size problem, it's a text wrapping problem... the same size worked fine yesterday. Not a big deal though... just making the observation.
    Don't take anything I say seriously... I certainly don't.

    I'm using Chrome, and I haven't noticed any changes in the layout or text handling. I don't use IE unless I absolutely have to, and I don't use FF frequently enough to be able to notice any differences for it.

    You can always try doing a cache-clear reload, see if that changes anything. Hold Control, press F5. Should fetch you a new fresh page from the server.

    Ah, the line "You can scroll back up to make it fit" should read "You can scroll back up to make it larger". So if it's too small (but not small enough to read this, hopefully), then follow that and you can make it bigger again.

    It has been doing the same with me as well. It seems like the advertisement at the top right is what's causing it to go all crazy - I could be wrong but yeah. Did the CTRL + scroll to make it smaller.

    I changed a few things yesterday. I will go back and reset it shortly. I thought what I changed would fix the issues for the people having the search box sitting over the top of there tab buttons. It appears the users that are using screen resolutions below 1020 are the ones having the issue, it will have to remain that way. As I said I will reset it shortly.

    Many thanks. I was hoping I could get your attention without resorting to profanity, discussions of stealth camping, or home distilling instructions.

    A quick question for those now having trouble. Before I rest this back, what is your screen resolution set to (only for those having trouble)?

    OK, I have another question here. Viewing some posts everything fits fine horizontally.
