I've tried everything I can think of to fix this. One page of my site views badly in Firefox. One of the divs is pushing everything down about 40 pixels. I don't know what css file handles it. Since this is the portfolio page, I'd rather not have to go back to the Photoshop file and I don't understand why it is only affecting one page and only in Firefox. This is the page: www.galeerwin.com/portfolio.php

The problem is the #logowordsbutton div.

I'd appreciate any help and also weather or not it is advisable to tweak the CSS rather than go through redeployment.

Thank you

This may or maynot answer your question but usually when I have an issue with things getting pushed around, rather than trying to understand it I just place a panel around the issue and it is usually solved. This does require going back to PS unfortunately.

Hope this helps.

I believe the problem is coming from the fact that SG can't "see" the logo in the upper left as an actual element. It's part of the browser-background graphic, which means that the logowords-button layer is not going to have any way to position itself correctly in relation to that logo graphic.

Fortunately, I played around with the CSS a bit and it seems like you can make one minor edit to fix this.

Open the file "erwin_common.css" and find the entry for that object (should start at line 285). Change position:absolute; to position: relative;

Seems to fix it for me when I test it with Firebug.

Eric, you are a lifesaver! Thank you. And thank you for reminding me to try things out with Firebug. I was able to troubleshoot a few minor issues that way.
