Is anyone else having consistent problems with Firefox rendering the the positions of the text boxes and graphics differently than IE?

It is consistent now and a real problem - I get boxes overlaid others top to bottom - the fonts also look different in Firefox.

I have the "check and fix browser zoom" box checked.

I use Win 7 and the latest version and updates of IE, Firefox and Chrome

Whats up? anyone know and any fixes to this?

Thanks!

found the solution - in Firefox it is the option under tools> advanced> UNCHECK "use hardware acceleration" option - when I unchecked this the problems went away!

I've seen this for some time - IE uses some advanced OS / Browser features to make the fonts look better and the others in general render slightly different in appearance

I've also seen where a client does not have the standard web friendly font(s) installed on the computer OR they have the ZOOM accidently set to a higher or lower value OR they have a forced font in their settings that overides the site CSS but none of the above are caused by DHE ...
