help with firefox issue

P: n/a
Hi all,

(Apologies for any cross-postings)

I am having an issue with a navigation bar in firefox. At seemingly
random times, the nav bar will not appear in 1 line (as it should),
but will span 2 or more lines.

For example:
How the nav bar should look:
http://www.bostonhistory.org/img/menu/menu_OK.jpg
and how it sometimes appears:
http://www.bostonhistory.org/img/menu/menu_error.jpg

I cannot reproduce this error on demand. If you click around the nav
bar a bit on the actual site (http://www.bostonhistory.org/), you will
probably be able to reproduce the error, but it seems to be randomly
that it happens. We haven't seen this error at all in IE.

The CSS to display the nav bar is here:
http://www.bostonhistory.org/css/nav.css

And the html is here:
http://www.bostonhistory.org/inc/nav_code.phpp

I'm not really sure where the problem lies with this. I've tried a
few things with no luck. Anyone have any ideas? Anyone seen an issue
like this before? (not the browser-compatibility issue, I know we've
all seen _plenty_ of those :)

thanks in advance,
jon

Thanks for the suggestions BTS, I will look into them.

Another thing I forgot to mention:
If you do get the nav bar to appear on multiple lines, clicking
"reload" will fix the issue. Weird.

Cross-posting is ok, if necessary. Multi-posting is not.
Not to mention the fatuity of "for *any* crosspostings"!

Either he doesn't know what newsgroups he posted to, or he's
following the lead of airlines that cancel your flight and then
"apologize for any inconvenience", as though canceling your flight
could possibly *not* be an inconvenience.
