I know you're working with the font, and maybe this is a related issue. And it happens on IE but not Firefox. And, it happened when I enlarged the font, as per Trish's suggestion.

The three boxes (forums,articles and blogs) at the top of pages have only the first box filled in. When I mouse oer it, all three categories seem to be jammed into the first box.

And then there's the page numbers.

I hope you get the font fixed soon. Things are just not right.

I am even having trouble highlighting a sentence to delete or copy it.

Thanks for this, and the screenshots are SUPER helpful - thank you!

Next time you see this, could you do a "Shift-Refresh" and see if that resolves the issue?

Sure, but, um, which key is refresh? I don't have one that says Refresh on it.

Or if you mean up by the browser, I tried that already.

Refresh / Reload. I'm not sure what it's called in IE. It is a button that lives up near the top of your browser that reloads the page.

If you hold the shift key while pressing it, it forces the browser to completely refresh the page (along with the style-sheets).

Well, I clearly have some work to do to make this site work right in IE.

Thanks. Smiling In the meantime, may I suggest Firefox? It's a fantastic browser that works flawlessly. There are 17 good reasons not to use MSIE.

I do use it. They are both open all the time on this computer. Want to know why?

I have 2 yahoo accounts, and both are used regularly. If I keep both IE and FF open, I can be logged in to both yahoo accounts at the same time. No signing out and signing in. Rolling my eyes.

I have Chrome and Firefox both installed for that very same kind of purpose.

Maybe I'll try Chrome again. I did once, but things kept running slow, for some reason. I uninstalled Chrome and had no problem. Coincidence? I don't know. I guess your advice makes it worth another try. Thanks!

See if F5 is your refresh key. It works for me. there's also a curved arrow symbol on the toolbar that refreshes.

I just tried it. F5 alone, Shift F5, and Control F5. None of them changed the screen.

But for the record, I think I'm already used to this smaller font on IE. I can live with it.
