Starting just this morning, I'm noticing that some of the outlines that are normally present are not complete and some of the lines between the lists of threads and forums are missing. Not a big deal, but it IS different and I noticed. Here are a few screen shots:

Thumb of 2016-05-31/woofie/e8c1be
Thumb of 2016-05-31/woofie/6e4403
Thumb of 2016-05-31/woofie/bedde9

and one more that I spotted when I returned to the home page just now:

Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Doesn't happen in Chrome, though. But I don't like Chrome.

So is that Firefox you're using? Or IE?

I notice that happens when you decrease the browser font in FireFox. Try hitting the "CTRL" and the "+" to see if that fixes the problem.

I agree It doesn't happen in chrome, but does in FF. I've had NGA set at 90% zoom.

Yes, Firefox. I haven't made any adjustments to the font in ages and when I do, I always reset it; this only started yesterday. However, you're right. Increasing the font makes it go away. No biggie. Just wondering if it possibly had to do with tinkering with other problems.

On many websites, when I see wonky things like that, I increase or decrease tyhe zoom by small amounts "until I get lucky".

My theory is that, with so many different display devices and OSes and browsers, and WIDE range of screen size and resolution, there is always SOME combination that looks bad, because (probably) not every browser follows the same rules for screen display.

"Make it look good on EVERY display, including those you don't have and can't test"
is like:
"Define the Universe and give three examples."

Somewhere between very difficult and impossible.
