linux firefox css issues

Just noticed is broken in firefox on linux… why?

Another challenge for another day: this is why.

So, based on what fonts are available, it seems like the character
widths of the fonts chosen when you specify ‘font-family:
Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 10px’ differ between
platforms. The design is based around the assumption that those
character widths will be the same across platforms. This is not a safe
assumption, since different platforms tend to have different fonts
available and their font systems may even treat the same fonts slightly

Probably the best solution to this problem is to specify the width of
the input using CSS (e.g., ‘width: 100%’) rather than using the size

I wonder if the dropdown menu I’m using can even support this change… ahhhhhnother challenge for another day… live and learn 🙂
