How does this blog look?

I recently looked at MCR using the Firefox browser and I noticed that my borders were pretty tight. How many of you use Firefox and how many use Explorer? Why would the page come up different in each? Anyone else experience that?

If you know how, I'd like anyone to "capture" a picture of my blog and email it to me. I'd like to see what you see. Thanks.

I always use Explorer at home and it looks great. Sometimes though, I have visited blogs on Firefox and I noticed my blog is a lot different then. But, I since I only use Explorer now, I can say your blog looks great.

I use Firefox at work, and Internet Explorer at home. On Firefox, there is a larger gap between the column on the left and your blogs, so it pushes both the blog and the navigation column to the edges.

How do you blog? (Sorry, I'm a blog newbie.) Do you use a program such as Dreamweaver or Front Page, or do you code directly into HTML? If you are using an interface program such as those mentioned, you click the command, and the program creates the code. There may be a discrepancy in how the code is read, or the code created may be based on relative position rather than absolute position, or... Well, you get the picture.

While the borders are tight, as you say, on Firefox, the posts are legible and the links are active, and everything is accessible, so I'd say - don't worry! Honestly, I don't come to your blog to see the graphics layout anyway.

As others said, it's scrunched on the left. But the code is different between IE and Firefox. It's irritating as a designer, but not terribly hard to fix.

It is able to be read, and doesn't look bad and I use Firefox exclusively.

Thanks everyone. That's what I thought. I use w.bloggar to compose the template and posts, and use Google's Blogger.com to host the blog.

If anyone's got a "quick fix" html for this, I'd like to know....

I'm new to html, learning as I go along, but am a quick learn.

add a padding-left:20px; into the sidebar on your code. Should help.

I wanted to help out, so I got on a computer today with FireFox. And, yes, the left sidebar is scrunched.

Just put in the code recommended by Crystal and everything should be great.

Thanks Crystal and MB. I'll work on it this evening.
