Anyone else here have a problem with Firefox and the code tag? I've viewed code tags with Firefox on multiple computers, so it may be a Firefox problem.
This text looks very small in Firefox

Sometimes if I refresh the page a lot it'll return to normal.

Here's the source via Firefox of a code tag:
<font size="-1"><table width="100%"><tr><td><font size=2><pre><code><font size=2>Wed Mar  2 15:29:16 PST 2005

I have the exact same problem. I also have weird issues where I go to the main forum page, and lines are spaced close together, and if I refresh, it goes away.

It's probably a bug in Firefox. I've just been waiting for a new version to come out. :)

Yeah speaking of a new version, 1.0.1 just came out. (I just told me to update 5min ago)

I started this topic:
http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=228998

Try to keep it bumped or something? I dunno.

I wonder if it's the <font size = -1> in the beginning.

I'll go update now. :) (Wheeeee)

Yeah new update didn't fix it. Maybe they don't know about it.

Yes, the new update claims to address stability and security. Chances are the bug is a result of the combination of tags that Nick uses, which for some reason Firefox isn't happy with. Still, they look fine to me... *shrug*

Does firefox get fickle about other page's font size not being in quotes? The <font size=2> 'should' be <font size="2">

Or is it the code tag itself?

I imagine however, Nick uses sizes without quotes other places without problems.

Yeah, code tags are small for me as well. Using Firefox 1.0.1 but I always thought it was intentional. I'm not sure that Firefox is so picky about the font tag format that it would just ignore the missing quotes. I've seen it properly render some stuff an HTML validator writes books of errors for.

Well, the funny thing is that it's small, but then if you refresh the page, it grows again... sometimes I find that as I read a post, it's small, but as I reply to it, the code tags are suddenly larger again. Very strange...

Then it's definately a bug in firefox. Regardless of what 'should' be displayed, it should be displayed consistantly. Might try submitting it to bugzilla if you can't find it in there.

I submitted a bug, since I don't know the exact cause.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=284792

I sort of rushed through the submittion, so add any comments if you wish that would help to figure out the problem.

Bug was responded to:
Quote:
Both <pre> and <code> cause the use of monospace fonts. The default monospace
font in FF is 3 or 4 sizes smaller than for proportional. To these smaller fonts
is applied <font size=2> which makes them smaller still.

Go into your options for fonts and either make the size bigger, and/or choose a
font family for monospace that renders larger, such as Bitstream Vera Sans Mono
(a free download font).

Then why does it display differently at different times?
