That's interesting. I am using the same FF version (3.0.4) on F10, albeit
32 bit and no matter what I do, I cannot get the page to display
correctly. I have either disabled or uninstalled all add-ins to no
effect.

It's also not clear to me that any other preference settings are
relevant.

It renders fine on my wife's iMac in FF 3 and in Safari, which seems
typical of other comments that I have seen in other fora regarding
rendering on Linux specifically.

Go figure.

Marc
