Please check how this website behaves in Firefox 3

Since going to Firefox 3 I have found a problem with this site which doesn’t happen in Firefox 2 or IE7.
When I open the site the font and page width are larger than normal but when my cursor passes over a WordPress Preview it reduces to the page width and the font size to the same as with the other browsers.
This picture shows the comparison with IE7 at the top and Firefox 3 below - does anyone else see the same effect.
Whoops sorry - here is the URL http://wattsupwiththat.wordpress.com/

You might want to reduce the size of the page though - FF says it contains:-

I think it was Samuria, but some one recently had a similar problem.  It was the Font that Firefox was using on his installation as against IE 7

Re: Please check how this website behaves in Firefox 3

Further checking seems to point the finger at the full page zoom feature in Firefox 3 - if I change it to zoom text only it goes away
Edit - I have now tied it down to the fact that Firefox remembers the page zoom you used on last viewing the site but when hovering over the popup it goes back to default.
Deliberately setting the zoom level to default for the site fixes it.
p.s. axisofevil - it isn't my site - Most of the technical/statistical discussions are well over my head.

Re: Please check how this website behaves in Firefox 3

Just an update - following my sorting of the above problem and finding that Firefox 3 allows page resize and remembers it for that page.
Now the Usergroup forum home page fits nicely on my screen so I don't need to scroll down to see if there are any new posts
