Just visited toofatlardies website

I run Firefox on my home Linux machine and my Vista laptop, their front page does not render properly at all:

Anyone else have these problems

Hmm, me too.

Same here, had to switch to the IE rendering tab add-on to get it viewing properly.

It used to work right, must have been since the update for the Sharpe news?

Yep, works fine Windows XP + IE, doesn't work very well with Mozilla on either Windows XP or Linux.

It's fine using Safari on a PowerMac.

Knackered in Firfox on XP, but works with the IE-Tab extension link

Works fine in Internet Exploder.

The code for the page is, to be honest, atrocious – a mixture of tables to control layout, and cascading stylesheets to control elements wrapping the tables.

FireFox is alot more standards compliant than IE – IE's bugginess is actually helping the web page render in an acceptable way here
