Text on certain websites positions itself incorrectly

Just the way the webpage is coded, and it's not quite compatible with Firefox' rendering engine. Nothing you can do about it except view the page in another browser (IE will usually be fine).

It might be down to different versions of Firefox, or changes that had been made to the webpage between when your Dad looked at it and when you did. This one in particular looks like dynamic (constantly changing) content to me.

Window Positions
Windows 7 is re-using window positions. Like when I open a folder, move and resize it, and then close it. The next folder I open is the same size and postion as the one I just closed. Or, when I open several folders, they all open next to the first open folder. Confirmed this on my other pc too....
