View Full Version : Tearing hair out with a PC vs Mac Chrome issue

08-10-2012, 07:41 PM
Hi there .. I do hope someone can help me (please)

After twiddling about with some very complex css inherited with a Jooma implementation I finally managed to get the layout working on Firefox, Chrome and IE ... however only the PC as I have no access to a Mac.

Today I find out the layout on a Mac Chrome is vastly different to that of a PC. Grrr. see the home page of fabulous-women.co.uk

I was rather hoping someone would have an insight into how to solve this.

All help greatly appreciated.

Usually the operating system doesn’t have any influence on the rendering of a browser of the same type and same version (those days were over when Internet Explorer for Mac died), and it looks no different for me in Safari, Chrome (which are both powered by the same rendering engine), or Firefox. Only if JavaScript is disabled the navigation drops down a bit.

thanks - much appreciate that.

On my PC the site is fine across all browsers. A few minor discrepancies - but generally acceptable.

Yesterday - a friend sent me a screen shot that looks like the content box margins have added a 30px space so while the background bits are in the right place the entire content moves right by aprox 30px.

Thanks for the reassurance. Do you know any free services where I can double check against the various browsers just to make sure? (although would have no idea how to resolve - it's been 6 years since I did anything in css)
