When posting, hitting enter causes the item to post, rather than being captured by the text box. I'm using Firefox 1.5.0.3.

I've verified that this is only an issue with Firefox, not with IE.

I suspect this might make it a lower priority, so I'm posting to point out why it makes it even more important.

One objective of this site is to attract open source folks who are not currently "aligned" with Microsoft. The fact is, most such folks use FireFox these days. Having a site that doesn't bother to work with that browser presents an obvious opportunity for cynicism.

IMO, it would also be of value for your designers to browse the whole site using FireFox. The layout seems much cleaner in IE, although that's just subjective opinion.

We test with FireFox and with IE. This bug was mentioned on a different forum post a couple of days ago. The fix for this will be in the next deployed version of CodePlex.

Could you be more specific about FireFox issues. I regularly test the site with both browsers and have not seen a lot of differences.

Well, I said it was subjective. :-)

I just went through the site using both browsers, in parallel. I realized that it amounted to nothing more than the font size, which seems to come up much smaller in FireFox. I increased the font from the View menu and it looked almost identical but when I set it back to "Normal" it was pretty tiny.

Usually this is due to percentage sizes in nested block elements. If blocks have 80% font size, the result is 64% in FireFox and 80% in IE, if I remember correctly.

Neither the earlier post nor mine yesterday had been responded to, so I wanted to make sure. Is there a way to know when something has been accepted to be dealt with?
