OK tried flushing cache but didn't help. It seems the problem is with Firefox, IE 8 is ok. I've attached a comparison between Firefox 3.6 on Win7, IE8 on Win 7 and Firefox 4.0 on XP SP3. Actually I will also attach a screen shot of this message in the editor so that you can see how something a bit more substantial looks too (it's firefox 3.6.16 on win 7). I'm running 1280 X 1024 resolution, so it might not look as bad on something lower like 1024 X 768.

Nice work on the flags too Jason! I always thought it would be nice if it told you what they were if you moused over, didn't know you could do as Godfrey had suggested, I often wonder which countries flags are displayed

Tony.

Ok well I think I found a solution (though I certainly didn't need it before). The default font in firefox is Times new Roman. I just changed it to corbel and it doesn't look to bad at all (hadn't tried this font before). I'll have to find something else for my XP laptop

Also the other thing you will notice is the difference in background colour with firefox compared to ie8, I'm pretty sure they were the same before, but I actually don't mind the Black on grey, it is what I set my terminal emulators backgrounds to by default.

So it looks like firefox isn't picking up the font directive and falling back to whatever the default font is set to in the firefox content options.

Tony.

Another round of optimizations, javascript combination and minification, and we're sitting at a Google Pagespeed ranking of 96/100 and the number of page objects downloaded radically reduced (in fact, Pingdom would say we're down from 50 to 1 on most pages). There may (almost certainly) be some collateral damage, so if you find any more bugs let me know. I'll address the issues posted above ASAP - thanks guys.

They're working for me - how are you adding them?

Are you talking about smiley faces in the post, or the icon for the thread itself?

If you type colon, then capital D does it appear as ?

Do you have the "Disable smilies" option ticked?

Hi Tony. Interesting, I'm running 3.6.16 on Windows 7 and the edit box is styled just fine. Anyone else having this issue?
