    It's looks fine in Google Chrome Version 40.0.2214.115 m, but I can reproduce in Firefox 35.0.1 and 36.0 .

The alignment issue of the Markdown Editing Help icon in the Firefox browser is fixed.

I have verified the alignment issue in Firefox 49.0.1.

The recent screenshot in Firefox for your reference:

Icon placed correctly

When click on the icon the help menu too aligned correctly. Previously it too cause the issue. Reference

When click on the Icon

It's been more than a year since this was posted, but The bug is still here

I'm running Firefox version 45.0.2, and I also see the formatting issue

  • I was able to repro in Firefox 45.0.2 like you, but was unable to repro in Chrome.

It seems like when using Firefox (I'm using v36), the HTML of the list element containing the help icon looks like this

<li ... style="right: 0px; left: 639px;" id="wmd-help-button" ...>

Now, there is no left: 639px; when I use Chrome 41 and IE 11. Removing left: 639px; seems to fix this placement issue.
