Post Overflow

I was cleaning up one of my questions here and noticed that Stack Overflow's comments were overflowing into the right column in Chrome. The question is, what's the difference in CSS handling between Chrome and Firefox. I don't have access to Safari, Opera, et al. Can someone tell me in which browsers the error manifests? Is it just me?

Here's the layout error: alt text http://scorebored.net/temp/stackOVerflowerror.png (my apologies to Tim Down for covering up his name with my comment bubble)

Since I have no natural skill for good layouts and the whole process makes me sad, I wonder if someone can diagnose the error on StackOverflow and make a recommendation on how to avoid it. Is this a consequence of embedding a div inside a td?

  • that's a curious problem indeed. i have a similarly long answer stackoverflow.com/questions/2948749/… here but im not getting the same error as you did. (and yeah i can reproduce your bug in chrome) – corroded Jun 2 '10 at 5:02

    Looks like the problem is related to that long URL: Firefox is breaking it on a "/" whereas Chrome doesn't want to break it. – Dean Harding Jun 2 '10 at 5:07
  • oh yeah didn't see that one. yup it's the long url then. – corroded Jun 2 '10 at 5:13
