    Hi there,

    I have done a search but was unable to find someone else with a similar problem.

    The radeditor on the Telerik demo page is not laid out correctly at the top, the backgound seems to be repeated. (Example)

    If you then open the Image Manager and select a directory, the icons for the different image types all seem to be shown so it spaces out the files a great deal. (Example)

    This only seems to happen in FireFox (version 2 and 3rc1) and is fine in IE7. It has been doing this for ages and I hoped the service pack would fix it but it is still happening. I have not tried this on my own site (we are still using the non ajax versions) just the demo page.

    What's causing it?

    Hi Andy Clarke,

    We are aware of this problem. It appears when the Minimum Font Size setting in Firefox is not set to None.

    In order to fix the problem please go to:
    Tools -> Options -> Fonts&Colors -> Advanced -> Set the "Minimum Font Size" to None .

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    I had the same issue, and resetting the minimum font size fixed it.

    But is there any chance this will be fixed without asking a client to change it's settings (though I'm aware of the pain cross-browser issues cause you)?

    Also, do you have any idea about the impact of this issue, as I'm not sure why I _do_ have a minimum font size set, while a colleague doesn't?

    Hi Igor,

    The rounded corners of RadEditor consist of table cells that are empty. In order to prevent improper rendering of these cells we have added a  . When the default font size of the Firefox is changes the size of the &nbps; is changed as well which leads to the observed appearance problem.

    Unfortunately, this behavior cannot be controlled by CSS, i.e. 1px is 1px no matter what the default font size of the browser is. Another example - if you use the zoom function of Firefox and IE the size of the elements will change, however there size in pixels will remain the same.

    The toolbar problem is very rarely reported because the Minimum Font Size setting in Firefox is not popular.
