[SOLVED] Sidebars not the same width in common browsers

Building a new site I started with WP 3.0, added but DID NOT activate several plugins. Today I updated (following JuggleDad's instructions) to Atahualpa 3.5.1. The sidebars are set to 200px wide and look correct in Internet Explorer, but not in Firefox (my fave), Chrome and Opera. The site is at http://pyramidstables.com/wp/.
I'm not understanding what''s causing this. Help would be much appreciated in the best way ;-).

TIA!

Did you apply all the bug fixes? What is in CSS Inserts?

Thanks for your response, Larry

CSS INSERTS are in attached .txt file


Bug Fixes applied:
351-05: Page Title Does Not Display.... (bfa_meta_tags.php),
351-04: Fix sub-menu padding (bfa_hor_pages.php),

I did not do:
351-03: Comment Form Anchor Link...
351-01: EXCERPTS - Show first X posts... (this will not be a blog ... no comments, no posts on home page),
351-02: Header images not showing in sorted order (using only one header image),

Did I miss any bugfixes that I need using WP/Atahualpa as a CMS?

I'm kind of at a loss on this. Could you try something though. Set the width to a static 900px or something like that and see if the sidebars behave. If they do try setting the site to a flex width again to see what happens.

Also, if that doesn't work and since you don't have a lot built, you could try hitting the delete bfa_ata4 in Export/Import settings. Before you do make sure and export the settings file which you do from Export/Import setting as well. You may lose all your styling after hitting the button but you can just import the setting again.

Hmmmm....
Resetting to fixed width had no effect. I left it there (900px) for now.
Exported settings, deleted bfa_ata4, reloaded in a new browser window...all settings were definitely gone.
Imported settings...still not better.
I'm brain-dead for tonight... will try any new ideas in the morning.

Thanks and g'nite!

I will continue to ponder this. Please post if you find the fix.

One of two things,
1) you added a '}' in ato->Style & configure LAYOUT->Layout Container Style or
2) you may have edited your CSS.PHP at some point in time.

Looking thru your css I see the following
HTML Code:
div#container {
padding:3px;
background:#E8E1D1;
box-shadow:0 0 15px #333;
-moz-box-shadow:0 0 15px #333;

}

width:auto;
margin-left:auto;
margin-right:auto;
text-align:left;
display:block
}

table#layout {
font-size:100%;
width:100%;
table-layout:fixed
}
the middle set of rules has no CSS selector and is causing IE to react differently than the other browsers.

Upload a fresh copy of css.php and check it again

Bingo!
JuggleDad said "1) you added a '}' in ato->Style & configure LAYOUT->Layout Container Style or" and that was the problem. Removed the } and instantly fixed it!
Thanks so much! On my way to donate...you guys are wonderful!
