    Firefox 19.0.2 won't wrap text in resized window

    Firefox 19.0.2 won't wrap text in resized window.
    Is there a command to force it to wrap text?

    Hmmm... no such problem here with 19.0.2. Have a look at a page of mine that has a flexible layout:

    http://www.andrews-corner.org/slrn-windows.html

    This should resize and rewrap ok?
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    yep, your page is nice, so it must be something in the layout of the page I'm looking at.

    HTML and css for that page is an absolute mess, but fixed width given in px can be seen all over the layout and this is the problem that you have encountered. Rather than try to work out the convoluted html and css grab a copy of the web developer toolbar and see the needless complexity of the page.

    Hmmm, thanks but I'm not terribly computer literate in terms of developer tools. I just want to be able to wrap it, on a live webpage. Is there a quick soln?

    Well, it does not look pretty but Firefox has the native ability to view a page with no css at all. This is in View --> Page Style --> No Style. This is a test of the basic HTML of a page, have a look at my own page without styles and you will note that it is still usable, the Chinese page less so but at least the text is a little unwrapped. The web developer toolbar has the ability to selectively block css sheets which is a little fun. The real answer is for people to write their HTML properly .

    Thanks again. I turned off styles. But it meant my perapera app didn't work, so I created a temporary page for the text I'm translating.

    So you have a work-around that works for you? Just think if the page was set correctly this would not be necessary
