NoSquint

Great but occassional problems Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've used NoSquint for ages and it is generally fine but unfortunately it affects certain sites. e.g. in http://www.robertdyas.co.uk/ the search box is obscured.

NoSquint

There is a tiny restriction v 2.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this add-on for years. It is one of the very best. But I've just found a tiny disadvantage. I noticed it with a website with a Search facility containing a drop-down list. The list just wouldn't drop down and the 'Go' button didn't work.It was OK with IE so I blamed the website for incompatibility and contacted them. They were very helpful and said they'd tested with Firefox. Eventually I tracked the problem down to NoSquint. I had it set to start at 120% with 5% increments. Settings ending in 5 were OK, those ending in 0 weren't. After a good deal of experimenting I've discovered that a base of 100% with 6% increments is fine up to 130% then OK again up to 148%. These setting seems to give me the widest range of uninterrupted options.So if anyone has what seems to be a webpage problem, just try resetting NoSquint to 100%. This certainly doesn't deter me from NoSquint in any way, but I just thought it worth mentioning..I've contacted the author with my findings.
