After more than a year of fighting with the display and presentation at SE and several other sites, I've tossed in the MSIE towel and migrated for Firefox. IS it perfect? No, but close enough for me. At least I can now see SE's slides - AND their captions on an over-sized screen and without having to scroll with every pic. Text is much easier to read as well. Some websites are built for MSIE and some, like SE just are not. What took me so long? Even those MSIE sites look/read better. Perhaps SE's tech folks ought to mention this more often. Regards to all.
