Whatever font you are using now looks fine for me in Mozilla
and Galeon on Linux.

I see the same issue. Comparing it with current Forrest website the
left-hand panel is now narrower. Great, that gives more screen space
for the main content. So one would expect to fit more on the screen
and not need to vertical scroll as much.  However, less content now
fits on the screen.

There is another obscure issue. When the front page is first
displayed (Mozilla and Galeon on Linux) then the search box
is positioned too far towards the top of the page, sitting
across the border of the light-blue and the medium-blue.
After "Reload" it is then positioned correctly.

Great work Marshall. This will make a lot of people happy.
