I notice this issue under Mac OS X 10.3.5, Firefox 0.10.1 (aka Firefox 
1.0PR... confusing numbering scheme!). I tested with Mozilla 1.8a4, and 
notice the same behavior. I don't have to refresh--resizing the window 
is enough to 'fix' the problem. In addition, the content area is moved 
down below the leftNav column of links.

You can see for yourself how it looks on Firefox[1] and Mozilla[2].

Of course, there's also the annoying problem with the rounded PNG 
corners (not to mention the background color for the Forrest logo) 
being a slightly different blue than the background-color of the 
.header as seen in my Safari screenshot[3]. I understand this problem 
also affects all flavors of M$IE.

I didn't notice this.

I would agree that these are not 'showstoppers' :-) and may just be 
quirkiness in the browsers... Which leads me to question if this could 
be some sort of quirks mode problem?
