Oh yeah, I remember this one. Happens on the most recent versions of Firefox on other GNU/Linux distros, too - but not on Windows. I always thought that was pretty strange considering it's the same rendering engine on both OSes.

One workaround for this is to reduce the font size temporarily in "Preferences -> Content -> Fonts & Colors". 10 or 11 points usually works.

Ah, I just encountered the same bug on Firefox on Android. The workaround can't be used there, since the font size setting isn't available (there's some sort of text scaling setting instead). The bug also affects Chrome on Android, as well as my phone's built-in browser (named "Internet").

A fix for this will probably be done on a rainy/bored day. Lots of other stuff to do ATM. Thx!

I made the form font size and fields smaller, but have no idea if it will resolve the issue. Can you check it out and post screenshots if it's still busted? Thanks!

Thanks! I know why it's doing this. It isn't loading the correct primary font for the site. I will add some code to force it to use a font from CSS instead of relying on the client.

Aha, yeah - Firefox's Inspector tool tells me that the font is set to "Trebuchet MS",sans-serif. That would explain why the bug is specifically non-Windows; it's a Microsoft font. :) Oddly, though, that font is used all over the site, but only those three tables are bugged ... I guess the fallback font is too big for those tables only?

This has been done. It should now try to load the font from the web server via CSS (if your browser supports this). It will also try to load other similar fonts first, before defaulting to sans-serif.
