I love the layout of the MonoBook skin, but something's
amiss with the style (in the sense of stylesheets).  In
the attached image (created with Netscape 7 on Unix),
you should see my problem:  The boxes for forms are too

More specifically:
* In "Recent changes and stub display", the text in the
boxes is cut off at the bottom.  (This effect varies a
great deal -- sometimes better than these particular
examples, sometimes worse.)
* In "Misc settings", the checks in the checkboxes are
very small, thus hard to read.  (This effect is

These problems don't appear with the Standard skin --
but that skin isn't laid out nearly as nicely.  What
can I do to get the great page layout of MonoBook with
form boxes that I can easily read?

This is a known bug in older mozilla versions, fixed a year ago or so.

Using Mozialla Firefox 1.0, I have the same problem with the navigation boxes.
I could fix it by changing the padding of the main.css file.
Perhaps it helps to change the padding of these boxes, too.

.pBody {                                                                        
    font-size: 95%;                                                             
    background: White;                                                          
    border-collapse: collapse;                                                  
    border: 1px solid #aaaaaa;                                                  
    /* old: padding 0 0.8em 0.3em 0.5em; */                                    
    padding: 0.1em 0.8em 0.3em 0.5em;

What is the problem? Can you describe it or post a screenshot please?
Comment 5 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-07-05 20:18:59 UTC
We can not fix this bug cause we do not have enough informations.

Please attach a screenshot showing the problem before
reopening this bug.

If anybody wants to follow the link above, they should go to instead.  (I do not know if this
screenshot would still occur in Netscpe 7 for Unix, much less any current
browser, but it did use to occur, as described above.)
