Problems with layout in small width screens


Seems to be, there is a layout error when Askbot loaded in browser window with small width: So thats a normal layout
Normal layout in r >~960 px - View in full scale

And thats a problem
Layout glitch in r <~960 px - View in full scale

Worst of all, that layout don't fix when we go to bigger screen/windows size. Checked on Chrome 9, Chrome 19, Chromium 17, Firefox 14

Is there a way to fix that?

I can't reproduce this. When I resize my browser (on this site, Askbot 0.7.39) at the top I see the "Home" tab tight up against the left, which is a bit less than ideal aesthetically speaking but not as bad as what you see. I'm using Firefox 11 and Chromium 18.

Can it be platform-specific bug? I reproduced it again in Opera 11.62, Chromium 18 and Firefox 14 under Ubuntu 12.04 b2

Strange, because I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 (64bit). Are you reproducing the bug on this site or on the latest version from git?

On both versions.

I really appreciate your help, but can you be little more specific? I already set up #bg { min-width: 1072px; }, but for me fixed width can't be a constant solution.

The file to change is actually style.less not style.css the less file is the original source. However the real solution is to create a responsive design. Current design is made for fixed width.
