Text is being cut off on websites.

Posted

I just noticed this problem and so far it's only happening with my school's website. I assume this is because of the latest update. See this link: http://catalog.uab.edu/undergraduate/collegeofartsciences/psychology/#courseinventory The text becomes cut off at PY 390. (The last class that should be displayed is PY 499.) This happens on every single page that lists each major's courses (Here's another example: http://catalog.uab.edu/undergraduate/collegeofartsciences/justicesciences/#courseinventory). Only the tabs that display courses are affected, so I assume this probably has to do with page length?

From what I can tell this is a text issue with Firefox - when I zoom out, I can see that all the text is still there, but Firefox is cutting it off for some reason (tested this in Chrome and it's true - I can see everything fine in it). But obviously that's not practical and would likely cause eye issues.
