    Safari 4 Final seems to have a bug where it pushes centered content to the bottom of a page. Just an example:

    View in Safari 4 and previous versions or Firefox. Content should remain centered when you make your window larger or smaller.

    Again, displays fine in Safari 4 Beta, Safari 3 and Firefox -- not Safari final.

    Same Misalignment

    I'm using a graphite iMac G3 700 MHz with Mac OS X 10.4.11 with all updates up to the date of this posting. Same problem. I have tried changing monitor resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768. Still not centering. Also, I can't scroll to the top of the bookmarks list! Very bizarre.

    I could be wrong but was that site designed using tables? I don't know if that would have any effect, but maybe it would have some when it comes to alignment?

    I don't see any difference when I open that website in either Safari 4.0.1 or Firefox 3.5.

    But I do agree that it displays some pages' content a bit messy at times - pics covering parts of text (or vice versa) and stuff like that...

    Im the original poster.

    Here is a screengrab. Safari 4.0.1 on the left. Firefox 3.0.1 on the right:

    Browser windows were aligned

    Now, I just installed the Firefox 3.5 update. Same results. Firefox displays the page "correctly" -- centering the content. Now, if you are on a laptop display, the difference might not be as noticeable between Safari and Firefox. But on my cinema display, where my browser windows can be opened big, I see the difference
