    Site Not Expanding With Browser

    Hello.
    So I posted this yesterday, and thought I figured it out. Can anyone tell me what is happening here? If you shrink the browser to a couple hundred pixels wide, and then scroll right you will see what is happening.

    I can't seem to figure this out.

    Your purple background is set to width:100%, which makes sense if your site is supposed to be whatever size the browser is. But pretty much everything else seems to have a width of 980px. So when your browser is 500px, the purple box is 500px, but everything else is still 980px. You could set a min-width of 980px on #header-back so it doesn't shrink past that.

    That makes sense. Now if I just got rid of #header-back I could do the same with #header-content and just place the min-width there or would that not work the same?

    Actually, I placed the min-width on the #header-wrap, not sure if that's what you meant, and it seemed to fix it. I ended up getting rid of #header-back. Thanks for the advice!

    Thanks the min-width worked like a charm after I messed around with some other CSS. It was only happening in Firefox, but it's fixed thanks! And I would do a responsive design if the client was willing to pay for it!
