FIX FOR FIREFOX: did you set your border width to 1px

If you have firefox, first try ctrl+0 - if that does not work try ctrl + - (i.e. ctrl and then the 'minus sign' or the 'dash') - this will zoom out your browser. For me, if I reset with ctrl+0, and then zoom out twice with ctrl plus '-', this exercise will move forward. It seems that on my laptop ctrl+0 resets to like 125% zoom, so you have to zoom out from there to get to 100%. Using the touchpad isn't accurate enough. Use ctrl plus '-' once and press submit - if that doesn't work, keep trying ctrl plus '-' until you get to the right size.

Or alternately, try ctrl + + (i.e. control plus the '+' sign) to zoom in after you reset with ctrl+0. Or you can use Internet Explorer for this exercise - there you can see the percentages if you use the Tools menu (or the View menu, depending on version). The point is to get the browser to 100% zoom. In Firefox on my laptop, ctrl+0 will reset the zoom, but NOT to 100%. You have to fiddle with it from there to get it right. And the most accurate way is to use ctrl + 'minus sign' to decrease, and ctrl+ 'plus sign' to increase.

For me, I have to use ctrl + 'minus sign' twice to get it right.

I zoomed out until the test was almost gone, but it did help.
