Marty, it works fine on Chrome, and that's what I normally test on.
I see the problem in Firefox, but I don't have the answer. Maybe somebody who is more expert in CSS/HTML, and knows more about differences between Chrome and Firefox rendering, could help here.
In the meantime, till somebody finds a solution, you could just remove the
tags, around line 1630 in the news_block_top.html, as they don't make much difference.
The templates should be redone, as they are still using "table" tags instead of "div". We need some HTML/CSS experts to help us...
