Almost sprained my wrist moving the mouse

around to read this ''wrap'' I just posted here.

Post was typed within the normal reply box. No copy/past from something else like notepad, etc..
Running off the right margin (wrap)used to not happen. It seemed to occur here with the long URL being posted.

BOTH IE and Firefox. In IE it reads normally, in Firefox it stretches the page like you are talking about John. In Firefox, the URL is all in one line, in IE it wraps around and the page shows correctly. I have no suggestions for fixing it but I'm just confirming what you have said.

Still getting a ''wrap'' requiring

side by side horizontal movement of scroll bar when a long URL is used in a post.

It is really predominate using Firefox. Using IE, the movement of the scroll bar is only required once slightly, when a long URL is in a post. Using Opera, scrolling is not required.

There are many other posts for examples, but here are a couple of examples using Firefox version 1.0.6 when it contains a long URL:
