Please see my website: http://www.swiatwasylewskich.pl It's in Blog Mode, Feature Post Excerpt Mode is "Left Justified" and in Chrome it looks perfectly! But please compare in Firefox and IE. Where is the error?

Different browsers handle images in unique ways. I believe the problem comes from your posts and the images you're including in them. It would appear you're not setting the size of images to dimensions smaller than the width of your content area. Because Chrome is more tolerant, it's shrinking the images for you, but IE and FF are allowing the larger images to appear, even though they bleed into the sidebar. The solution: Look at the set width of your content area, deduct the size of your thumbnail, plus 15px for either side of the elements. That would be an additional 60px for the main body plus thumbnail. The resulting sum is the maximum size you can apply to your images. So, if you have a 800px wide content area and 150px thumbnails, your math should be 800-150-60=590px and if you resize your images to that width, they will show correctly on each browser. To resize your images, in each post, click on the images in the Visual Editor. Then, you should see an option to Edit the image. On the right at the top next to the picture you should see "Scale Image". That allows you to enter 590 (or whatever number the math comes to) and save. The image will be scaled for you. Save your post too. Then, if someone clicks on your image, they will see a new tab with the full size image displayed.

You are right. Chrome shrinks the images. Thank you!
