Seems fine here on v3749, if that helps...

...and still seems identically functional in v3785, though I'm not familiar with the site and don't know what behaviour to expect. Layout looks fine, all links seem to work.

That's odd, as it's still muddled here with 3785. It never used to look like that!

Here's a screenshot from me under RISC OS 5.22; I see you're using 5.23. Could it be an OS version thing?

The fault does not appear here on a Titanium, OS 5.23 (19-Nov-16) with NetSurf 3.7 #3785.

However the fault does appear on OS4.42, OS4.39 and OS4.02 with the same version of NetSurf, see uploaded file bapfish_djp.jpg. An earlier NetSurf, #3723, was OK on OS4.39 and OS4.02.

Yes, bapfish_djp.jpg is exactly what I see

Further digging shows the fault to be present on the Iyonix with both OS5.22 13-Apr-15 and OS5.23 26-Nov-16 but not on a Raspberry Pi Mk3 OS5.23 12-Nov-16.

Thanks. That works, but how?

Here on a BBxM with RO 5.23 (25-Aug-16), the layout is OK in 3762 but not in 3763.

Should be fixed in #3789.
