Another bug: this post breaks the Metatalk front page in FireFox. I think the link is too long and unbroken, and so the rest of the post is forced below the ad box.

Works fine in Firefox for me.

thats going to depend on your text size. mine is small enough that i'm not being affected, but i've seen it before. the long URLS are preserved by the browser and this can force the entire text below the sidebar if it doesn't have room to render them without breaking them somewhere.

you can also see this happen if your browser isn't maximized. shrink your browser window to the point the URLS won't fit in the window and watch them pop out of sight! it's not actually a metafilter bug, i've broken the layout of my blog with long URLS too.
