On our website at ... phy-award/ in Firefox the column widths are not correct. All working fine in IE, Chrome and Safari and on ipad etc. I have checked on Firefox 36 on PC and on 37 beta on a mac

Any ideas why? This is a Wordpress site.

I put the link in the W3C validator
100 Errors, 61 warning(s)
The Validator has the ability to clean-up the markup and show where each error is.
Give it a try to see if changing the errors and warnings help.
Too lengthy or I'd list them, use verbose output and let it go sequentially.

The table has multiple <colgroup> tags. Try deleting all but the first.
