My website is formatted with CSS. With Firefox 51.0.1, my website has lost some of its vertical white-space. My CSS values for vertical white-space are set in "ex."

Earlier versions of Firefox displayed more vertical white-space than Internet Explorer 9. However, Firefox 51.0.1 renders pages with the same amount of vertical white-space as Internet Explorer 9.

Is this a bug, or is it a feature? Is this about a change in the way that vertical margins between block elements are collapsed?

Your site looks fine to me ... but I have nothing to compare it to. I also tested in the latest Firefox ESR and it looked the same as in here...

So, you may have to either detail out the diff (before/after) ... or see if you can post a screen-shot of before and after... or at least post a screen-shot of what you are seeing now.

See: Posting_a_screenshot_on_the_forum.

Looks good to me also. I'm on Vista Ultimate, Win32, Firefox ESR 52.2.1 32 bit. Your menus are nicely centered.

On this page:
All the "Top of page" take you to here rather than the top-of-page:
