Is your Mac up-to-date?
Older browsers do not support flexbox.

Also note that valid names of objects and files are very important. Invalid names may work on Windows but not on other platforms, because there are stricter rules on other platforms.

Tip: if you run into a problem then reduce the page with a minimal number of objects to see if that works. Then re-add objects one by one until you have found the problem.

Hello Pablo,

I followed and applied your Naming advice on a page as test, then i switched to Macbook and opened that page live and the flexes are all still messed up.

I sent you the link of my site page to your email, hopefully you can take a look and let me know what is wrong?

Thanks!

The thing is, everything look messy, the Margins (spaces), the menu, everything.

I have visited the web page on my mac but do not see any issues. it looks exactly the same for me as in Windows.
Maybe there is an issue with your browser?
For example, maybe you have installed an ad blocker which modifies the HTML code in the browser?

Note:
the code you have added to the end of the page is not correct. There should not be any code outside the <html> tags. This is 'fatal' error.

Thanks for checking Pablo,

The html i added at the end of the page, is statcounter.com code, it must be at the end of the page in order to show statistic of visitors. if not choosing "End of page" in html properties, where do you suggest me to choose for it?

Thanks

I'll look into safari issue, maybe its my man issue

The statcounter code is to be placed before the end <body> tag and not end of the page.

Thanks Crispy68!
