The search box in the home page of Ask Fedora seems misplaced in my browser (Firefox 23.0).

Is it a problem with my settings or with the site?

Could you elaborate what you mean by misplaced?

In both my computers running F19 (Firefox 23), there seems to be nothing wrong.

Like in this screenshot:

looks like the fonts are displaying too big, and the wrong fonts are being used. what size are fonts set to in your browser? can you try view > zoom > reset in firefox?

Or, is it a problem with not allowing scripts(noscript, etc.)? (Just a conjecture).

The zoom was reset, but duffy is right about the fonts, if I check the option to "allow pages to choose their own fonts" the problem disappears. This makes me wonder how many sites I've been experiencing with the incorrect fonts...

The reason I unchecked that option is because in some cases minimum font sizes are too small and I wanted to force the minimum size up a little bit.

I'm using FF 23 and it looks just right here. It could be some of your addons or something messing up. Try creating a new firefox profile and see if the problem persists.
