Text Won't Center Align

When I put text in a text box, I am currently having a problem with it not wanting to center. If I go to the Yola site builder and click "align center," it will center on the screen, but I cannot save the change. If I change the text, I can save changes, but they will still not be centered after I published. When I check the alignment of the text after moving on to edit another page or coming back to the Yola site builder, the "left align" is again selected. This is a common problem with almost every text text box Widget on the site, although a couple are working. I have tried replacing the Widgets with new ones as well. This problem started at least a month ago, but I kept thinking it would be corrected and it didn't really make the site look bad until I updated one of the pages this evening. (Site - www.itvrescue.com - The page that I feel doesn't look right with the alignment problem is the "Happy Tails From Home" page.) Thank you for any help!

Hello itvrescue,

Thanks for your comprehensive and clear report on this issue.

Like you I also am waiting for a fix on these and other issues. Of course we can go in and change margins etc and although effective, a real pain to endure. I hope they can get onto it quickly in the New Year.

The staff return from their break on the 2nd January so here's hoping they will be super charged and fix these "little" issues.

Hi itvrescue,

I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing this trouble. Are you using FF8 by any chance? If so, there is a known bug with centering text using FF8. If you can try using a different browser or reverting to an earlier version of Firefox, this should rectify the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will let you know when the centering has been addressed with Firefox 8.

Hi marykatedick,

There are no known issues of this sort in Chrome so we'll need to take a look at your website for clues. What's your website address?
