css max width / height function making table column behaving strangely

css max width / height function making table column behaving strangely

I have a random comic page that pops up on my main index page at www.comicracy.com , its lower on the page and you have to scroll down. On certain browsers and computers when a random page shows up that is longer then taller it makes the colummn width of the table grow extra wide and distorts the entire design of the page. I am using everything I can think of but the collumn still distorts. The image itself is resized and I am using the max width / height because I can't have static dimensions as it would distort the image. Any ideas why this behavior is occuring and how I can finally eliminate it. I was under the impression if the max width was less then the column widht it wouldn't affect it. Thanks.

Also you may not be able to see the distortion as it only happens on certain computers, to get a page with the longer width dimensions you will just have to keep hitting refresh.

I haven't been able to reproduce this error that you're describing. No matter what dimensions the image that shows up in the random comic page section, it always fits within a certain sized box. You say it only happens on certain computers and on certain images. Can you narrow down which images this happens on? Also, is there something in common for the computers that this happens on? What kind of browser is used, which operating system, a certain type of security software, etc?
