<table width="900" border="0" align="center">
<tr>
<td><iFRAME name="mainmenu" SRC="home.htm"></td>
</tr>

If you want the page (or part of it) to resize with the browser window, don't use fixed widths. You have made the TD 900 pixels wide and that it is.

I think the OP wants something like this: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/iframessi2.htm

But note that the example uses

CODE
<iframe
...
scrolling="no"
...
style="overflow:visible; width:100%; display:none"></iframe>


Which might cause problems. If javascript is unsupported or disabled, scrolling="no" disables scrollbars and "display:none" removes the iframe completely. It would be better to set these properties from the script instead (but only after checking that the browser supports the rest). Also there's no alternative content if iframes are unsupported.

A better solution than iframes is to use server-side includes, but the OP's webhost probably doesn't allow that. Another idea is to use a text editor that supports multiple file search & replace (e.g. TextPad or NoteTab), then you can easily change say a menu on all your pages.

Can you post a link to a sample page?

And does the demo at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/iframessi2.htm work in your Firefox?

Seems it works on the other pages, just not when you load the About page. Could it be because that page (incorrectly) uses a Frameset Doctype?

Also you need ALT text for the images (especially the links).

And rather than javascript-dependent links like

<a href="java script:loadintoIframe('myframe', 'home.htm')">

you should use real ones, like

<a href="home.htm" onclick="loadintoIframe('myframe', 'home.htm'); return false">

My guess is that the JavaScript isn't needed at all. See the FAQ: http://www.htmlhelp.com/faq/html/frames.html#frame-target
