Up in SF this weekend I found that my nav tabs weren't working in Opera. A while back I had also seen that they didn't work in Mac IE. I forgot to look into it back then, but did today to find it was a one-line fix. When filling a div element with no set width, apparently Mozilla and Windows IE assume the proper course is to increase its width. Opera and Mac IE assume that it's best to size the div to its largest element and then wrap everything vertically. The fix consisted of just specifying the width of my nav bar, but this is the kind of fun that makes CSS development always remain interesting.
