Metadata CSS? Removing Extra Space on Specific Components? LinksList CSS?

I've been working on making me a new layout (and actually thought I wouldn't need to ask for help! LOL). Anyway...

1) Is there a way to customize the font size and line height of the metadata with CSS? I've tried many different things, including this code (see below), but nothing is working as well as expected.

2) Is there a way to fix the empty padding-ish space on specific extra components (specifically my random quote component - I think it only shows up in Firefox)?

3) Lastly, Is there anyway to spcifically adjust/customize the appearance of the linklist via CSS (hover and such) without effecting other portions of the layout as well? I assumed not, but thought I should ask just in case.

Comment Links Position

For some reason, in the Comment pages, my Edit Comment, Delete Comment, Freeze, etc. links/icons are right next to my username. I've looked over my code and even browsed through other's visible layers to see what I've done wrong, but I still can't figure it out :(

I've included an image below the cut to make my point clearer:

'Quick' Reply, Image Sizes, Customize Entries on Reply Page, etc.

lol, I had more questions than I thought I had. I'm new at Component. (:

1. I thought it was impossible with Component, but I just found that this community's layout does what I want my journal to do.

When I click on 'reply', I have to wait for my reply page to load before I can actually write my comment. What I wanted was that, when you click on said 'reply' link, the reply form will pop out automatically, just like when you click 'leave a comment' on a Flexible Squares layout.

2. On an unrelated though slightly similar note... okay, I don't know how to explain it properly, so here's the scenario: I have a poll. You know with polls, there is 'view answers', and when you click that link it will say 'loading' and then the answers pop out automatically. With my Component layout, just like with the comments, it takes me to a separate page instead of just appearing automatically on the same page. How can I fix this problem?

3. I notice my layout squishes large images so they won't go over the page. I do appreciate it does that, but the graphics come out ugly and pixelated instead. Is there an alternative for this? Like, say, a scrollbar would be preferrable. Something like that.

4. I am now using the code provided in this tutorial on customizing entries on reply pages. It says there:

### If you're replying to a comment, you need to set some options below to make it look like an entry. ###

What options do I need to set? It doesn't say so in the code (or maybe I am just too blind?).
