Dreamweaver live view does not match actual posted website configuration

I am unable to get Dreamweaver live view to match my posted websites on either Safari or Firefox.  Why?  The design looks great in Dreamweaver in the Live and Split views but text boxes, menu bars and content boxes shift when posted.

Also, I can not get my pages to work using the Preview setting.  Can anyone help?

This is on a Mac Pro if that makes a difference.

Thank you all.

1) Start by fixing  your code errors.

2) Your site is not responsive which means you're alienating a big segment of mobile & tablet users.

3) You cannot precisely align elements over a complex background image and expect it to look correct in all devices.  That's a bit like trying to nail jelly to the ceiling.  It won't work on the web.

Does your code contain any errors? Errors can effect display in both DW & browsers.

What's the URL to your online site? 

Did you upload all scripts and CSS files to your server?

The URL is: https://www.dreamdayjewelry.com/

This page looks absolutely correct in Dreamweaver both in Split and Live view. As you can see, it has severe issues when posted.

Thank you for any help.

Also, I did not have this problem in previous issues of Dreamweaver.

Ok, thank you for your reply. I will make those changes and reconfigure in a responsive format.

Sometime the photographer in me gets in the way of good web development.
