Update : As question from YUSUF left in my blog related to problems on long post titles and width of post in home page ,here is the solution
Find this h2.storyTitle {
color: #000000;
float: none;
font-size: 2.6em;
font-weight: bold;
line-height: 120%;
margin-bottom: 5px;
width: 585px;
and delete width: 585px;
Then find div.storyContent {
float: none;
margin-bottom: 20px;
width: 585px;
delete width: 585px;
To fix the problem with recent posts/comments tab when post title is long :
First ,find this

div#sidebar div.tabsContainer ul.panes ul li h4 {
left: 70px;
position: absolute;
top: 15px;
and delete all of them
Second ,find this

div#sidebar div.tabsContainer ul.panes ul li p.meta {
bottom: 0;
color: #85837E;
font-size: 0.9em;
left: 70px;
line-height: 120%;
overflow: hidden;
position: absolute;
Then change it to

div#sidebar div.tabsContainer ul.panes ul li p.meta {
color: #85837E;
font-size: 0.9em;
line-height: 120%;
margin-left: 60px;

the last step : Find this

div#sidebar div.tabsContainer ul.panes ul.comments li h4 {left:35px; width:250px;}
And replace it with

div#sidebar div.tabsContainer ul.panes ul.comments li h4 {
margin-left: 20px;
