Anyone having trouble seeing all of the main page with Mozilla? November 27, 2004 9:54 AM   Subscribe

Anyone having trouble seeing all of the main page with Mozilla? I can see all the posts with IE, but with Mozilla (latest) I see one and only one post. Cleared cache, same problem...

I'm using Firefox, and I am not having that problem. (I know its a different browser, but it's a variant so I thought I'd let you know for troubleshooting purposes.)

Problem has gone away as of this moment.... this is not the first time I've seen this behavior. Oh well.

I've had the same problem in the past once or twice. Only one post shows up. I just rebooted Firefox.

Don't reboot the browser-- flip the font size around a bit. All the content is there, just pushed down.

This looks like the product of the rounding error bug complex. The Mozilla engine does some rounding of layout values at the sub-pixel level every time the page is refreshed. Because the rounding thing builds on previous results the problem is rather erratic. Probably not helped by the the dynamic nature of the front page.

To de-techify: the contents of the first column intrude on the space of the second column, telling it to get out of the way.

Everything looks fine...
Before the refresh of death

Then reload and...
After the refresh of death
