Facebook/Firefox shift left & clip

Postby ruggie » Wed 13 Jul 2011 10:05 GMT

Something's happening to Facebook when I access it from Firefox, but it works fine in IE.

Just after loading, it appears to shift the content left in the window and then clip the left margin to fit (I can't zoom in on pics in photo galleries - about 70% of the left side gets clipped, and I lose most of the content of comments). Looks a bit like a CSS interpretation problem, and it has gone away of its own accord once but returned later. Has anyone else suffered this? I'm on latest levels of Windows 7 and Firefox.

No problems in Firefox with Linux Mint, Ruggie. :?

I'm sure there's something corrupted on my PC, but don't want to reinstall FF yet again for the moment. I can get round the problem by opening another instance of FB in a new tab and closing the bad one. I'll hazard a guess that the latest FF update is having an argument with one of my plugins...

If that's the case, my money would be on it being a duff plugin. We're not great plugin users - they tend to snarl things up in unexpected ways - and I can think of at least a couple of instances where we've installed plugins for Kay (add-ins for paid-for services) that have turned out to be problematic.
