From Bugzilla Helper:

Sometimes when is
viewed, the page displays normally. At other times, however, it will render with
the text being placed to the right of the banner ad at the top of the page.
Clicking Reload will randomly switch between the two.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open or some other
article linked from
2.If page displays normally, click Reload to see if problem occurs.
3.Repeat step 2 as necessary to duplicate problem (should not require very many

Actual Results:  Main text from article appears to the right of the top banner
ad (with my regular browsing window, I have to scroll to the right off-screen to
see the text)

Expected Results:  Main text should appear directly below the top banner ad

I could not duplicate the problem after saving the document to my hard disk and
viewing locally. So adding a DOCTYPE to turn off Quirks mode did nothing, the
document displayed normally.

Also, I could not reproduce the problem when viewing the page with the browser
expanded to fill the 1024x768 screen.

Testing possible workarounds reveals that hitting the Back button and then
hitting the Forward button again results in the page displaying normally.
Collapsing the window to just the title bar and then restoring it does not.
Hiding Mozilla and then bringing it back to the fore also does nothing.

Reporter, I can't reproduce with the Jan 14th build under OS X. Could you please
try with a newer nightly build  ?

Downloaded the latest nightly and the problem appears to be fixed. Could not
reproduce. Way to go.  :)
