Sometimes when visiting http://www.gamespy.com, there'll be a large gray block in the middle, causing the contents to be much wider than they should be. Often, doing a reload will make this go away. I've seen this on and off for months, using both Mozilla normal and Mozilla Firebird. Just saw it again with Firebird build 20030504, Win98SE. (Will attach screenshot after this). I'm guessing this is a dupe, but I'm not sure what the root cause is.
Created attachment 122642 [details] Screenshot of the problem Shot showing the large gray area between the left column and the rest of the page.

To TE. The page purports to be XHTML Transitional, but contains approximately one hundred errors (beginning with a bad DOCTYPE) that, when corrected, result in correct page display. The site developer should be contacted and urged to correct their pages to be valid and well-formed XHTML.
Greg, do you know what it is in the HTML that causes this? The reason I ask is that this problem seems intermittent, and there have been a few occasions (not often, though) where doing a force reload will cause the problem to go away, which makes it sound like it could be a Mozilla bug.
It's probably the extra </td> and </tr> tags. It's not a Mozilla bug. The XHTML is just bad.

Duping to bug 179873, which also is about gamespy showing the content to the right and leaving a blank grey cell. See bug 179873 comment 0. Please reopen if you disagree.
