User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

This page looks wrong in Mozilla.  Other browsers display it correctly.  You suck!

Nah, I just wanted to say that.  Here's the true "gist".

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=80207&item=6736380447&rd=1

In Firefox 1.0 en-US RELEASE:

In Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1

Yes, I don't know why, but I know this happens on Win2000 and WinXP (it was
mentioned to me by a friend running Win2k).  Not only does the text and table
overlap, as seen properly in IE, but the other 'updates' also move up to overlap
each other.  It's insanely odd.

And yes, I checked the "Mozilla Web Developer FAQ" for standards, almost
standards, and quirks, and while that's fantastic for people who design
webpages, it doesn't help me debug them.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=80207&item=6736380447&rd=1
2. Scroll down
3. Gaze at the oddness

Actual Results:  
I saw oddness.

Expected Results:  
I should have seen the 'updates' to the auction, one by one, instead of
overlapping each other.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.

The eBay page has been changed anyway and I did not create a local copy. 
Therefore this bug cannot be fixed as the problem in the code cannot be found.

Self-marking invalid.
