Sometimes it's just a line or two, but most often it happens to entire paragraphs. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to msnbc.com 2.Click on a story 3.About half the time, the problem occurs. Actual Results: Sometimes the text on the web page is OK, sometimes it get obscured by ads. Expected Results: It should have displayed the story in its entirety
Do you have a minimum font size set, or are you using zoom when this happens?
I am also experiencing this, no minimum size, no zoom. What is happening is that there's a missing advertisement inline with the article text (between a couple of hr tags) and that causes the article text to be shifted upwards, behind the sidebars and other content. This happened both before and after I installed the Flash plug-in and the flashblock extension. Note that not all of the ads displayed in that space are flash, some are static images and I think some are even HTML forms. Usually when this happens, clicking the Go button repeatedly fixes it eventually (Reload does too, but seems to take more tries) and when it is working, reloading often breaks it.
This is a really bad bug, making it all but impossible to use Firefox to view msnbc.com. I see this problem daily, and cannot read many of the stories. This is a very popular website and this bug should be fixed real soon. Also note that bugs https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=217657 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=312490 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=326502 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=311847 are probably the same issue.
I can't recall *ever* having seen this in Firefox or Camino (and 99% of the time I have Camino's ad-blocking turned on, which in theory, if comment 4 is accurate, should trigger this almost all the time). Unless we can come up with a concrete "here's what's broken, and here's how you fix it" example for MSNBC, I don't think there's really much here to evangelise.
