A portion in the middle of the ebay page is not visible, appears to have been truncated and information that should be below it is now where it should have been. But when you copy and paste the page to other applications and it shows up.  It displays fine when opened in IE and Outlook.  I'm assuming that this could happen with other ebay pages, though I don't have firsthand knowledge of any others.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: url mentioned above in Firefox to same page opened in IE
3.note differences
Actual Results:  
Part of the information is not visible in FF.  Correct page displays in IE.  Had my neighbor duplicate this problem, also.  They, too, are Firefox users.  I installed FF1.5.0.3 and opened the page and got the same problem. I installed the nightly version, firefox-3.0a1.en-US.win32.installer.exe, and still problem.

Expected Results:  
Correctly display the full information on the page.

I found another bug that might be related but it was two years old, #265861.

Items listed by the same user with basically the same information appear as they should.  Just this page seems to be fishy.

Fortunately this was a small $ item. Still, it caused miscommunication and misunderstanding between me and the seller, ultimately costing me more money than I anticipated. Imagine my surprise if a huge shipping price had been stated in this invisible section that I was then obligated to pay.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

From reporter, via email: "Unfortunately, I can't tell if this has been fixed or not because the pages I was having trouble with are no longer available to view and that seller doesn't code her pages the same anymore.  Should I go ahead and close it?"

I will mark the bug as INCOMPLETE then Denise. Thanks for getting back to me!
