Unable to view top or bottom of FaceBook. Top is covered by header so Home, Profile and other tabs are not seen. On the bottom, the notification icon is hidden.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to
2. look at the page, upper tabs are hidden underneath the header column
3. the notification icon is hidden behind the footer
Actual Results:  
I've captured the screen and can provide the image. This is my first time using SeaMonkey, but I've been a long time user of Mozilla and Firefox.

Expected Results:  
Same results

Allow the pixel location to view the header and footer of facebook page

Can you reproduce with SeaMonkey v2.0a3 / current v2.0b1pre?
Version: unspecified → SeaMonkey 1.1 Branch
Various features in facebook do not work in Seamonkey 1.1.17, but they do in Firefox 3.0.8, such as the header view described here, and the chat feature.
This is the same issue I was having. Try going to about:config and searching for general.useragent.extra.seamonkey and changing it to Firefox/2.0. Facebook is browser sniffing and sending the wrong HTML to seamonkey.
Yes Mike that works.

Is there a chance they're doing something specific to SeaMonkey? I don't see this in Camino with the "like Firefox" portion of Camino's UA string removed, for instance.

Can someone please try this with a current SeaMonkey trunk nightly? I can't tell whether this is:

* a Gecko 1.8 problem, or 
* a combination of funky sniffing + Gecko 1.8, or 
* purely funky sniffing

If the same problem exists in a SeaMonkey trunk nightly, it's probably bad sniffing. If the problem disappears, it's probably Gecko 1.8 (although someone should spoof Sm trunk as 1.1.x to verify this).
After a bit more investigation, this seems to be a problem with user-agent detection mixed with Gecko 1.8.  The page renders correctly with Gecko 1.9 & the SeaMonkey user-agent, but chat is still disabled.
Ever confirmed: true
Facebook seems to have updated their UA detection recently. Is this still a problem for anyone who was originally seeing it?
Seems OK now thanks
