Try example code:

alert(document.body.clientWidth);

The result is "0".

Reproducible: Always
I get 1351 using javascript:alert(document.body.clientWidth); at this bugzila page with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b10pre) Gecko/20110119 Firefox/4.0b10pre SeaMonkey/2.1b2pre
I get "0" too using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101203 Firefox/3.6.13 ID:20101203075014 & Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b10pre) Gecko/20110119 Firefox/4.0b10pre ID:20110119030331
It works for me also with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101203 Firefox/3.6.13 and the Firefox startpage. 
Try it without extensions ?
Yes, I tried without extensions on different machines.

Interesting thing: when I use it on major sites - such as www.google.com - it also returns "0".

In previous versions of Firefox - document.body.clientWidth worked fine.

Strange..
