I see a gray (or checkerboard) area to the bottom and the right side has similar rendering issues. Is the viewport meta tag badly specified?

Seems better in landscape.

In Fennec for Android, ebay.com redirects to http://hp.mobileweb.ebay.com/home which includes:

<META name="viewport" content="user-scalable=no, width=device-width, height=device-height">

However, it looks like one of the elements below "Daily Deals" extends past the device width, making the document larger.  You can also see this by loading the site in Minefield (with a Fennec user-agent) and making the window narrow.

Reloading the page sometimes fixes the layout.

The page includes some stylesheets with WebKit-specific CSS, though I haven't tested whether that is what breaks the layout.

easy to repro.  i've seen many other sites that do this, should we be tracking them in individual bugs?
