Build Id:
Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Linux armv71; rv:2.0b13pre) Gecko/20110309 Firefox/4.0b13pre Fennec/4.0b6pre

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Open a new tab and go to
3. Go back to the first tab with facebook loaded
4. Pan down to the bottom of the page

Actual Results:
There will be a grey/empty/blank area at the bottom of the page until a user closes the offline storage/geolocation notifications from the other tab

Expected Results:
There shouldn't be a grey/empty/blank area on one tab due to notifications popped-down on another tab.

should be fixed by bug 639985, if I am guessing correctly

I don't think these are the same. All our notification boxes are in a deck:



And each box contains a set nois width-width and window-height wide. When the notification box shows, one of the grows to window-height + notification-height.

Sorry. Keyboard failure on my end. One simple workaround for fixing this is actually stack the notification box and the browser. Of course, that makes it so that you can't pan the top row of content out from behind the notification box either (but our notifications are so big that they are hard to ignore anyway).

Sees a bit scary to take so late. Surprising none of us saw this until now anyway.

I'd like to talk to madhava and brian about dropping the blue notification boxes and switching to door hanger arrow boxes. That could make this better too I think.

Let's try this for now. I still want to remove the notification boxes altogther and use door hangers, but not for Fx6.
