I chose to use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer due to the ability to full screen two broswers at the same time.
Two browsers have been opened pointing to two different SQL Server Reporting Services reports (using a URL of the machine's default web site).  Unfortunately this was not enough, I had to use the IE Tab + add-on because the reports were not formatting correctly (as defined in the XML).  Specifically, some border lines were missing, width of columns were descreased, data designed to be read from top to bottom was reading from left to right.
I would like to use Firefox without any add-ons if possible.
Thanks for any help you are able to provide...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an SSRS Report

Actual Results:  
Report was not formatted as designed.

Expected Results:  
Formatted the report as designed.
"Reason is, Browser displays SSRS report data thru IFrame. In Firefox, the IFRAME's height defaults to a few hundred pixels, so that you can see the top 2 inches of the report. In IE, IFrames automatically fixed to Data height, so it works fine in IE."
But that is not the problem.  It wouldn't be so bad if the report didn't open full screen, I could just force that.  The report opens in Firefox with missing borders, truncated column widths and rotated text.
I believe it should open as the report was produced no?  i.e. with all border lines intact and column widths and text direction kept the same.
I hope this can be resolved in the future so we will have not only an awesome solution but a stable one.  Thanks.

Reporter -> Are you still experiencing this issue with the latest version of Firefox 5?

Please provide a public URL or reduced test case the exhibits this issue.
Hi Tim, thanks for the follow-up.  Unfortunately I cannot upgrade to Firefox 5 because the last time I did this it caused the IE Tab + add-on to crash every 10 minutes or so.  This is a production environment and at the moment I don't have anywhere else to test this.
Saying that when I did upgrade I still had to use the IE Tab + add-on because all the problems mentioned above still existed...
