Google+ mobile in Firefox

Firefox messes up layout of the Google+ mobile page - perhaps due to WebKit-specific code on the web page?

(1) Go to on your phone, log in with an account that has Google+ enabled

Result: (see screenshot) - layout is broken, icons show the wrong size, which renders the service impossible to use with Firefox. Layout works well 

Expected: no layout issues

I attached the HTML source of the page for reference

Google+ Page Source
Comment 3 Thomas Arend [:tarend] 2011-06-29 09:00:22 PDT
I added the actual page source (the attached PDF cut off some HTML) for your reference. Also: viewing the page in desktop Firefox shows the exact same layout issues.

Google+ on Safari vs. Firefox
Comment 5 Matt Brubeck (:mbrubeck) 2011-07-28 11:05:38 PDT
The page served to Firefox for Android uses the following WebKit-only markup without fallbacks for other browsers:

-webkit-animation-duration, -webkit-animation-names, -webkit-animation-timing-function, -webkit-keyframes
-webkit-box, -webkit-box-align, -webkit-box-orient, -webkit-box-sizing
-webkit-transition, -webkit-transform

(This list may be incomplete.)

Should this be moved to evangelism?  I don't know if there is anything we can do on our side here.
Comment 8 Robert O'Callahan (:roc) (email my personal email if necessary) 2011-09-03 06:46:48 PDT
We support almost exact equivalents for all those properties in comment #5 except
* -webkit-box, -webkit-box-align, -webkit-box-orient (there are -moz-box variants, but they might not work the same in all cases)
*  -webkit-tap-highlight-color
Comment 9 Robert O'Callahan (:roc) (email my personal email if necessary) 2011-09-10 06:29:00 PDT
This definitely needs to be a Tech Evangelism bug. Google is serving us pages that are designed to only work in Webkit.

Let me try to find someone from Google who could help…
Comment 11 Paul Rouget [:paul] 2011-09-15 13:43:22 PDT
Stephen Lau from Google said: "There is already a bug assigned internally for that".!/stevel/status/114438611931381761

… wait and see.

Firefox 8

Mostly good except for the nearby/circles bar.
Comment 13 :Ehsan Akhgari 2012-03-27 15:29:42 PDT
Now it looks mostly ok except for button backgrounds (which causes some buttons to only show up as text).

Re-tested this. The quality of application outside the buttons issues mentioned in comment 13 are still correct - It's a good experience outside of the button issues. The layout team probably does not need to worry about this (issues are minor).
Comment 15 Jason Smith [:jsmith] 2012-05-05 15:48:09 PDT
Renaming given that the problem now isn't the layout is busted, its just now a minor issue with modal dialogs.
Comment 16 Karl Dubost :karlcow 2013-10-17 10:35:23 PDT
The last time, this was tested was 2012-04-03. Is the issue still there? It seems a low hanging fruit.

No longer valid - this site looks different. Although the menu is entirely broken - will open a separate bug for this.
