I noticed that this is happening on wiki pages only.
I guess that makes it a regression from bug 670222 then.

On what wiki pages are you seeing this only? On wiki.mozilla.org?
Blocks: 670222

The site is: www.wikipedia.org, but I have seen issue on another site too: www.mediafax.ro
Ok, thanks, I can see it on this page, for example.
Attached file testcase
Apparently, it happens with meta user-scalale=0 pages.
So perhaps this is a regression from bug 672411 instead?
