ComputerWorldUK "social bar" is misplaced and keeps jumping around

ComputerWorldUK's blogs have a "social bar" fixed to the bottom; on the current Native Fennec Tablet build, it is not fixed position but moves with the page - and then, when you stop scrolling, jumps to a new position. And it consistently positions itself about an inch from the bottom, rather than at the bottom.

absolutely positioned elements possible in ff12.

This is still broken in Aurora 12.0a2. You need to view a single blog post (like the URL above) and perhaps zoom in. Then you get the incredible jumping social bar.

This may, of course, be an evangelism issue.

This looks fixed... is that the case Gerv?  (There's formatting issues on the bar itself, but I believe that's a separate issue that the original case)
Tested on HTC Desire running Android 2.2.2. On load the page is displayed larger then the viewport.
On Aurora 15.0a2 2012-07-01 the social bar is loaded correctly to the right of the viewport and scrolls correctly with the page but when the user zooms out to see the hole page the bar remains on the same y coordinate and is not repositioned to the edge of the viewport.
On Nightly 16.0a1 2012-07-01 the social bar and the floating commercial at the bottom of the viewport are not displayed at all.

I have also seen on Aurora that the social bar and the commercial are displayed only after a bit of scrolling but on Nightly the 2 elements are never displayed. So this is partially fixed on Aurora (there is still the repositioning problem when the width of the viewport changes) but on Nightly there is a new issue where the elements are not displayed. For this behavior a new bug has been logged - please see bug 770128.
Depends on: 770128

Going to the desktop site this works for me. Though we get the mobile site by default.
