Attached image screenshot on Fennec
Visit URL on fennec Native.  Verify the site shows divs laying all over each other, while it lays out much nicer in Chrome or Stock android.  

No signs of webkit css. 

Also, Chrome or Stock Android doesn't seem to be serving up the Ads.  likely UA sniffing?

1) launch fennec nightly 03-13-2013 build
2) visit URL
3) Verify layout issues

- no layout issues like the screenshot

- divs laying all over each other

There is a menu meant to slide in/out from the right. If this menu starts out opened, it wil overlay the page in an ugly way on the small screen. This also happens in the stock browser if the menu is expanded (click the small triangle pointing left-wards). So the real bug is that the menu is expanded by default in Fx.
This is caused by missing window.orientation - site thinks we're in landscape mode and doesn't bother collapsing the menu. Is there a master bug for this?

This is the code, from job_min_view__en_gb.js:

return !(0!=window.orientation&&180!=window.orientation)
Not sure whom to ask about this - Jason, do you know? I haven't found any master bug so I'm moving this to core and attached a TC.

920342 also fails because it assumes window.orientation.
Also orientationchange event support is detected through window.orientation in jQuery Mobile:

Lawrence, this breaks some jQuery mobile stuff and we've found a couple of sites affected so far. It's a new (small) feature that I think we should implement in core. It consists of:

window.orientation - takes values like 0, 90, -90, 180 depending on how the device is held
orientationchange event that fires when the device is rotated

How can I nom or push this forward? Who should I nag?
