To reproduce:
1. Go to http://live.beko-bbl.de/ (live ticker from highest Germany Basketball level league)
2. Observe that the main area is empty and two scrollbars appear at the right side (the lower one cut off)

Note that sometimes the main area (below "Beko BBL", "ProA", "ProB") should actually be empty when the current matchday is over and the games of the next matchday are not visible yet. But the second (lower) scrollbar should never be visible.

This is a regression, it worked fine with the 2012-08-04 build and is broken in the 2012-08-05 (and newer) build.
Checkins: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=20fc34efd733&tochange=9453cf029b72
Unfortunately this range contains quite a lot of checkins, so this regression range probably needs some improvement or someone who can make an educated guess what bug might have caused this.
(forgot to mention this :)
Expected Results:
In the main area of that web page the games of the current matchday should be visible.
The site used MooTools Version 1.2 as follows..
			<script src="js/mootools-1.2-core.js?v=8" type="text/javascript"></script>
			<script src="js/mootools-1.2-more.js?v=8" type="text/javascript"></script>

So, this is the site bug.

I've contacted them and asked them to upgrade their MooTools version as the live ticker might break with Firefox 18.
Let's follow up in bug 789036 to make sure that we fix for FF18 again as necessary (bug 793781).
Juan - can you retest to see if we're still seeing this in FF18?

The left hand side shows a fragment of the page in Fx17.0.1 where the live scores are displayed.

The right hand side shows the same page in Fx18b3 where this doesn't work.
Thanks Juan. Outreach has already been performed - they can fix themselves after release, since this isn't a critical issue.
I've reminded them again that their live ticker is still broken with the now released version of Firefox 18.
They fixed this a few days ago by upgrading the MooTools version.
