Display woes, and community generated solutions

A bizarre (and uncharacteristic) bug on the usually brilliant Firefox caused a stir over at yesterday.

To start with, some kind of guillotining bug on long content – more characteristic of a certain popular browser – was spoiling the display of long pages, truncating them by up to 50%.

An important fix to this spawned another problem, with the introduction of an unsightly flash of page background colour, making the page rendering somewhat less than slick.

A workaround, although less than ideal, seems to fix the worst of the problem.

To my surprise I had something to do with it. What’s more, Mr Zeldman kindly offered a copy of his excellent designing with web standards (third edition) as a gift!

I love a happy ending.
