I'm not seeing any problems with Firefox 33.
What it does:
- loads page, loads image, while loading it's constrained to the forum viewport but there's an horizontal scrollbar matching the size of the (un-resized) image. Which is a Firefox bug.
- once image is loaded, it shows up in full un-resized glory...
- and then it's immediately constrained to the forum viewport again. Horizontal scrollbar disappears.

Then Firefox "kindly" offered to update to version 35 (I hadn't run it in a while), and it gently screwed up my entire session... Great. All tabs are gone... This kind of fuck-up hasn't happened in so long. Also, the thing is now buggy as you describe... WAY TO GO, FIREFOX!

:edit: Test...

So... I read that it was possible to fix this by clicking 'Reset Firefox'... Which I did. It proceeded to create a new profile for me. Okay, right... I've lost everything. Add-ons, tabs, etc. No problem, I'll just re-enable the old profile. And guess what..? That stupid feature removed the old profile as well!! The entire folder, including all of my manual backups!
WAY TO GO AGAIN, FIREFOX!

I'm hereby pledging that I will NEVER again use Firefox as my browser. Just like Internet Explorer, it will now be relegated to "stupid browser that I have to provide REASONABLE support for, meaning I'll try to run it once a year and see if it doesn't break everything Chrome and Opera render correctly..."

Man, I'm pissed! I lost something like 600 tabs in the process!! And because their profiles are stored in the main Windows drive, I couldn't even manually recover my old files with Recuva. I only managed to recover a 2013 session, yay, good for me... -_- One year of new tabs lost -- and one year of old tab cleanup, too. And of course Firefox 35 won't load this session anyway, I'm just stuck with an old JSON file that I'll have to manually cruise through to get my tab list, or I'll have to downgrade Firefox, I don't know... Still, great.

Phew... I guess I'm not done yet; it simply moved the profile to a new folder on my desktop. (I never use the desktop; I only read this on their troubleshooting pages.)

Guess I'll try and downgrade, now...

Phew... Fixed. I had to downgrade to v32, and then I was able to restore my old session. Good.

Now I just need to find a way to have both v32 and the latest version running around, with different profiles for each... :-/

On Firefox 34.0.5 code boxes with long lines scroll out of the screen :/

Yeah I said it's buggy in the latest.

Report the bug to them I guess... Can't fix ff for them every time they screw it up...

Or maybe they fixed the original bug for which I wrote a workaround.
I think it's in topic.js, try to find the is_firefox test and remove it... Dunno. I think that's a possibility.

Setting width for .postarea article did it for me. In my case its 700px, but im using a custom skin so might be different for the other skins.

Um, changing max-width to 38em instead of 100%, temporarily fixes the problem.

Code: [Select]
.bbc_img {
    border: 0px none;
    padding: 4px 8px;
    max-width: 38em;
}

Thought now you can't view images in full width.

Yeah I understand, I have nothing against Firefox but I find that Chrome has fewer rendering bugs overall, so I tend to favor it.
Anyway, I've got a fix for topic.js now, I've tested it and it works fine in the latest Firefox, although I'll need to test images too...
