Firefox overflow problem
I have this kind of weird thing with FF on my site. The site is a pivot-based blog, and it features a main page with one outer container div which holds 3 divs for header, menu and "main"-content. The "main"-content div contains the introductions to entries with a "x comments already link" whick links to the page of the specific entry, which is done in php (I guess?) like this "entry.php?id=32#comm"
This is where the weird thing happens, SOMETIMES, ONLY in Firefox, and ONLY the first time you click on the link, the entrypage opens with the view centered on the comments, but cutting off the header and parts of the menu and main div, anything which exceeds the window edge, is either cropped sometimes, or disappears behind the "outer" container, as if overflow=hidden was set or something.
the strange thing is this NEVER happens when you right klick and "open link in new window", or when you copy paste the link...
and whenever this error occurs and I press 'refresh page', the problem is gone, and the page is displayed normally. quite strange...
Is this maybe a Firefox bug, since nothing seems to be wrong with the link itself?
Anyway, for reference you can check the site out here, try it, maybe it's just me:
