Firefox and Reporting Services

Not everyone uses IE and that’s ok, but what’s strange is that by default if you point Firefox at a Reporting Services report the display gets chopped to about 200 pixels. The fix, documented on this post by Jon Galloway, is to modify the CSS to force the height (and width if you choose) to make it usable. I can’t muster the enthusiasm to figure out if it’s Firefox that is doing a bad job or if it’s the HTML emitted by Reporting Services, but at least you would think MS would just plug the couple lines into the CSS file by default.

It’s a little thing, sort of. Yet a lot of people spend a lot of time searching for the issue and pasting the code into the CSS to fix it.
