When report displays in FireFox, it is not rendered correectly

Hello,

I have an Asp.net C# application that displays a reporting services report using the
Report viewer control. The report looks fabulous in Internet Explorer, but when viewed
in Mozilla Firefox, the report is only displayed in a tiny little window with scroll bars. The
report can then only be viewed by moving the scroll bars. Plus only about one half of the
report (Width and Height) can be seen at any one time.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I tried creating a blank text box in the body of web form, and then in the properties specifying that the textbox can not grow or shrink. This did not fix the problem though. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I am using VS 2008 with .NET 3.5, along with the laster version of the Mozillar browser. That is version
3.0.10

Do you mean the HTML isn't being rendered correctly (ie. misshapen elements, items in the wrong place) or that the window is simply too small to display the page.

If it's the latter, can you validate the HTML generated by the reported viewer? You may find a great deal of non standards-compliant HTML on the page.

The window is too small, and appears with scroll bars. When displayed in internet explorer the report works fine. I believe valid HTML has nothing to do with the problem. I validated the html and it is perfect. I will upload a screen snapshot this evening to illustrate my point. I am curious ooblayly, do you have any experience with Reporting services for .NET? (I ask that respectfully sir)

Not much experience with Reporting Services, but have a good deal of experience sorting out rendering differences between all the browsers out there. That's the reason I answered, but as you don't appear to be having any rendering issues (or at least HTML rendering issues) I'm afraid I'm probably not going to be of much assistance.

oobayly, I appreciate the help. I think this might be a Microsoft versus Mozilla Firefox issue. I noticed other post on the web having the same problem. I am hoping someone knows a fix to this problem. I am uploading the screen snapshot now.
