$("#someId").outerHeight()  returns different values in FF and Chrome.
I have both browsers at Ctrl-0 (default size).
What other variables are there, given both are rendering the same page with the same code?

Try this;

$(window).load(function() {
    setTimeout(function() {
        // all the logic goes here
    }, 1);
});

The different browsers have different default padding and margins for HTML elements.  Eric Meyer came up with a 'CSS reset' which is used to set as many things to 0 as possible so you can follow it up with values that will be more predictable from browser to browser.  http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/css/reset/
