I'm getting a really weird display bug in Facebook Timeline, that renders the interface pretty much unusable.


One, two


  • Has anyone seen this precise bug?
  • Generally, when confronted with such a bug, what is the best strategy?


  • Hard refresh
  • Flush cache
  • Checking for 404s on eg CSS files
  • Inspecting some elements: some elements have weird HTML-embedded styles

@fogest All timelines (seen people and pages) – jonallard May 11 '12 at 14:02
Try a different browser. – phwd May 11 '12 at 16:28
Yes, weirdly, Chromium does not exhibit the issue. – jonallard May 11 '12 at 23:49

The only other strategies would be to use

  • a different browser
  • a new IP
  • a new internet connection
