I have been putting up with FF's bad and horrible rendering engine for 
as long as it has existed.
No one is taking note.

Perhaps (I conjecture here) that the web page being
viewed was created using Microsoft web tools
which use features or attributes in the resulting web
content, that FF simply does not know what to do with
or implements them incorrectly.

Perhaps MS is highjacking the web page standards in
the same way they had tried to highjack java.
