White spaces in Firefox for Android

In summary, when using Firefox for Android to visit forums, it is common to encounter tall white spaces between and within posts that can greatly increase scrolling height. This is often caused by embedded ads. It is suggested to use the PF app instead of the Firefox browser for a better experience.

I often visit these forums on Firefox for Android. It is quite common to find tall white spaces within posts and between posts, that you have to scroll through to reach the next block of text. This seems to happen most often when an ad is embedded with the post. The white spaces can increase the scrolling height by as much as ten times the actual page content.

Is this just me, or is it a known problem?
