I believe the fix for Ticket #3838 ( changed the value of $(document).height() in Firefox (using 12). While in Chrome and IE9 the value is consistent.

I can't reproduce this in jsFiddle as I think the result iframe's css works around this issue but this pastebin ( will demonstrate the problem.

In 1.7.1, the scrollHeight of the body element will be returned, while in 1.7.2 the clientHeight of the html element will be returned.

(I reported this in the comments of ticket #3838 -

Fix #11724, $(document).height() in Firefox 12. Closes gh-802.

This reopens #3838 for IE6 which is a regression on a fix in 1.7.2, but we'd rather break a really old IE than a really recent Firefox.
