From Bugzilla Helper:

On the right hand side of the page there are photos of columnists with their
names.  The first one, Allan Fotheringham, will at first have his photo being
overwritten with his name, when you first access one of the editorials -
although for some reason the rendering is always correct on the summary page

Interestingly, when you access an editorial, if you hover the mouse over any one
of the links in the same table, then the rendering corrects itself, with his
name moving below the image!  You can then reproduce the error by going to a
different editorial.  

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to http://globeandmail.com/comment
2. Click on an editorial link under "additional comment stories"
3. observe the image of Allan Fotheringham on the right side

Actual Results:  The name of Allan Fotheringham appears on top of his image.

Expected Results:  Mozilla should do immediately what is actually will do if you
hover the mouse over any link in the same table: it will move his name below his

It seems to be connected to the fact that his name is long and will not fit to
the right of the image

I see this in Netscape 6.1 too. I have a reduced testcase that wil help a bit,
just hover over the text-link and it will reflow and go wrong. However, in the
recent 0.9.4 branch build, the testcase is not always able to reproduce the
problem (the page is, however).

Over to tables to have a look.

Floated image is probably the problem, not the table. Chris, please feel free to
send it back if you rule out problems in tables.

In the 2nd attachment with an empty cache, the cell block containing the floater 
is given as much width as it wants but it is not enough. -->waterson

I'm not able to reproduce this; however, it sounds an awful lot like bug 48138.
I'll mark as a dependant for now; we'll see if this goes away with dbaron's
block landing.
Depends on: 48138

I forgot to mention that I was using a fairly old build, so hopefully it is

It is similar to bug 97776 which was closed as WFM.

It's been at least ten months since this was fixed... This bug can now be closed
by someone with permission to do so.
OK, resolving as worksforme since we don't know what fixed it.
