From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011012 BuildID: 2001101201 Load the page, the center region of the page ( Below the "Tahoe central member LOG ON" frame and to the right of the "Search tahoe central" frame ) has a dark blue background except for a white square in the upper left hand corner. Load the page under netscape 4.77 and the background appears white. I believe the white background is correct, since some of the text is mostly illegeble with the blue background. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load the URL under mozilla 2. load it under netscape 3. compare the results

Got it. Test cases to follow, demonstrating what's going on. The page has an HTML-style comment (i.e. <!-- ..... -->) inside its <style></style> tags. Moz doesn't like this one little bit. Remove that comment, and you ahve a white background. And some dodgy browser sniffing, but there you go.
OK, this is NOT layout. From comments in the very-similar-sounding bug 105233, I suspect that HTML comments are illegal inside style sheets, which makes this ->tech evangelism Since I'm not 100% about that, cc'ing firstname.lastname@example.org : Boris, can you confirm that I'm not talking rubbish on this.

Yup. The only sort of HTML comment that's legal in a sheet is for inline sheets (<style> element) and like this: <style type="text/css"> <!-- /* style rules go here */ --> </style> This is allowed for compatibility with really old browsers who understand not the <style> element.
