.com - Title bar displays wrong
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:0.9.6) Gecko/20011120 BuildID: 2001112009 On the webpage of http://www.ffobsession.com/ which is the main page on the site, there are two distinctive lines which aren't supposed to be found in the layout title bar when viewed. These two lines can't be seen in Netscape communicator 4.79 however in any Mozilla based engine most noticably Netscape 6.2 and Mozilla 0.9.6. they appear but aren't supposed too. The very first line appears in this .jpg file http://www.ffobsession.com/layout/3-2.jpg just underneath the bottom lip of the young girl in the title bar. The next line appears here http://www.ffobsession.com/layout/4.jpg at the shoulder level. When viewed in Internet Explorer the lines do not appear, yet when using the JAVA console nothing came up. Can someone get a testcase of the entire layout.jpg file at the top to demonstrate both lines? Hopefully then another test case showing the layout bar in Internet explorer could be taken to display how it is supposed to look. The layout bar uses individual pictures but hopefully someone can get the whole thing When e-mailing the webmaster about this last time the site was much worse but for some reason the two lines couldn't be fixed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.ffobsession.com/ 2. Notice the right corner of the two .jpg files that there are two lines running through the layout.jpg files 3.

I have contacted the webmaster about this already including everything you posted about DOCtype and yet he doesn't respond. He has posted updates to his sites but doesn't seem to care about the two lines on the two.jpg files.
Thomas, ok. Let's give him until January and follow up with him again. If he still won't respond we can mark it wontfix. Is this site important to you? accepting to show contacted.

I like this site a lot and more importantly feel the Mozilla/Netscape browser should be able to display everysite as the webmaster designed it to be. No not everytime is that possible but I would like to see those two lines dissapeared. I have contacted him once again this time at his new E Mail address RobMcDougall@ffobsession.com If in January he doesn't reply then yes mark it won't fix as there are more important bugs that the staff needs to work on and I do also want to see Mozilla's 1.0 milestone be very succesful. And thanks for making the corrections to some Tech evangelism products I reported as it has helped me improve the way I report things.
Hello, I am Rob McDougall, owner and webmaster of FF Obsession. I thank you for reporting the error, unfortunatly with the Holiday season, the semister near its end, and the such I have not had much time for the site. This will be attended to. I am glad to see the number of Netscape users that hit the site and increase am quite angry at myself for not fixing this sooner as I want the site to be properly viewable by the largest audience possible, including users of Netscape on Windows, 'Nix, et all. I applaud Netscape 6's stricter following of HTML standards and the Mozilla project (open source good, shared source bad). Again, I want to thank you for not only reporting this, but also providing the fix.
Thanks Rob! Your comments made my day!, let's follow up in Feb.
Target Milestone: Jan → Feb
Bclary thanks so much for providing the fix. Yes I did report the problem and also sent it to Rob but had it not been for your fix this wouldn't be possible. I have already learned so much from this Mozilla open end source, and can't thank the Netscape team enough. Rob it's great to see you back. My apologies for all the-emails that I sent you but I am a big Final Fantasy fan and just wanted to see the site as compatible with Netscape/Mozilla as possible. Thank you both.

In viewing the website with Mozilla build 2002111508 in the 2002 home updated version of Windows XP service pack 1, the problem has been fixed. I went to the site and now a redirect takes the viewer to the messageboard where the graphic displays perfectly. Setting to fixed.
