From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20011221 BuildID: 2001122106 When the above URL is viewed in Mozilla 0.9.7, the width of the page is larger than the default widtch of the browser window, with the result that horizontal scrollbars appear. This does not happen with IE5.5 or Netscape 4.79. It is a pain to scroll the window horizontally to view the entire content. If I increase the size of the browser window, there is a cutoff point reached where the page layout width becomes equal/less than the browser window width, and the horizontal scrollbars disappear. Note that this did not used to happen with some earlier Mozilla builds (I'm not sure of the version where I first noticed this, but it could have been 0.9.5 or later). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to above URL 2. 3. Actual Results: Horizontal scrollbars appear. Expected Results: They shouldn't appear? Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to dissect the page to find out if it's a bug in Mozilla, or that bad HTML on that page is being interpreted wrongly (from a standards point of view) by IE/Netscape.
If you: 1) Close the sidebar 2) Make the Mozilla window the size of the IE window Do you see the scrollbars? If so, are IE and Mozilla using the same font size? Are there any obvious visual differences that contribute to the different widths?
I did *not* have the sidebar open. Also the fonts in IE and mozilla are more or less the same. There are some visual differences between them though. I'm going to upload two attachments: 1. Screenshot of IE(fully maximized) showing the above page 2. Screenshot of Mozilla (fully maximized) showing the above page Both the screenshots will show just the layout portion, and you should be able to see the difference. BTW, the attachments are in JPG format set for small file size, so the quality will not be that good.

Ever confirmed: true
WFM, build 2001-12-26-03 (trunk) on Windows 98 SE.
I downloaded the latest nightly (Build ID: 2001123103), and the problem is still there. After the main Times Of India banner at the top of the page, the next section of the page has the news layout in 4 columns. In Mozilla, there is a big gap between the 3rd and 4th columns, which doesn't appear in IE (today I see some bizarre layout behaviour in Netscape 4.79 as well).
I tried this again using Mozilla RC1.0, and the problem seems to have gone away. Marking FIXED.
