DESCRIPTION: Modification of table cells through the DOM results in their positions shifting vertically by a few pixels. STEPS TO REPRODUCE: Download the four when-com.* files in http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~dbaron/nstmp/M9-3/ . Load them in viewer (or apprunner, or the sidebar...) Click on some of the tabs at the bottom. For example, click "Date", then "List", then "Date" again. ACTUAL RESULTS: As you click on the tabs (which are table cells), you will see their positions move up and down by a few pixels at various times. I don't understand exactly why it happens. EXPECTED RESULTS: No dancing. BUILDS TESTED: * Linux, apprunner, 1999-08-16-08-M9 * Linux, viewer, 1999-08-16-08-M9 * other Linux builds and (I think??) Windows ones. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: I think the JS file in the example contains a workaround that slightly reduces the effects of this bug. Thus, let me verify it after taking that workaround out, too. I suspect that this bug may be the same thing as what happens in bug 11944. However, I'm not sure and would thus like to track it as a separate issue. However, I will mark bug 11944 as a dependency.
Does this happen with Win and Mac?
This looks fixed in 1999-08-24-09-M10 Win95 apprunner. I suspect it's fixed completely now, since 11944 is fixed. I'll double-check on Linux.
