Description

Doctype: loose DTD, with CSS2, validates at W3C.org.
A DIV element, whose position, height, and width are controlled by CSS2 
contains text (inside several P elements). Instead of rendering the text and 
padding within the allotted horizontal space, Mozilla renders the text as 
though the box were about 10% wider than it really is, forcing the user to 
scroll horizontally to read each line.

Examples at:

and

The percentage bottom padding is what seems to cause issues here....  Seeing the
bug on Linux too.
