STEPS TO REPRODUCE Open apprunner or viewer, with url "resource:/res/samples/test1.html" with the window is less than the width of the longest <pre> line (list-style: square outside url(resource:/res/gear1.gif); ) in my case 200 pixels wide is small enough. ACTUAL RESULTS 1. The grey background of the <pre> box is fixed to the width of the visible window, not the scrollable window. If the horizontal scrollbar is dragged to the right the background behind the <pre> text turns white. 2. The right of the background animated image at the bottom of the page sometimes redraws statically, sometimes not at all depending on how slowly/quickly the horizontal scrollbar is dragged right/left. EXPECTED RESULTS 1. The grey background behind the <pre> box to extend to the right of the page when fully scrolled to the right. 2. The animated background to be consistently animated when scrolled to the right of the page. BUILD DATE & PLATFORM Linux 2.2.11, i686, Built from CVS 13/Sept/99 both Apprunner & Viewer. Previously tested (circa 01/Sept/99) with M8 & M9 on Win95.

This is one of those cases where Gecko is doing the correct thing, but none of the other browsers implement this properly so it appears to be a bug in Gecko The issue is how the CSS2 'overflow' property works. The default is 'visible' which means that content that overflows should be visible. However, the parent element's box is _not_ expanded. That's why you see the overflow content being displayed, but you don't see the background color displayed in the overflow area
Thanks troy, that explains part one of the bug with the <pre> box, but it does not explain why the animated background image at the bottom of the page should sometimes redraw statically, and sometimes not redraw. Should this bug be-reopened?
File a separate bug for that problem, please. That probably isn't a layout bug, and it's best to have only one problem per bug report. Go ahead and assign the new bug to me, I'll reassign it
Based on Troy's comments, marking as verified invalid.
