Some Webpages are shown with huge empty space between Textblocks. I noticed that sometimes at amazon.com (extended search) and on some more pages. To give you an example : http://dict.leo.org/?lang=de You can see the head of the page, then "some miles" nothing. If the Scrollbar is centered, you get the main text and at the bottom of the page you can find the rest. This bug persists for some versions now. I tried using Proxies and direct connections but the problem remains. I also tried Mozilla on several systems, but without success. IE 5.x and Netscape 4.7x handle the given example-page correct.

Patricio, which build are you using? This is almost certainly a bug in layout of <hr> elements which has been fixed for a while....
Hello, here are some informations your requested : ------------------------------------------- Mozilla 1.0 Release Candidate 1 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417 I'm not sure with witch version I noticed this problem for the first time. Let it be 0.9.7 or so.
I can confirm that behaviour with build 2002051006 on windows 2000 with this link: http://www.tomshardware.de/mainboard/02q2/020515/p4x333-03.html The same page is rendered correctly with build 2002051009 on Linux. I have seen this behaviour several times with other pages - there must be a Bug# for this already, but I can't find another one. I can remove the space through choosing another font: the space appears with: Fonts for: Western Propotional: Sans Serif Size 16 Serif: Times New Roman Sans-serif: Arial Cursive: Comic Sans MS Fantasy: Allegro BT Monospace: Courier New Size 13 Minimum Font Size: None Allow documents to use other fonts: true Display resolution: 72 dpi the space disappears when I select font size 15 for the propotional size.
I experience this empty-Space-bug, too. And the amount of pages where it appears is increasing! I've got Win2000 and now Mozilla 1.0 build 2002053012, but already experienced it with a Mozilla 0.9.9 My actual example is www.lycos.de: you should just see the search-menu. then you have to scroll miles and miles to get to the login-part of the site. I also experienced it on other sites and as I said, the number is increasing. I think this is a major bug, because of the frequency and it's disturbance. (In explorer 5.something, display is correct.) If someone's interested in the bug, I can search for the other web-sites I surfed, where the huge empty space appears. Göran.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016 Win2k (Linux users seem unaffected) I tore http://dict.leo.org/?lang=de down to this: http://www.2of3.com/mozilla/bug01.html still results in an endless spacer. If I edit the HTML-file and remove ANYthing (align=center, etc.) the file returns to its normal layout.
I have a huge gap in one of my pages as well (http://pictures.juergenebert.de/). However, I did not use hr at all and the page is valid XHTML.
Also in my case there is no gap if Mozilla is rendering from the cache and the gap vanishes if one resizes the browser window. I had this problem with 1.0 and I have it now with 1.2.1.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212 Tested again with mozilla 1.3a and both examples in #8 are behaving correctly now! If I switch back to 1.2.1 or older: huge endless gap. maybe someone can confirm this? to #9: your "empty space"-problem seems different as it covers only 1-2 screens. all other examples above resulted in the same endless gap, ranging over thousands of screens.
Well, I also cannot reproduce this with Mozilla 1.2.1 on Win95... However, I know I also saw this from time to time. But maybe this can help: Bug 187676 sounds similar and hints that the character encoding might have to do with it. And if I look at this bug, bug 187676 and similar bug 130675 then I see there are conspicuously many people and websites from Sweden, Finland and Germany involved - with non-US encoding used?
