2002041808 OS/2 trunk
800 X 600

To reproduce:
1-Size browser to more than 680 pixels wide
2-Open any page
3-Open in same window or tab URL indicated
4-Size browser to considerably less than 680 pixels wide
5-Execute back
6-Execute maximize
7-Execute forward
8-Execute restore

Actual behavior:
1-Image links left of their following descriptions disappear
2-Horizontal scrollbar is missing when narrower than 680 pixels

Expected behavior:
1-Image links left of their following descriptions remain
2-Horizontal scrollbar appears when narrower than 680 pixels

Notes:
Subject seems to be poor design, and lacks doctype and charset statements, but
links should appear regardless.
Attached file Cleaner testcase (obsolete) —
I added the missing closing tags, alt="", and other to make the page validate,
but when width too narrow, still no horizontal scroll, and still the images
disappear.
I cannot reproduce this with today's trunk linux nightly.  Is this OS/2-only?
I see this on Windows, but I don't need any special steps.

If I open the testcase in the browser and size it smaller, text goes off the
left and no scrollbar appears.
I recommend the "Cleaner testcase" to reproduce this.

All I had to do was open this page in a browser window and size it smaller and 
no horizontal scrollbar appeared.

Information was cut off on the left.

This was this morning Windows build - 2002041903

I don't think this is related to bug 138455, that's going on about floated box
elements, but there's not a float to be seen anywhere here.

I've made a much simpler testcase, will attach in a mo.

I see the problem too, Win98SE, 1.0 RC1 (2002041711)
Attached file simplified testcase (obsolete) —
Just view it, and make the window narrower
Text of even more reduced testcase:

<html>
<head>
<title>bug 138505 testcase</title>
</head>
<body>
<table width="600" align="right">
<tr><td>
why does this long string disappear off the left hand side of the window, without 
showing a scrollbar, when you make the window narrow?
</td></tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Removing the align="right" on the table makes everything behave more normally.
