'sidebar' and 'addressbooks' fighting over space
When I open the addressbook with both the 'addressbooks' and 'sidebar' active at the left, my cpu usage runs up to 100% and the sidebar is shaking up and down really fast. I think the slider between the 'addressbooks' area and the 'sidebar' area is trying to set itself at a certain optimal position, but while doing so, triggers something (showing of scrollbar?) and gets in an infinite loop, causing the position to shift slightly up and down really fast. Mozilla does not crash or hang, and the slider (the seperator between this addressbook area and the sidebar) can be dragged up or down, causing the shaking to stop. It only happens when opening the addressbook with the sidebar in a certain position - just a bit under the last addressbook entry (see screenshot), and not when you change the position with the addressbook open. I hope I made myself clear here :) I added two screenshots, the first showing the constant redrawing, 'shaking', with the sidebar hopping up and down; and the second one, showing in which position this hmmm... 'effect' occurs. I think there's a small bug in the code that sets the geometry (and more exactly, the upper boundary) of the sidebar - but I really have no idea how to debug a condition like this. I can reproduce this any time (mozilla 1.0rc1 compiled from source on linux). I suspect this can be reproduced on at least any recent linux compilation, playing a bit with the distance of the addressbook-list and the sidebar, according to your screen resolution.
I'm not sure this shot's really useful for people without a great deal of imagination... :)
