Words in html document jump on each other making it impossible to read them. The
words that are enclosed in <i>, <b>, <a> and other formatting blocks at the end
of line (where word-wrapping takes action) are painted on top of each other.
This makes reading documentation very difficult :/.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open this page: http://03bar.ktu.lt/bugzilla.html
2. Scale your mozilla window down slowly... The shorter word jumps to other
line. Then, when it seems like the longer should jump to the other line too, the
shorter word comes back, on top of the longer one...
3. Scale mozilla window up again. It stays corrupted.
4. Hit 'refresh'. Repeat operation from step 2.

Actual Results:  Two words paint in one place, making it impossible to read them.

Expected Results:  Both words should be wrapped to next line.

Minimal (incomplete) html file to reproduce this bug:

Fill space, fill space, fill space, fill space, fill enough space.
<em>Verylongword shorter</em>

This bug works in both quirks and standard layout modes (whatever this means), i
have tested it with and without the suggested doctype declarations.

Likely a dupe of bug 148399; WFM in a recent build. Please try a nightly build 
or the upcoming beta.

WFM BuildID 2002071504/win2000. Your build is already one month old. Please use
a more recent build.

Marius, it seems you are using 1.1a release (really old). Please download and
test a newer build from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest. If it
works then mark this bug as worksforme.
