1. Remove .mozilla directory and run ./mozilla-apprunner. 2. Finish creating the profile. 3. When the initial page of www.mozilla.org loads, select "View->Sidebar" to remove the sidebar from the display. At this point, the sidebar disappears correctly, but the contents of the window are only shifted over to the left leaving an ugly blank area rather than reflowing the current page to adjust for the new increase in width.
I can't reproduce this, can you tell me what build you are using? When I close the sidebar via View | Sidebar, the page reflows correctly on my Linux machine. I am using a build from 100108
This is on RedHat 6.0. The Build ID displayed in the corner of the Mozilla window is 1999082316 and I'd performed a cvs update and rebuilt the entire src tree earlier that day.
Actually, to clarify a little more, I'd performed a cvs update on 10/8/99 and rebuilt my tree using that.
I will leave this up to slamm, can't reproduce using 10/11 build.
I did another cvs update and clobber build and am still having it occur, but not every time, just most. It's most visible when I open the browser window very large (1500x1100 or more) before closing the sidebar. What I'm seeing is when I select View->Sidebar-- 1. The contents of the sidebar panel between "My Panels" and "Alerts" disappears, but the blue "My Panels" bar and the "Alerts" bar and below remain in place. 2. The main window reflows to adjust for the increase in size once the sidebar will be gone ending up cutting off part of the right edge of the page. 3. The rest of the sidebar disappears. 4. The contents of the web page are shifted over to the left, leaving a blank grey background area to the right.

I do not see this bug anymore. There is a new one that the sidebar's iframe does not disappear, but we have another bug for that.
jdm, please re-open if you still see this
