worksforme with linux trunk build 20020925
WFM Windows XP build 20020926
From original Reporter: Re-installed mozilla, problem persisted. Rebooted Win2K, problem dissappeared. Probably should mark this one down as not (easily) reproducible.
I also encounter this problem on Windows 2000, under Mozilla 1.2b (build 2002101612). Rebooting does not seem to fix for me.
WFM with 2002122708/trunk/win2k. reporter (Kevin): can you reproduce this bug with a recent build of mozilla (for example, 1.3a)? if so, please comment again with details. if not, please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME. thanks.
I can duplicate this in 2003011604 under Win2k. (saw it on a build from a few days ago also). It's actually much, much worse at http://www.solarbuzz.com/Customer.htm
Eric: could you describe exactly what's wrong with http://www.solarbuzz.com/Customer.htm it looks ok to me with linux trunk 20030116
Well, it was similar to weather.com's problem-- staggeringly tall blank spaces (so much so that the scrollbar was essentially unusable). But I went ahead and rebooted my 2K box (hate doing that for various reasons, so held off until I needed to do so anyway) and the problem went away. Trying to think of what might be cleared by a reboot that wouldn't be cleared by a shutdown and restart... I did make sure that the Moz executable was gone after I closed it. Hmmm....
Confirming bug with 2002121215 (1.3alpha) on Windows XP. Also occurs with a nightly I downloaded earlier today, but uninstalled because of other problems. Will attach screenshot of problem.

I can see this bug Win 2000, using Mozilla 1.3a Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212
those of you who can reproduce the problem, can you produce a testcase for this? Also, what is your graphic card? And does upgrading graphic driver help?
Created attachment 123732 [details] HTML fragment of table with blank area This fragment reproduces the bug. It still reproduces for me with Mozilla 1.4b on Win2000, using an nVidia TNT2 video adapter.
the attachment seems to display fine for me (linux trunk 20030517) > table with blank area what is blank? does the whole table not show up?
Steve, can you reproduce the bug after removing every degree sign?
Created attachment 123790 [details] Absolute minimum testcase This one-row table is the absolute minimum testcase. With the degree symbol present, Mozilla computes the row height as 'infinite'. With the degree symbol removed, the row height is computed normally.
It wasn't necessary to remove ALL the degree symbols from the 5/19 testcase to get it to draw correctly. Only the one instance in the "header" had to be changed. The new 5/20/2003 attachment is the absolute minimum test case - leave the degree symbol in, and Mozilla computes the row height as essentially "infinite". Take it out, and all is well. (In the Weather.com original content, Mozilla does eventually 'give up' on that row and render the rest of the page - but you have to press the "End" key to jump to the end of the page to see it.)
Update: removing any one of the following things in the 'absolute minimum testcase' causes the row height to be calculated properly. 1. The <b> ... </b> surrounding the information in the <td> element 2. The 'align="center"' attribute on the <td> element 3. The degree symbol (Unicode 0x00B0) in the <td> element's content If all three of these things are present (bold, center aligned, degree symbol) then the calculation goes wrong.
Created attachment 123811 [details] Absolute minimum testcase
Attachment #123790 - Attachment is obsolete: true
Summary: 10-day forecast table displays mostly a tall blank area. → Table containing degree symbol (0x00B0) + other stuff has infinite height
*** Bug 203562 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
this is probably a dupe of bug 113779. Steve, Kevin or Bill: can you reproduce this bug with a recent trunk or 1.4 branch build? bug 113779 has been fixed for a while on both. 1.5a should have the fix.
Just tested it using http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/2003-08-15-09-trunk/mozilla-win32-svg-GDI-mathml.zip, and the problem no longer occurs on either my test cases or the live www.weather.com site.
> the problem no longer occurs on either my test cases good enough for me. marking dupe of "The site displays badly (lots of blank space) and scroll bar acts strangely (?)" *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 113779 ***
