In the page at the above-mentioned URL, when it renders, it seems to place a
huge section of blank space in the middle of the page, causing a tremendous
amount of scrolling needed to get to the bottom half.  The break occurs right
after the words, "- 2 mins, 16x9, DD 2.0), Bag End Set."

I have seen this in other websites, including when browsing
through my email, and also at, when browsing a forum.  Perhaps
many tables together can cause this?  I also noticed that if I increase and then
decrease text zoom, the problem goes away, but reappears when I refresh.

I completely uninstalled Mozilla and removed my profile and all remaining
Mozilla directories, then reinstalled 1.2b and the problem was still there.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Mozilla
2.Enter and Navigate to URL:

Actual Results:  
The page loads with a tremendous blank space stuck in the middle of it.

Expected Results:  
The page should load correctly.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021018 luck.  Still appears broken.  I'm using WinXP SP1 if that helps, too.

Ok...I've narrowed it down a little bit.

In Preferences>Appearances>Fonts, I have the following set:
Proportional: Sans Serif Size: 14
Monospace: Courier New Size: 14

If I change the size of the Proportional font to size 16, it appears just fine.
 However, if I change it back to 14, everything gets messed up again.

In addition, if I have the size set at 16, then change the text zoom to 90%
while I have that page open, everything appears fine.  But if I then refresh, it
appears wrong again.

Hope that helps.

Ok...this seems to work fine now...I'm not really sure what changed.  We'll see
if it occurs again when 1.2 final comes out.
