The page at http://www.scotsman19.net/chatterblock/cb_chatLog.php?show=20 is not
being rendered correctly.  The instruction line should be displayed in smaller
case text at the top of the frame.  The remainder of the items which are
displayed to the left should fall below the instruction line and fill the frame
from left to right, rather than just filling the right half of the frame and
being all scrunched up.  I have verified this on other websites as well using
the same theme configuration.

Reproducible: Always

Nothing crashed, the page just displays wrong.  It is not being rendered
correctly in this version of Mozilla.  The problem doesn't occur with earlier
versions Mozilla.

the page has this:
<table>
<tr>
<td>stuff</td>...<td>stuff</td>
<form>Click on Date...
</tr>

Mozilla sees the text "Click on Date..." (which is invalid) and puts the text
outside the table (to the left).  I think you were expecting the text to go
above the table, but the actual behavior is not defined.  Putting anything in a
table, but not inside a <td></td> pair is not allowed (although the <form>
should work IIRC).  

marking INVALID - this is not a Mozilla bug

Scott: can you fix this problem on your end?  if not, you can reopen and send
this to Tech Evangelism (change the "Product")
