Mozilla renders frameset incorrectly

Subject: Mozilla Can't Eat Frames!

I downloaded the latest binary for Nov 8th, 1999
for windows 98.

I have a site that does a very complicated frameset that I thought you
might want to use to test your frames with Netscape 5. I tested the latest
binary and it didn't work correctly on this frameset.

It is 4 frames surrounding an inner frame. I had some problems with Netscape 4.

1. Netscape and IE have a 1 pixal difference.

2. A table that has cells and is set to 100% will not resize (height) if
there is a graphic in the last cell.

3. Netscape is a lot harder to get frames to seamlessly meet up correctly.

Hopefully Netscape 5 won't have these problems.

Scroll bars appear and the frameset does not show correctly when displayed.

M10 is over, M11 is branching as I write, so this bug will have to be M12 at the

This bug appears on Linux as well as Windows, so marking platform ALL

The scrollbars bug is a dup of 14827
The frame that does not display is the main frame.  This may not even be a
frameset issue as this page does not display on it's own either:

Viewing the page in Nav I get Macromedia Flash.  I'm not sure what the status of
our support for the flash plugin is yet, so I'm CC'ing Andre, the plugins guru.
I do not see any problems with playing macromedia content. In case of separate
main frame it keeps reloading but this is known parser issue, Harish is on it.
On the original URL everything looks fine from the plugin standpoint.
After careful consideration, I've decided that I probably won't get this bug in
for M12.  Currently I have nearly 50 bugs scheduled for M13, so there is a
possibility that this bug may need to be moved out farther still.
I see a blank window with the word "embed" in it, but no plugin.  Andre, how do
I install plugins for Seamonkey?  Thanks!
On Windows just put it into plugins dir which should sit next to mozilla.exe

Awesome.  I just tried it and this site works for me.  Thanks Andre.
Oh, and the scrollbars problem is bug 14827.
