To be more specific, the frame (?) displaying the current events above the month view kept resizing from about 1/4-in to 1-in and back. The month view, of course, kept rescaling to match. REAL UGLY! I was about to file this bug as just a calendar problem, when I happened to visit an unrelated site <http://cygwin.com/faq/> that also uses frames (Quirks Mode). Curiously, the upper frame was tiny compared to the lower frame - even thought all the meat was in the upper with just a few related links showing in the lower frame. I just grabbed the frame-divider and dragged it down to something more reasonable - and doing so made "the penny drop." I opened the calendar and played bat-the-gopher with the moving frame divider until I could grab it and pull it down about an inch. VOILA! The display stabilized and I could see how big the upper frame needed to be to show what was there. Now it looks just fine. SO, here's my theory. (1) There is a layout bug affecting the way frames are sized / scaled; and (2) Calendar doess some really bad handling of whatever condition is caused by #1. I'm assuming the cyclic resizing is caused by something in Calendar because the other frame site was stable (just unsightly). Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. You must, I suspect, have an active calendar with enough holidays, etc., that the upper "current events" frame has a couple of lines of content. 2. Install Mozilla 3002-03-29-08-trunk (Win32) 3. Install Calendar-xpi Actual Results: Jumpy Display as described above. NOTE: I've classified this as Minor because the workaround is simple -- but only so if you know about it because it's not all that obvious.
Filed http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=199907 for the layout issue.

I confirm the bug (based on on duplicates and observations). The problem occurs for me when there is only one event (I finally observed it when I created a new profiles). So, only the new calendar users are affected : this is bad, really. The problem is somewhere in the code. Does somebody knowns how to determine what part of the code is executed during the constant resizing observed. I don't known how to do this with Venkmann. I found a workaround which consists in giving a minimum size to the unifinder window tree through CSS. A patch will be posted below.

Created attachment 127343 [details] [diff] [review] workaround which impose a minimum size to the tree view through CSS tested with classic theme.
Does this stop the top list from being collapsed?
It looks OK to me, checked into cvs.
