Confirming and setting OS->All (I see this on 1.4final, W2k). -> Layout:View Rendering. I think this is essentially a duplicate of bug 170011, but I'll let someone with better CSS-fu confirm that. Attaching a (much!) simplified testcase.

Created attachment 128412 [details] Simplified testcase In this testcase, the BODY has overflow:auto, which means it should provide scrollbars to view it's contained content. However, the IMG within the BODY is absolutely positioned, so the BODY is not the containing block for the IMG. The result (which you can verify with the DOM inspector) is that the BODY is shrunk to essentially nothing, the IMG is placed correctly, but there's no way to scroll to it. See also bug 170011 comment 7.
regression, since this works in 1.3.

re: comment 2, "there's no way to scroll to it" I should really read comments before posting them. There's no problem scrolling around the view; it's just that the IMG appears to be clipped to the body.

Still a problem in 1.5 and Firebird 0.7 on Windows 2000. The very small page that I have included below displays nothing. And I'd agree that it looks very much like bug 170011. <html> <body style="overflow:auto;"> <div style="position:absolute;">aaa</div> </body> </html>
I'm now fairly convinced that this is caused by bug 225811 (which has a fix).
Depends on: 225811
Worksforme in a current build.... Marking duplicate based on that. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 225811 ***
