User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1 As you can see in the provided URL, the input "Message" text box renders about half the expected width. I provided the capture because a free account is required to get to the actual page which exhibits the problem. I have included the specific URL in the "steps to reproduce" section. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Register for a free account at http://www.dpreview.com/forums/register.asp (sorry, this is the only site I've had this problem with). 2. Go to http://www.dpreview.com/forums/message.asp?forum=1018 (you will be asked to log in using the information in step 1) Alternatively, you can go to any forum and try to post a message. (You won't actually have to post anything to see the problem.) Actual Results: Input textbox renders too narrow (about half of expected width). Expected Results: Text window should be as wide as undo/cancel buttons, the width of the entire panel. The page in question renders correctly in IE6. I believe it renders *in*correctly in Mozilla 1.4, so I don't think this bug is specific to Firebird/Mozilla.
Step #2 in the "Steps to Reproduce" section contains an invalid URL. The page to which I provided a URL no longer exists (the site was slightly reorganized). Of course the original problem I described occurs when posting to ANY forum on dpreview.com, so instead pick a forum from http://www.dpreview.com/forums/ and follow the "New Message" link. You will be asked to login and taken to the "New Message" page, which is where the problem will be apparent. Let me repeat that you won't actually have to post a message; the problem just happens to consistently appear on this page. --Derek
Derek, could you save the page and post the HTML here, so that there's no need to register?
I have saved the page in question in IE6 and Firebird 0.7 and posted them at http://www.grog.net/derek/bug_215099.zip (100KB). As expected, the page saved in Firebird renders incorrectly when opened in Firebird. Also as expected, the page saved in IE renders correctly when opened in IE. What surprises me is that the page saved in Firebird renders incorrectly when opened in either browsers.
Go to the following site and you will see the textbox is half the size it should be (and is in Internet Explorer). http://www.pbnation.com/newthread.php?s=&action=newthread&forumid=13
The source says textarea name="message" rows="20" cols="40" wrap="virtual" tabindex="2" But it is only 34 characters wide. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 33654 ***
