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 When displayed with IE 5.0 and above, the http://www.msn.com web page displays the bullets in the "Also on MSN" portion of the page are offset by about 3/16" from their left margin. In Firebird, Mozilla, and Netscape 7.1 (I know you are not responsible for Netscape...), the bullets are either flush with the left margin (of the column they are in) or are only offset about 1/16". This causes the page to display strangely. Also, in the "Driveaway Vacations" (the picture with test to the right of it, just to the right of "Also on MSN", Firebird/Mozilla/Netscape display the text to the right starting at the bottom, rather than the top. Again, this is not a fatal flaw, just causes strange behavior. Since IE now (regretfully) controls about 90-95% of the browser market, compatibility with it should be important as they are now the defacto standard... as Netscape was a few years ago. Thanks for the great product! Sincerely, Scott Surbrook Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load the msn.com home page. 2. Look at the "Also on MSN" section and the "MSNBC News" sections. 3. They are not aligned correctly. 4. Look at the picture to the right of "Also on MSN". 5. The text is not aligned/placed correctly. Actual Results: Not sure what else I should explain... Expected Results: Displayed the page like IE 5.0 and later does. It is the defacto standard.
Mozilla and Firebird render the page the same, so this is not a Firebird bug. The bullet margins are off because they are applying a -30px margin-left to the ULs. This looks OK in IE because IE applies a default 40px left margin to begin with. Mozilla applies zero margin and uses padding-left to indent, so in Mozilla you see a mix of 40px padding-left minus the -30px margin-left. If they would just define margin and padding in the CSS, it could work cross-browser just fine. And I don't see anything in the code that would require the text to start at the top of the image in question. The code has a <span class="floatleft"> suggesting that they wanted the image floating left, but I can't find any float styling for it in the actual CSS files. I would consider this a TE bug.
they look comparable in yesterdays mozilla 1.7 on winxp and msie6
