User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Minimum cell width in table is not computed correctly when cell contains <span style="white-space: nowrap">. This should either be ignored (as of CSS 2.0, white-space allowed on block elements only) or it should be rendered (as of CSS 2.1, allowed on all elements). This behaviour is in-between. The following refers to the attached test case: To see the error the window must be smaller than the maximum table width, i.e. the browser must start squeezing the tables. In the upper and middle table the first name extends over the next columns also, due to <span style="white-space: nowrap">. The minimum computed cell width is only the length of the span region and does not include the rest of the word as would be necessary. For comparison the lower table has the same content as the upper table, only style="white-space: nowrap" is changed to style="font-style: italic". Now the rendering is okay. This is tested just to make sure the white-space property really caused the error. Tested with Mozilla (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624) and Firebird (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7). Same on WindowsXP. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. load the test case 2. 3.
Bug 191699 is about supporting 'white-space' on inlines. It's possible that the implementation is only partially complete, see that bug for more details.

I can reproduce bug with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20061225 BonEcho/18.104.22.168
I have been responsible for investigating this bug and creating a workaround for it over at the English Wikipedia. This is the same bug as [[Bug 278891]] and probably very closely related to [[Bug 101565]] and many of the other bugs that turn up when I search for "nowrap" here. Since it might be of help, here is our how-to guide about it at Wikipedia and a link to more info about it at the talk page: * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Line_break_handling#Nowraplinks_shortcomings * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Line_break_handling#Firefox_bug Note, that guide is about handling line wrapping in general but those two links are directly to the sections about this Firefox bug. The bug is still visible on my Firefox 22.214.171.124 on a WinME. ( Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20071025 Firefox/188.8.131.52 ) .../David
I think this is fixed in Firefox 3 / Gecko 1.9. (But note that the testcase changed behavior in another way, since we now allow breaks after "-" characters when they're not inside white-space:nowrap.)
Works for me in Linux nightly 2008-02-22-04-trunk; should also work in Firefox 3 betas.
