Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load the URL 2. Compare the first objects with XUL files and the last one with HTML file Actual Results: At first seen, it's like if all XUL objects where with overflow : hidden But sometimes, when you swith to another tab or another window and come back, the text of the XUL file is shown even outside the object. Expected Results: Scrollbars for the auto and scroll properties I think that this is a regression, because with Mozilla 1.6 and Firebird 0.7 the scrollbars existed. (I don't know if I should put this bug in XP toolkit : XUL)
The fact that 'overflow' on the OBJECT or IFRAME is applied to the HTML document is really a quirk. 'overflow' on the OBJECT element controls what happens if the child elements of the OBJECT overflow, but the OBJECT doesn't really have children. It's just "the document". You really need to control this using 'overflow' *inside* the XUL document.
hmm. I take it back. I don't know what's going on here.
Well, per CSS overflow applied to a replaced element means nothing, last I checked....
No, it applies to replaced elements. http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visufx.html#propdef-overflow I think this testcase should work as Xanthor expects. I'm actually not sure how the XUL content escapes from the box in the first place...
Is this still an issue ?
The testcase has gone away.
