Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/125.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/125.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a1) Gecko/20040520

In my website, http://scott.eeltank.com/, two columns of text should appear underneath the welcome 
text ("life & news blog" in the left column, "front page rant" in the right).  These columns are created 
with div tags (style="float:left;width:48%;"; style="float:right;width:48%;").

Sometimes, Mozilla and Firefox on both Mac and Windows platforms incorrectly display the left column 
at full-width (100%) with the right column underneath it also at full width, rather than putting the two 
side-by-side.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the website, http://scott.eeltank.com/
2. If it loads correctly, click reload.
3. Usually on the first try or after 1 or 2 reloads, it will appear incorrectly.
Actual Results:  
On some reloads (and often on the initial page load) the columns display incorrectly.

Expected Results:  
The two columns should appear side-by-side.
Summary: side-by-side (columnar) floating divs sometimes don't appear side-by-side → {inc}side-by-side (columnar) floating divs sometimes don't appear side-by-side

Beautiful!  The new Firefox 0.9 and Mozilla 1.7 products fix it.
