Test case is: <html> <body> <table style="position: absolute; top: 100px" align="center"> <tr> <td> <hr> foobar </td> </tr> </table> </body> </html> The "100px" can be replaced with any value. It has no effect on the scrollbar. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:

Created attachment 155488 [details] Screen shot showing test case in Mozilla window Just a screen shot showing the test case in a Mozilla window. Note the horizontal scroll bar along the bottom of the window.
Note that IE does not center the table in the testcase.
Neither does IE 5 on Mac OS X, Safari, or Konqueror.
Note that the problem can be reproduced after changing the test case a little to get around the numerous browsers that seem compelled to not center the table: <table style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; position: absolute; top: 100px"> This will still produce a spurious horizontal scroll bar regardless of the actual size of the Mozilla window.
And removal of position: absolute; makes the scrollbar go away.
Also reproduced with Mozilla on MacOS X. Changing hardware and OS to All.
OS: Linux → All
Hardware: PC → All
Created attachment 161492 [details] testcase minimal testcase (based on reporter's, minus <hr> and top:100px).
Confirming. Couldn't find a duplicate, despite extensive search. This is NOT a duplicate of bug 252771 (which is fixed on the trunk; this one isn't). Also apparently NOT a duplicate of bug 139155 (which requires a <br>). Also note that either of "margin-left:auto" and "margin-right:auto" in the testcase can be removed (causing the text to be left- or right-justified, not centered), and the scrollbar will still be there.

As far as I can see, the bug is no longer present. The table is taken out of normal flow and its top and left positions are auto. Margin-left and margin-right are computed as 0px (as reported by DOM inspector) in Seamonkey 1.5a rv:1.9a3 build 2007021310 under XP Pro SP2. CSS 2.1, Section 10.3 10.3 Calculating widths and margins "The values of an element's 'margin-left', 'margin-right' properties as used for layout depend on the type of box generated and on each other." http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-CSS21-20061106/visudet.html#Computing_widths_and_margins Section 10.3.7 Absolutely positioned, non-replaced elements "If all three of 'left', 'width', and 'right' are 'auto': First set any 'auto' values for 'margin-left' and 'margin-right' to 0." http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-CSS21-20061106/visudet.html#abs-non-replaced-width which is the case here, in attachment 161492 [details] Am I wrong? Did I miss something? WORKSFORME
Yeah, this got fixed by the reflow branch landing.
