reloading the page seems to fix the problem.

3.

Actual Results:  
Rendering problem as shown in screendump

I did not experience the layout/rendering problem you mention under Mozilla
1.8a3 build 2004081308 under XP Pro SP1a.

Such rendering problem is often related to nested tables (or deeply nested
elements) and over-constrained tables.
The pages uses undefined elements
<leaderboard>, <contentbanner>, <MARKT>, <sales>, <heiseadvert>, <skyscraper>,
<HEISETEXT>, <bottom>, etc 
in a document without doctype declaration too. Maybe this isn't related as
unrecognized elements should be rendered as block-level elements. Nevertheless,
by itselves, they contribute to make the document tree more deep therefore more
complex (and longer) to parse and render.

I still see the problem, even after upgrading to Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux
i586; en-US; rv:1.8a3) Gecko/20040817

David: what this bug needs is a testcase -- minimal HTML that exhibits the bug.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

David, this bug has been inactive for a long time and, over here, there is nothing more we can do.

My guess is that this is a painting/re-flowing/re-drawing issue that occurs in long tables. There are good chances such bug may have been fixed or confirmed in other bugs. The fact that heise.de uses invalid markup (such as <leaderboard>, <contentbanner>, <markt>, <sales>, <heiseadvert>, <skyscraper>) along with *many* markup errors does not help.

Just today, I checked http://www.heise.de/ webpage with Firefox 1.5.0.1 rv:1.8.0.1 build 20060111 and Mozilla Seamonkey 1.5a rv:1.9a1 build 2006031809 under XP Pro SP2 and there was no painting problem.

If you want heise.de to make sure it can avoid its webpages of these layout/rendering problems in Firefox and Mozilla, contact them at:

kontakt (at) heise.de with subject line set to heise online

and let them know about their markup errors:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.heise.de%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&verbose=1

and invite heise.de to use tools like HTML Tidy+Validator (v. 0.79) :

http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/index.html

German version (v. 0.73/0.77) but not the latest recent one:
