I see this only with Mozilla trunk builds (like 2004091306). It works as aspected (without such a large gap) with Firefox 0.10/1.0PR or 0.9.3, Mozilla 1.7.3, Netscape 7.2. So I guess it is not the code but Mozilla. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Actual Results: Large gap. Expected Results: No large gap, correct layout. Similiar thing was before for the old version of the frontpage on website-beta.mozilla.org. So I guess some other pages are still affected.
I believe that this was caused by the fix for bug 148994 and the current display is correct. Opera 7.5 displays it just the same as the trunk builds, with "Primary mirrors" cleared below the navigation bar.
Yep. The CSS on this page is just buggy. Over to the right product.

Summary: Layout problems on www.mozilla.org/mirrors.html, large gap (Mozilla trunk only) → Layout problems on www.mozilla.org/mirrors.html
Created attachment 159094 [details] /mirrors.html (file, not patch) This patch follows the style and markup guide more closely and probably gives a more compact layout that will work. It doesn't need extra styles anymore.
We might want to do something with the ID values, they are not valid at the moment. Something like 'country.ext'?
Utah should be in TH, not TD. fantasai, any further suggestions for this document?
I'm not keen on the wholesale redesign of the structure of the content. Can we just fix the issue this bug is addressing, namely the big gap at the top?
I looked into this further and found it's a bug in the new template, not my code. My code correctly uses and clears some floats. The new template, on the other hand, floats the nav bar to the left but fails to float the main content container, so any content that clears floats clears the navbar float as well. The new template should float the main content container so content that clears floats does so only within the container and doesn't clear the nav bar float. Morphing the bug accordingly.
Summary: Layout problems on www.mozilla.org/mirrors.html → main content container should float to prevent float-clearing content from clearing the nav bar float
Created attachment 159147 [details] [diff] [review] patch This fixes mirrors.html. It needs some cross-browser testing. I might try to get in a few other changes I want to make before I do said testing.
The goal here is to just have mainContent be a new block reflow context, right? Wouldn't relatively positioning it with zero offsets have that effect?
Not according to http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/CR-CSS21-20040225/visuren.html#q15

Thanks a lot for breaking my part of the website once again within three weeks. I really appreciate fixing bugs that other people introduce without telling me :-( It might be a totally new concept to some people, but there are still parts of www.mozilla.org, which are well maintained and where people would like to be informed beforehand, if someone touches code, which might or does break their markup. It's a lot of fun, when your hear via the calendar newsgroup that your website is broken and you have to spend nearly an hour on doctor.mozilla.org to fix the site immediately :-(((
This shouldn't have broken anything that wasn't hand-wrapped, and if you're adding new hand-wrapped pages, you should expect them to break unless I know about them.
Please reopen, the large gap is back again. Btw. the OSL logo isn't entirely inside the sponsors box. I much prefer how this page looks in IE.
Yeah, reopening. The patch from this bug was backed out because it broke IE 5.5, apparently..

Simply changing "clear: both;" to "float: right;" in .key-point:after fixed one issue in update.m.o pages.
The URL seems now to work. Looks the same in Mozilla 1.8a5 and in FF 1.0. Is it fixed?
