Visiting several projects in mozdev.org, the middle column renders below the
lowest part of the left column (though remaining in the middle column) when you
click on the middle column's "resources" navigation on top. (This navigation
usually has "Home Mailing List Installation Source Code Members
Screenshots" links). So it is like the left column becomes its own row. It
will bounce back up if you resize or refresh the browser. Same error is in the
20040921 Firfox trunk nightly. However, these pages will render propperly in
Linux/Mozilla 1.7.1, & had before in my Mozilla 1.7beta on Win98se.
Looking at the HTML code, the mozdev pages look like a mish-mash of CSS columns
& tables. The said "project-navigation" is contained in a table, which in turn
is in <div id="main-content">. I checked several CSS 3-column examples at
http://css-discuss.incutio.com/?page=ThreeColumnLayouts & I am unable to repeat
the same mozdev rendering error.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit http://vssdoclinks.mozdev.org/
2. click on a link in "resources" navigation on top
3. middle column will drop
4. refresh/resize, midlle will return to the top
render the middle column flush to the top

I´m duping this to bug 260963 as I´ve commented there a lot of numbers.

major, as it is a highly visible regression.

minimal testcase made from http://www.mozdev.org/logs/top50.html
3 divs with visible borders to show what is going on.
I´m reopening this bug, as Bug 260963 is wfm now.
Simple testcase attached:
Maybe it is related to Bug 260442, but I can´t test, as I can´t test on linux
and don´t have a slashdot account.
Confirming based on testcase
Bug 260963 comment 7 was showing a regression timeframe between BuildID
2004091105 working and BuildID 2004091306 broken
maybe Bug 257216?
Fix sundry block issues for columns. In particular, remove overflowing
floats from the space manager before we compute the space manager's XMost and
YMost to include in the block size. r+sr=dbaron"

This exposed some confusion about whether nsLineBox::mBreakType means break
*before* the line or *after* the line. Turns out it's *before* the line for
blocks and *after* the line for inlines. I added new methods in nsLineBox.h to
make this explicit and changed the relevant code in nsBlockFrame to explicitly
look for before or after breaking. This fixed the bug here.
thanks roc, for the fast action
requesting blocking 1.8a4
would be nice if mozdev.org won´t show this bug with 1.8a4
thanks for looking into this (I'm the original bug-submitter).
"would be nice if mozdev.org won´t show this bug with 1.8a4"
IMHO, I'm glad it was caught early, as this bug may
have grown worse in time. But it is funny I first noticed
it on a moz site :)
I see this on Linux also. www.xulplanet.com is badly affected, too.
I assume fixing this bug would also fix some others from the list of Bug 261196,
Bug 261153 if you click a link, move a link
Bug 260442 Form elements jump when form buttons pressed ( posting at slashdot!)

Yes, they all seem related, since I get the same behavor at mozdev.org
