Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.visit http://greencanteen.co.uk/sk/home.html 2.hover over the menu items (one, two, three, four, five) 3.the popup should be 20% of the table the menu is in Actual Results: the menu spans the current width of the page (from it's set origin), adding that to the overall page width Expected Results: displayed the div as 100% of the table cell it is contained in, and not 100% of the whole page this is the only website i have seen the problem on, i made it myself and feel quite confident that i know what is happening in the code. understandably, browsers are differnt, but with the cahnge from no support in mozilla to this limited support, i imagined it was still a work in progress.
Created attachment 163263 [details] testcase You have an absolutely positioned element with a width of 100%. Since it's absolutely positioned, it is not constrained by the 20% width of the surrounding DIV. See http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#containing-block-details This rendering is correct. Bug is invalid.

rescued from the mailbox that catches our bounces: Date: Mon, 25 Oct 2004 10:27:35 +0100 From: Tony Palmer <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: Re: [Bug 265905] the websites menu displays incorrectly i don't know if i can reply to this, but i will anyway. you reached the same conclusions as i did initially. although i do not understand why (on another page which i did not seem relevant enough to also specify http://greencanteen.co.uk/sk/profiles.html where an non absolute DIV pushes text outside of it's containing cell. the absolute position would seem to be rendered correctly in firefox, but the dramatic change in 2 already well grounded browsers would make me still suggest otherwise, especially when no support was previously offered (the pops didn't even work in firefox0.9) sorry to bother you with this yours warmingly tony
