Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0 (Debian package 1.0-2)

text in part of a table gets distorted by the context menu if the user does not
select one of the options, but instead clicks on a 'blank' part of the page that
is not a url. If you refresh the page or put focus on any other application the
page is no longer distorted. I've tried this out on tonights build and I can
still reproduce the problem.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.atda31.dsl.pipex.com/test.html
2. right click on "Test" LINK on the top-left (without doing anything else yet)
3. left click anywhere on the background of the page
4. The "|" and bottom right corner of the top border should be distorted

Could you attach an even more limited testcase to the bug instead of one on a
server? Or are the colors really needed for the bug to appear? Make the testcase
as limited as possible.

Could you be more specific about your window manager and skins.

And to confirm:
1. Open page
2. Right click on the first (most left) link
3. Click _anywhere_ except the menu

html with bug

looks like "table {margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;}"
is where the problem is, if i use the shorthand of "table {margin: auto;}" I
can no longer reproduce the problem

Improved testcase

"margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" is not the same as "margin:auto"

Attached improved testcase with different setups and correct HTML 4.01 strict.
How are your results with this one. WFM still.
