When hovering over links on right, long Anchor tag "titles" are truncated and display line breaks as squares
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 In the home page at http://www.rs25.com there are several boxes down the right column. If you hover over the title, the Anchor tag's "title" attribute will display a short description of the content of the topic. In IE all of the content is correctly displayed, including line breaks, and it will often be more than one line high. In FireFox, only one line is displayed, to about 30-50 characters (even if there are more) and line breaks are displayed as little black squares. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to www.rs25.com 2. Hover your mouse over any of the links on the right column of recent topics 3. View the pop-up title description. 4. Repeat with Internet Explorer 6.x and you'll see it displays the complete pop-up title description, which is much longer and formatted properly. Actual Results: In my example, I hovered over a link with FireFox and it said: ---------------- Hi All  (black squares) we finished our initial dyno runs <snip> you can check out the... ---------------- With Internet Explorer it does this: ---------------- Hi All, We finished out initial dyno runs <snip> check out all the information on our web site ... Last post by Ampsarus on Today at 12:51pm ---------------- Expected Results: The software should display all of the content that is specified in the HTML "A" tag for the hyperlink, and process the <br> as a line break, not display little black boxes.

This is almost certainly a dup of a lengthy bug on ALT and/or TITLE attributes. To the best of my knowledge, Firefox is consistent with the standards here, and I bet that this is a WONTFIX; sorry. Kindly note that I get this assertion on your page: ###!!! ASSERTION: this doesn't do anything: 'NS_UNCONSTRAINEDSIZE != aReflowState.availableWidth', file ../../../../../../src/layout/html/table/src/nsTableFrame.cpp, line 1957 Break: at file ../../../../../../src/layout/html/table/src/nsTableFrame.cpp, line 1957 (It is line 1962 on lxr)
