Overview Description: In a page with a series of DIV elements that have overflow: auto; and float: left; style settings, clicking scrollbar arrows on the DIV elements causes the elements to jump around, disappear, and reappear. Steps to Reproduce: 1) Load the test case that will be attached. 2) Click the down arrow on the leftmost DIVs scrollbar. 3) Watch the fireworks. Actual Results: The right most two DIVs disappear and the left DIV moves downward. Expected Results: The DIV content scrolls up. Build Date & Platform Bug Found: Linux 2000-02-14-09 Additional Builds and Platforms Tested On: none Additional Information: Clicking on where the scrollbars for the other DIV elements were produces more interesting effects (elements reappear and disappear alternately, etc.). Could be related to bug 28090 which I just filed on a similar test case (I was experiencing both problems on the actual page I am working on). That bug was filed under compositor because the DIVs were in the correct location, just not drawn correctly. This bug is filed under layout because the DIVs move around. Enabling viewmanager2 does not fix this bug.
Eric, there are a couple of issues here As far as things moving around, that's because the block code doesn't do a particularly good job of computing where the floater will be in advance or reflowing it, and so it ends up moving it twice and things flicker. I already have bug #22684 for that problem The other issue is the fact that clicking on the scrollbar causes a reflow. I really think we need to fix this, so we don't do a reflow. Maybe in an ideal world that would be okay, but with the way things work today it just isn't efficient

This is now fixed the example does not jump. As for reflowing this is because of the style rules for buttons. This will actually happen with html buttons as well. Its because their content areas move when clicked on. This affect is achieved by removing right and bottom padding and adding it to the top and left when depressed. The style system thinks a reflow is needed, which my be true because the content area could have view and that view my need to be repositioned.
