Description Stewart M. Clamen 2005-04-27 11:56:15 PDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

This page renders fine on the screen, but in Print Preview (and when printed)
lines are dropped.  It seems to be related to the height of the CAPTION. 
Problem doesn't appear when there is no CAPTION.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Exhibits same behaviour under Windows XP and Linux (Firefox 1.0.3)

Please expalin the problem with specific details. Which lines are getting
dropped on the testpage.
Comment 2 Eugene Kim 2005-04-28 12:51:30 PDT
CAPTION is deprecated (as per And what do you mean by "lines are dropped"?
Comment 3 Stewart M. Clamen 2005-04-28 13:15:46 PDT
A number of lines (proportional to the height of the caption) are not displayed
in the Print Preview or on the printed pages, at the page break.  (Which lines
depends on your paper and font size.)

Comment 4 Stewart M. Clamen 2005-04-28 13:24:09 PDT
With font-size 16px, Print Preview (scale: shrink to fit , Portrait Mode,
margins all set to 0.5", standard headers and footers), the 


do not appear. (Page one ending with "25" and page two beginning with "30")
Comment 5 Redmond English 2005-04-28 14:03:45 PDT
I am also having exactly the same problem with firefox, versions:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414

In response to post #2, as far as I can tell CAPTION is not deprecated; 
 - not in HTML 4.0.1

 - nor in XHTML1

 - nor in XHTML2

Yeah Chris left a XXX comment where to do it ;-). But I dont know how to pull
correctly the previously pushed children. So the patch works decent on the
first page, but does not print anything on the second. I believe one needs to
unsplit the table frame before the resize. But I have really no idea how this
is done.
Comment 8 Stewart M. Clamen 2005-12-01 07:41:11 PST
Verified that the problem persists in the Firefox 1.5 distro

+        if ((NS_SIDE_TOP  == captionSide) || (NS_SIDE_BOTTOM != captionSide)) {

This should just be NS_SIDE_TOP == captionSide, right?

Is this just a workaround?

Attaching testcase to the bug, in case the url becomes 404/disappears/etc.
Comment 14 Bernd 2006-12-16 23:28:44 PST
fixed by the reflow branch
Comment 15 Bernd 2008-08-03 07:25:31 PDT
this is again broken, I was about to create a reftest for it when I noticed it.
Comment 16 Aaron Andersen 2011-01-21 16:03:33 PST
Looks like this is still broken in 4.0b9. I'm surprised at the low interest in this bug--I'd think printing tables with captions would be a somewhat common thing.
Comment 17 Bernd 2011-07-30 02:47:50 PDT
this got probably fixed by bug 642088
Comment 18 Bernd 2011-08-07 23:03:25 PDT
marking as fixed, please reopen if you see this with a current nightly
Comment 19 :aceman 2011-08-08 09:52:12 PDT
Can confirm fix on
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:8.0a1) Gecko/20110804 Firefox/8.0a1 ID:20110804030732

while it is still a problem on today's Aurora 7 (mentioned just to show difference).
