Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

I signed up for an exam which according to the calendar on Prometric's website,
let me select Saturday the 20th of 2005. Well, the 20th is a Friday, and I did
not realize this until I showed up on Saturday to take the exam only to be told
I was out of $125 for missing it the prior day. The calendar's days are not
aligned correctly using Firefox, but the problem is non-existant using Internet
Explorer. Perhaps Prometric doesn't care how their site looks outside of IE? Or
perhaps this is really a Firefox bug? Either way, now I'm out of $125 for zero
services rendered.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log onto Prometric.com
2. Click Test Takers to advance to the scheduling section
3. Attempting to schedule and exam draws a calendar with the days in the wrong
alignment.

Actual Results:  
A calendar used to select the test date appears wrong. The days, listed
horizontally by letter, do not align with the correct DATE of the month.

Expected Results:  
The days in the calendar should align with the date of the month.

Reporter,

Could you create a testcase for this misalignment by attaching the calendar code
from the webpage (so we don't all have to register)?  This would help us decide
whether it is a Firefox Layout bug or a case for Tech Evangelism.

Also, just for completeness, could you test the same page with a recent nightly
build of Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org/developer/#builds ?  This could
eliminate the possibility that it was a Layout bug but has already been fixed.

Same behaviour with Opera 8.0 WinXP.

This is probably a bug in the way the page was written if it doesn't work in
either Opera 8 or Firefox Trunk.  I am going to add the qawanted keyword for a
testcase so that we can test this without registering.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
