1. Go to URL above.
2. Click on 'Red Har Linux 6.1 Security Advisories' link.

The page display shifts right temporarily, and then load the new page. Not a
showstopper, but visually irksome. Very repeatable.

I'm using the 2000-03-05-09 build on Redhat/6.0 Linux/2.2.14.

Confirming on NT with 3/5 build.  Looks like an unnecessary reflow.  Probably a 
duplicate of 28212.  I'm going to change this to NEW and HTML Tables as well as 
add a notation to 28212 that this may be a dupe.

It's surely a dup of the bug 28212 and I see this behaviour on many other pages

This one *may* be connected to bug 28212.
Although Slashdot a.o. always reorganizes the page (as if table cells width were
changed, but the whole table width stays the same) with *no* duplicate graphics.
(nice testcase is ,click on
mail mozilla)

This bug causes a table cell to *shift* (first column width smaller => whole
table width smaller) to the right, leaving graphics on the left side duplicated.

So I'm not too sure about a duplicate bug.
The testcase of provided in bug 28212 seems to belong rather to
this kind of bug.

As sebastian pointed out, there seem to be two separate but quite similar issues

However, the URL given above seems (to me) to be a duplicate of most of the
testcases available in bug 28212 -- the defining symptom seems to be the
duplication/redrawing of graphics, though Sebastian's Slashdot example may be
due to the relative lack of graphics in Slashdot's tables.

I'll work on isolating one or the other in a simple testcase.

I'm uploading a testcase that shows Mozilla resising cells (not the entire
table) when a link is clicked.

When creating the testcase, I noticed that the problem occurred only when :
The link color was specified in the BODY tag.
The font size was specified as larger than normal ("3" in this case).
The user selected a link after the first two in the cell.

I'm posting this as a testcase for bug 28212 as well.

Simple testcase for table resize on clicking link

The testcase supplied by makes me think the part of this problem
that is "clicking on links changes table cell size" is due to the outline
displayed around the link.  Drawing the outline seems to change the metrics
reported by the block to the table, and the table sizes itself accordingly.  I
thought I saw a note from pierre and/or vidur about this in another bug, so I'm
cc'ing them to see if it is a duplicate.
I can reproduce this in M14, but WORKSFORME in 20000324. Marking such.
