In the 1.0.x release these type of pages showed a regular grid. Now with rc2, the grids have large grey divider lines inserted between each row so it makes viewing grid pages annoying, making them 5 times longer then needed. Before with a normal grid row divider, it was normally around 20 rows per page, now 20 rows takes 5 pages. I hate having to use IE just to view the tv guide 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
2. you might have to select a cable company so pick any that appear

Actual Results:  
large grey divider lines inserted between each row 

Expected Results:  
standard grid "row" lines, same size as the "column" lines

This seems to depend on the font I'm using but I see a big change between the build of 1.8b4_2005072614 and 1.8b4_2005072622.
I'm not really sure what the issue is here. Maybe a screenshot would help?
Possibly the reporter means the difference between these pictures:
It changes when I resize the window btw.
I can't reproduce, with which font I could eventually see the bug?

According to the regression range in comment 1:
This could be a regression of bug 299742 or bug 223737.

A testcase would probably be appreciated (I can't reproduce the bug).

The two screenshots are made with a new profile (default settings, first run) one from 16 Jul 2005 and one latest branch. When I change the font to Verdana, minimum size 14, the problem gets more visible.
In trunk it is not visible anymore. Something fixed it between 31 Oct and now.
The bug is only visible after the site has stopped loading.
In trunk it is fixed between 1.9a1_2005110214 and 1.9a1_2005110217 although I still see ugly dark lines when I use larger fonts than default.

Regression range from comment 9:
Perhaps fixed by bug 227121?

Anyway, if it is WORKSFORME on trunk, then this bug isn't probably not very important anymore, since I don't think this is something important enough to get fixed on branch.

The layout still doesn't deserve the beauty price when the user defined font is larger than default. Don't know if this is a matter of bad coding.

I can't reproduce this with "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20071119 BonEcho/ ID:2007111903", even using huge fontsizes.
wfm per past comments.  please reopen if seen on modern versions of Firefox
