The "Content" preferences pane is squished.  If it's already the selected pane when I open preferences, it's cut off in addition to being squished.

not squished on Windows. 
This is probably also a problem on the branch now that bug 345516 was checked in?
Yes, I can confirm I see this on today's branch Mac build - Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1b1) Gecko/20060801 BonEcho/2.0b1, nominating.

I'm not seeing this in my Mac builds, either on trunk or on branch.  Apparently other people are, which is rather odd.  I'm going to try to connect up offline with people like beltzner who are seeing this..

Might it have something to do with the fact that the font names are bustificated as well? Try clicking on the default font combobox to see what I mean.

I'm seeing it as well with latest nightly and clean profile.  I'll come show you Jeff.

As it turns out, looking at a busted Content pane using DOMi reveals some interesting extra elements not present in the Content pane.  These extra elements are placed there by the XForms extension, which apparently is part of official branch Mac nightlies for some unknown reason (see bug 347421), even tho it shouldn't be.  :-\  The XForms extension includes a prefwindow overlayd which attempts to overload a non-existent element with the id "contentGroupbox", causing general havoc in the window.

Essentially, this bug appears because the XForms extension hasn't been updated for the new prefwindow work and is incorrectly shipped with Mac builds.  Making it not build should fix the problem, so I'm making this bug depend on the bug to not ship XForms.

Does this still happen if you install the XForms extension?  If so, a bug should probably be filed on it.

It happens again, and XForms is installed again with this rc.

That's not what I'm seeing - the latest branch builds (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20060922 BonEcho/2.0 with a brand new profile) still have the squished content preference tab and the default font can't be set.

Should this bug be reopened, then? It's marked as "will be fixed by 347421" but that bug is marked as fixed even though xforms is still part of the default build.

"this problem", "it"... please file a new bug describing /exactly/ the bug you're seeing (be it the Xforms extension being installed, etc.)
