Do you see this bug on trunk?  If not, I think you should just mark it as worksforme unless it's a regression since Firefox

Hi Jesse,

Is this question for me? If it is I'm not sure I understand. If you want me to test it on another version I can. 

The bug has existed for a while - maybe even on 1.5 - but I've only just got round to addressing the effects it on our site.

You can download the Minefield builds here:
I see it indeed move a bit in Firefox but not anymore in trunk nightlies which are the builds with the latest patches.
This bug was fixed by bug 300030. Resolving WORKSFORME.

I think we've typically marked reflow-branch bugs as FIXED, not WFM.  We need to make sure this is in the test suite anyway.
Flags: in-testsuite?

Can you tell me what release version the new code likely to be in?

Gecko 1.9 / Firefox 3.
