I started a new profile and than firefox passed. Testing different configs, I finally identified bidi.direction as the culprit. I apologize if this is a bug in the test rather than firefox, but I'm not an expert in such things. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a new profile. 2. Change bidi.direction to 2 in about:config 3. Restart firefox and take acid2 test. Actual Results: Half of the lines are quasi-left justified (they are a fixed distance from the left border but are not flush with it), the other half are right-justified. See attached screenshot. Expected Results: I should see a beautiful smiley face.
I think this is INVALID. See the second Note at http://www.webstandards.org/action/acid2/ -- "When taking the test, you should use the default settings of the browser you are testing."
Yes, it is invalid. It turns out the setting about:config is no longer the correct way to set UI direciton, all this stuff having moved into higher magic in the locale. I've finally gotten a Hebrew nightly to start (they've been broken for the last couple of weeks), and Acid2 works just fine once all about:config variables are restored to default values. Sorry for the inconvinience.
