Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv:1.8.1.12) Gecko/20080207 Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy) Firefox/2.0.0.12
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv:1.8.1.12) Gecko/20080207 Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy) Firefox/2.0.0.12

I see this issue for quite a while (can't tell when it has started): Sometimes a line of text overlaps with the next line (there are only some pixels instead of a whole line distance between the top of the characters)

I can't track to a specific site, it seems it can happen everywhere. I'm also sure that i have seen it on a windows computer running firefox, too.

I think most of the time the first line is enclosed in an <A > tag, but i'm not sure.

everytime i see this issue, it can be solved by reload
