DESCRIPTION: The quirk implement in bug 37657 should be only for tables, not
for any floating elements. There is no need to make this quirk for anything
other than tables since MSIE5 does it only for tables, and therefore pages on
the web depend on its presence only for tables. I'd rather not break css1
compliance too badly.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
* load attachment in window narrower than 1000px
* both tests are left/right
* first test should be above/below, second should be left/right
* Win98 mozilla 2000-06-16
WORKS CORRECTLY ON:
* Win98 MSIE5

As per meeting with ChrisD today, taking QA.
Nominating for nsbeta3 to get judgement call from PDT: should we fix this
(before FCS) or should we WONTFIX it? This will only impact legacy documents,
but it is unclear how much of an effect this 'bug' has.
If we do not fix this by nsbeta3 (and thus FCS) then there is no point fixing
it for future releases.
Ian - this bug is a quirk that we have that does not exist in older browsers.
We don't want that.
Sure, ideally we don't. But given where we're at (namely, weeks from release),
unless this actually affects real world pages then our time would be better
spent fixing real standards compliance bugs.
This *is* a standards-compliance bug. I think it would cause the boxacidtest to
fail in quirks mode.
BTW, this is also just a slight refinement to a previous fix -- do it only if
the tag name is table and the display property is table.
That is, in nsBlockReflowState::PlaceFloater, right after the first call to
GetCompatibilityMode, you should also get the tag name and (or perhaps or) the
display type, and change the logic from:
if (eCompatibility_NavQuirks != mode)
if ((eCompatibility_NavQuirks != mode) || (floaterDisplay->mDisplay !=
or maybe also get the content from the frame and the tag from the content and
make sure it's a table tag before one decides not to do this...
If you're considering not doing this for beta3, assign it to me and I'll do
You asked for it ;) - Since you know where to fix it, please make it good!
Thanks David, since buster's still on vacation I would have had to deny it...
Also, approving for beta3 since David is going to fix it and feels it is
