The specified website will not render properly with the latest nightlies (for the past couple of weeks), the mozilla-sparc-solaris-2.6 builds running on Solaris 8. Immediate examples are the "headlines" block being placed over top of the sidebar, and the appearance of "image\trans" (which appears to be the name of the graphical bars on either site of the main news area). The website renders perfectly using the latest nightlies on Win32.
Ok, second try. [I tried to use mozilla to add a comment to this bug, but mozilla crashed while I was entering the comments... :( ] I loaded http://www.voodooextreme.com/ with both - PC/Linux build 2000063020 and - Sun/Solaris2.6 build 2000062921. I could not find any differences. I do *not* see anything ``being placed over top of the sidebar''. Maybe this only occurs if you run the solaris-2.6 build on solaris-8? As far as this problem is concerned, I recommend worksforme. I *do* see the ``images\trans'' text screwing up the page. This is closely related to bug 41924 "Change how layout handles broken images". Reassigning to the owner of that bug. Ian -- can you comment on the second issue? If there are more problems on this page, please open new bugs for each of them, but only one problem per bug and only after searching for similar bugs. For solaris-specific bugs, it could also help some people if you compare the behaviour on Solaris and Linux and describe the difference. (Of course, that requires access to a linux machine...)
I'm afraid I didn't think of it as two separate issues when I filed... I was stuck in "it does one thing on Windows and something different on Solaris". I considered that to be a bit odd for the rendering engine. The different table cells appearing on top of each other appears to have gone away. However, I can still get the "image\trans"... and my main concern was, it doesn't do it on Win32. If they BOTH displayed it, fine, or if they both didn't. But why the difference? Bug 41924 doesn't appear to be architecture specific.
Just checked Voodooextreme, it no longer has the problems I mentioned. Whether something changed in the browser or on the site, I dunno, it doesn't matter at this point. Voodooextreme is still an exceptional piece of murder for Mozilla, but that's something different altogether.
This bug is still happening, but it seems to depend on the size of the browser window. Keep shrinking the horizontal size of the browser, and eventually, you'll see this bug. Conversely, if you expand the horz. size, the problem goes away at some point. However, the same size window with Netscape 4.7x and IE 4.x doesn't have the problem.
That's true. I'm seeing it on Linux with a build from today. Sounds like a cross-platform problem. Maybe this bug should be reopened? Or are there any other open bugs about this?
Some more details: I have my sidebar turned off completely, and my fonts set to 13 pixel size. Some experiments showed that a browswer window width of 738 pixels was okay, but 737 pixels (or less) triggered the problem. I'm guessing a lot of people have their browser set larger than this, and that's why they're not seeing it.
I'd like to suggest this bug be reopened, as it definitely still occurs.
Reopening per request.
Chris, this one belongs to your group.
Unfortunately, VoodooExtreme changed their page layout a lot recently, so that this bug is no longer triggered. I'm pretty sure I've seen the problem on some other pages, but I can't give a specific page right now. Just noting this so no one wastes time trying to reproduce it. I suspect the bug still exists, but I just don't know how to trigger it anymore.
Triaging karnaze's bugs. Marc, would it be yours?
win32 trunk build from 2001-09-21. WFM mac trunk build from 2001-09-21. WFM
WFM too, but as I noted, the actual layout on the site has changed, so there's no way to know if this bug is still around. But I suppose this should be resolved as WFM, and a new bug opened if it's ever found again.
Per comments made (layout now changed), marking bug WORKSFORME. Reporter, if bug still exists, please reopen and provide another testcase - thanks
