Hi, my girlfriend (sitting next to me) got a Windows XP SP3 (me too).
When I go on a specified website, displaying a <table> inside a <div>, her firefox is ignoring all <br> in the <td>.

Example code:
<tr><td> Hi <br> bye</td></tr>

:At her firefox, it is displayed as:
Hi bye

:At my firefox, it is displayed as:

Why is firefox reacting such different?

IE7 and Opera is displaying everything fine on both pc's.
I told a few friends also to visit the site end tell me their results, 
one of ten got the same weird stuff, that the <br> is ignored.

please fix that.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use my code listed at "Details".
2. Look with 5-6 different firefox 3.0.3 on the site
3. Feel the difference.

I checked the website with the w3 validator, the site is CSS 2.1 and HTML 4.01 validated.
You already tried the safemode and a new profile before posting the bug report ?

the example I wrote was a cut down of the full source.
Also a copy&paste the sourcecode doesn't reproduce the problem.

But I can hand out 2 screenshots and a copy&paste of the source of the website.
My Firefox:

Her Firefox:

The Website's source, Copy&pasted to a .html

And no, she didn't tried the safe mode.

Oh god damned.

I just looked at the both pictures twice. 
I didn't realize that she doesn't got the [S E M] links, I got.

Seems to be a failure at writing the site, and not a problem with Firefox, which maybe only revealed, since the friends where it happens using wide-screen monitors and resolutions.
