Will have text shift when links are right-clicked. The correct menu then also does not come up for the link. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on "analyzing horse-race betting markets."
Actual Results:  
The text shifts and the wrong right click menu comes up.

This does not happen with Firefox 3.0

Can you still reproduce using the testcase?  I tried on Windows and Linux and I couldn't, though I also tried a build from just before it was filed on Linux and couldn't there either.  I could imagine font differences could easily change whether something like this showed up.

Just reproduced on minefield 20081124 on Windows XP. 

The fonts I could find in the CSS were Arial, generic 'sans serif' and Georgia. I have all three installed.
Could you attach a screenshot of how the text looks both before and after it moves, so that we can see how the text is wrapping in that font and thus see if we're seeing the same fonts?

The issue appears to have been resolved, yesterday and today's build don't have an issue. 

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20081202 Shiretoko/3.1b3pre

Attached screen-shot anyways...
OK, marking as worksforme, then.

Adding a fixed1.9.1 keyword for lack of a worksforme1.9.1 keyword.
