Description

18 years ago
The problem occurs in the build ID: 2000081508 (but I also saw it in the M17 
build).  The attached file demonstrates the problem and this is what you ahve to 
do to see it.
1. Open the HTML source file that is attached.
2. Click on the button with the writing "Show First paragraph"
3. Now click on the button again -- it show be labelled as "Hide first 
paragraph" and notice that the paragraph immediately above it overwrites the 
yellow box on its right which is a floating element.  If you minimize the window 
and then immediately reshow it, the layout is done correctly.

If I'm not mistaken this was working properly in earlier builds -- like M13 or 
M14 but I really don't remember now which one.

We're not reflowing the paragraph after the one that is hidden, I'll look into why.

Note that you have to make the window narrow to show the problem, so that the
text in the lower paragraph wraps around the floater.
