[Linux] Clear Recent History dialog moves when toggling Details pane
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090612 Firefox/3.5 STR: 1. Click Tools 2. Click Clear Recent History 3. Click the arrow button beside Details to expand 4. Click the arrow button beside Details to collapse 5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 a couple of times RESULT: 1. Details pane expands/collapses 2. Dialog moves a few pixels to the bottom-right of the screen EXPECTED: Just expand/contract the dialog, don't move it.
Here is a screencast of the issue. This only happens on Linux. I checked on Mac and Windows and I can't reproduce the behaviour. It also appears to only happen with the Clear Recent History dialog. There is a similar UI for Bookmarks Details in the Bookmark Organizer and it does not display this behaviour.

Here's the resize code: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/base/content/sanitizeDialog.js#218 Does anyone know if window.resizeBy() is (sometimes) borked?
I just tried this in a VM and definitely cannot reproduce this bug there. I can however reproduce it on Ubuntu 9.04 32-bit Native from two separate machines.
Yeah, I'm using a VM.
I can also reproduce this on the Bookmarks Properties dialog. 1. Right click a bookmark 2. Click Properties 3. Click the arrow button beside Tags repeatedly
The bookmark properties uses window.resizeTo(): http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla1.9.1/source/browser/components/places/content/bookmarkProperties.js#422
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090612 Firefox/3.5 Quick update. I just tried this on my laptop at home and I can't reproduce this bug. I am running Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit. Apart from the test machine in the QA lab being 32-bit, it also has an NVidia card with the proprietary driver version 173 installed. My laptop has an Intel GMA950 graphics chip. I can't help but wonder if the driver is causing this to happen.
I think this is a widget bug, since the callers don't seem to do anything unusual here. Moving the bug accordingly.
