Description Will Pittenger 2009-09-18 01:07:11 PDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3 GTB5 (.NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3 GTB5 (.NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET CLR 3.5.30729) Build ID: 20090824101458

Examine the attached SVG.  It consists of just a flowed text object and the frame I flowed the text into.  Firefox can't display the text.  I am guessing that the flowed text tag was added to the spec since Gecko's SVG support was last updated.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View the attached SVG.  The text will be missing.
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
Firefox shows only the rectangle.

Expected Results:  
It should look like the PNG (as rendered by Inkscape).

I have 64-bit Vista SP2.  Hence the options selected for the platform.  Firefox is 32-bit.

Shows the bug

When Firefox 3.5.3 displays this image, it shows only the rectangle.  It should show the text too.

This is what Firefox should show

This PNG was rendered for the same SVG, but by Inkscape.

Will, you don't need to list installed extensions, themes or plugins unless asked for. It just floods the report with a ton of text that's not usually needed.
