(Reporter: agracebush, Assigned: dr)


(Whiteboard: [rtm++])


(2 files)

Steps to reproduce:
1. using ./netscape (no options) to launch

actual results: profile manager dialog with [manage profiles] button is 
displayed (Select User Profile window), the area above this button is showing 
text/graphic from screen below it on desktop. after pressing manage - the next 
window shows text in that area...Manage User Profiles and description

expected results: Select User Profile screen intact

This is not showing on Win builds for 9/18
Mozilla Profile Manager on Linux also
not seen on Mac or Win

Ben, how bad is this?
Whiteboard: [rtm need info]
I used to see this on linux only too, but I think this problem ended when the
profile manager was fixed in the modern skin. I don't see it in classic.

Grace, do you still see this?

Giving to Peter, I think this may be some kind of reflow issue. 
Assignee: ben → trudelle
I haven't seen this. Grace, could you attach a screenshot, or let us know what
window manager, etc. you are using?
The screenshot shows what I think Grace is describing. It is some sort of reflow
problem with the <html> inside the <<deck>, but doesn't seem to happen on all
systems. However, for those affected that's what it looks like everytime they
start up.

However, I can fix this with less than a line of CSS (it's a bandaid over the
real problem). I just add 'border:1px solid transparent' to the style attribute
of the <html> element -- an invisible border -- and the problem goes away. I'll
attach a patch; this, of course, is just a cosmetic bug, but this is a very 
visible problem (and would be misleading for some users).
Good, let's get this one reviewed!  ->jrgm

Okay, a=ben, r=evaughan so [rtm+]. Dan Rosen has kindly agreed to check this
in (because I don't have the CVS account). 

PDT: this is a very low risk change, with no visual impact on other platforms,
but clears up a very visible visual flaw on Linux (every time opening profile 
manager -- see the attached image).

Yep, looks good to me (on the checkin, need to wait for the official build
to put this to sleep).
Verified on the 10/31 Linux trunk build.
