Jiggly Text... Sounds like a new Pokemon, right? Not really. Drag select some text in the browser window. Notice how the font jiggles the characters to the right of what you select. It doesn't crash the browser, but it's weird, since no other application I have does this.
Oh, this is with 1020 on my usual TP770X, 1024 * 768 * 32 bpp, SDD. (Trying out Mike's new template for bug reports).

Re-confirmed still broken under 1114.
Behaviour is better under 1121. The font now only jiggles when I'm using the default monospace font.
...and happens with Courier New, but not with Courier. Is this a Postscript vs. TrueType problem?
No, it's a bitmap font vs. non-bitmap font problem.
So Mozilla doesn't like bitmap fonts? I'm just looking to clean up the summary.
This is a permanent restriction caused by an incompatibility between the Mozilla GFX layer and OS/2 GPI. The whole is more/less than the sum of the elements...

If that's the case, then it should be noted as a Release Note for the next OS/2 milestone build and subsequent releases. I'll hold this bug in this state for Mike or Jeffrey to set Verify then.
