Reported from fxinput:

It says that this page layout is broken only on Fx.

The page specifies the width of table as 760px but actual width is wider than it because there is a line which has only IDEOGRAPHIC SPACEs (U+3000).

See the attached testcase. On WebKit and Opera, the line is broken between them. I'm not sure for IE9. IE9 doesn't break the page layout but doesn't break lines on the testcase.

Anyway, we should break lines before IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE after a white space.

This is a bit complicated.

This code is trying not to break inside runs of breakable spaces, only at the end of a run of breakable spaces. For normal spaces that usually can't produce long lines since runs normal spaces are compressed by default. But 0x3000 isn't compressed by nsTextFrameUtils::TransformText (and they're not compressed by any other browser, so we shouldn't start doing that.

Opera and Webkit allow breaking both before and after 0x3000, which your patch doesn't do.

Could we remove 0x3000 from IsSpace and/or NS_IsSpace, and rely on nsILineBreaker to return allowed break positions before and after 0x3000? That might be the cleanest way to fix this.
Summary: IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE (U+3000) should cause like break after a white space → IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE (U+3000) should cause line break after a white space

Okay, this doesn't hurt other parts calling the method.
