Vertical scrollbar displayed when last line of block has an inline with a 1px bottom border
Originally reported on Bug 416752. When a DIV is styled with overflow:auto and contains an ABBR at the end, the DIV is drawn too short, causing the scrollbar to appear. (Some other scrollbar testcases still work as well.)
This isn't special to <abbr>, I would assume. Presumably any inline with a bottom border would do that... It's not clear to me whether the 1px border should be triggering scrolling per se, but I see nothing in the spec that would prevent it from doing so. That seems unfortunate.
Component: Layout → Layout: Block and Inline
Summary: Scrollbar displayed when DIV contains ABBR → Vertical scrollbar displayed when last line of block has an inline with a 1px bottom border
Fwiw, WebKit would display a similar scrollbar given the same code / style (by default, <abbr> doesn't have any decoration in WebKit). I've always understood this to be the correct behaviour.
This is still an issue. I see this every day since our help desk software has this issue. I'll attach a screenshot if this helps. What additional information is needed to resolve this? Thanks.
