Reproducability: Always

Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to the Mozilla Tree Status page
2. Click on any link.
3. Click the back button.

Expected Results: The Tree Status page appears correctly again.

Actual Results: The Tree Status page appears with garbage below the table
(scroll down to the bottom of the page).

I've noticed this problem with the last few nightly builds, including
2001061804, on Windows 2000. I also have this problem with some tables produced
by a web app I wrote.

This bug has suddenly become much harder to reproduce. I had to use Mozilla for
about half an hour doing a variety of unrelated tasks before I could get garbage
to appear again.

I've seen this today on tinderbox as well (and I think I've seen things like
this for a while).

Consistently reproducible.  I've seen this bug for about a month.

I'm not seeing it on the tinderbox.mozilla.org link in the original bug report,
but I'm seeing it on many other pages, including:

http://www.userfriendly.org/static (at bottom of page, right after the yellow block)
http://slashdot.org (bottom of page, black text on black background.  Highlight
that area to see the garbage).

I'm sure that I could come up with many other examples too.

Might this have something to do with bug 79983?

Please retest with some latest trunk builds. I think it's fixed now.

I still see the problem with trunk build 2001070304 on Windows 2000 SP2.

Still seeing the problem

linux x86 2001-07-10-21
I'm seeing this on Linux and Mac with Mozilla 0.9.2 (Build-ID 2001062823). OS
should be changed to All.

I really think this is a dup of bug 79983.  It seems to be the cause of all 
kinds of problems like this.

I'll leave it up to the reporter to dup this or not.

I just installed the latest nightly on the Mac (ID 2001072308) and don't seem to
be able to reproduce this anymore. Sorry about the spam.

The problem is still there.

I've noticed that it doesn't occur right away.
You have to keep using the browser for a while
before you'll see the problem again.
OK, I've seen it again with the new build (again on Mac). But it seems to happen
much less frequently. Although, I can't really tell because I haven't found a
way to reproduce this reliably. :-(

Marking this as a dup of bug 79983.  That bug was fixed and should have fixed 
the symptoms described here as well. If anyone can still reproduce this, feel 
free to re-open it.

I downloaded today's nightly for Mac (BuildID: 2001073004) and it happened to me
again! This time it was on the Mozilla.org frontpage which didn't change between
loads so this bug is very probably not a dupe of bug 79983. Please reopen.

Unfortunately I don't know how to make a screenshot on Mac (I'm using this
computer at school) so a description will have to do: at the very bottom of the
page (even after the link for Document history), what shows up is an ODY>. The
relevant page source is:

Last modified July 30,  2001.

This happens even if I open a new window and access that page. When I hit
reload, everything turns back to normal.

Can you reproduce this with a new profile or after emptying your cache?  I'd be 
more inclined to re-open this if you could reproduce the bug starting from a 
clean slate.

Been running it for several days, and haven't seen the problem.
