Attach the screenshot of the problem you are seeing, because that page works
I really dont understand what you mean with "drag the windows"

Confirming in 2001072304 trunk for MacOS.
Dragging the DHTML windows at the top causes the window frame color to over flow
into the second row windows.

here's a screenshot
There was a "WindowScript" that you needed to click on.  It was a JS popup, but
I grabbed the link address and updated the URL here to reflect it.

By the way, on Linux 2001072306 I don't see any mangling of the boxes.  No blue
trail, but not what the screenshot shows.

Oh, well. The URL has a different source script now. Need to find an appropriate
one for this bug.

also, when moving or resizing the windows everything moves really slow. i
experienced this problem with other sites which had extensive dhtml use.
with ie5 it works perfect.

This is crazy. Only the top banner loads in 0.9.5. Raising severity.
Might this be a networking issue?
Also adding this bug to my DOM bugs for Mozilla 1.0 list.
Severity: major → critical

I'd be surprised if this is a bug in our code, I didn't look at the code yet,
but it smells like evang to me. Any help with debugging the HTML on this site
would be creatly appreciated.
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.8
For testers, bug 109754 should be fixede in tomorrow's build, so you can
actually see the site again :)

found this style rule on the page

body {overflow:auto;}

seems to be causing the body to be small (that is why only the top part of the
page is visible). When I set it to overflow: hidden; it fixes that part of the
issue. Try putting this in the URL bar and press Enter:

javascript: void("hidden");

Besides this, the "redrawing problem" (the original problem reported) is still
there. It seems to only affect the top 3 "windows". I think it is because the
"windows" the content of those windows are actually overflowing out of the
"window". Note that when one "scroll" to the bottom it doesnot affect the
"windows" below it.
