Description Nicholas Miell 2005-03-01 16:33:26 EST
In the recently released Pango-enabled Firefox errata package for FC3, spaces
between italicized text and an italicized hyperlink are sometimes lost.

See attached image for an example. I verified that the original HTML does
contain spaces between the text and the anchor.

Comment 2 Christopher Blizzard 2005-03-01 16:45:25 EST
What fonts are you using for your sans and sans-serif fonts in your preferences?
Comment 3 Nicholas Miell 2005-03-01 17:04:42 EST
Bitstream Vera Serif and Bitstream Vera Sans.

Note that it doesn't always omit the space; the example I gave was cropped for size.
Comment 4 Jon Orris 2005-03-01 18:02:30 EST
I've replicated this using those fonts.
Setting MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1 eliminates the problem.

patch to fix problems

This patch fixes the rounding errors that were causing this bug.
Comment 7 Christopher Blizzard 2005-03-21 21:43:52 EST
This will be fixed in the next fc3 errata build.
Comment 8 Christopher Aillon 2005-03-31 04:47:25 EST
Yeah, fixed in fc3 and rawhide.
Comment 9 Nicholas Miell 2005-04-20 15:43:17 EDT
Was firefox-1.0.3-1.3.1 supposed to fix this? I'm still seeing it.
Comment 10 Warren Togami 2005-09-30 15:42:07 EDT
I haven't seen this for a while.  Are you still seeing this issue?
