Description Telsa Gwynne 2005-04-04 06:33:28 EDT
My browser window is generally taller than it is wide. This leads
to problems on several websites. Red Hat's is one. Sometimes 
there is no horizontal scrollbar and text carries off into the 
distance on the right, so that I cannot see it. The home page
for Red Hat is an example. Sometimes there is a horizontal scrollbar 
and text -still- carries off into the distance. This happens on 
Bugzilla.

The Fedora pages are unaffected. The monthly magazine thing
Red Hat puts out is gravely affected: its main page and every 
article within it are completely unreadable. 
  
This is Fedora Core 3 with mozilla-1.7.3-17 from Red Hat. 
Screenshots on their way. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Mozilla. 
2. Resize window so that you can fit two browsers onto a 1280x1024
screen side-by-side without overlapping.
3.Visit http://www.redhat.com and http://www.redhat.com/magazine/
and http://bugzilla.redhat.com (for extra points, try to find the 
vertical scrollbar for the 'description' box as you enter a bug)
  
Actual results: as per screenshots 
Expected results: being able to read all of it and reach forms and
buttons and links on the right hand side.

This was fixed quite a while back, but I don't know exactly when.
