Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 153269
Site unreadable with narrow browser window: text continues off-screen somewhere
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:22:39 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
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.
