Description Nathan G. Grennan 2002-08-15 10:56:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020809

Description of problem:
Mozilla 1.0.0, 1.0.1, and trunk all still have bugs with the renderer rounding
numbers and being off by one pixel. Weeks ago I found a patch to fix then in the
1.0.x branch. It doesn't work in the trunk because of other chances and some of
the bugs have been fixed, but other off by one pixel bugs are still in the trunk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Why does the summary say "RFE"? This doesn't look to me like an enhancement
request -- rather, it looks like a request to add a workaround for a bug.
"workaround for a bug" != "enhancement", at least in my opinion...

BTW, as far as I understand, a real fix for the off-by-one scrolling problems
was committed to the 1.0.1 branch and the trunk. You might want to take a look
at this bug in Mozilla's Bugzilla (where I believe your patch originally came
from): http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80530

(I haven't followed the progress on the off-by-one selection bug though.)

As far as I know nothing has been applied too the 1.0.1 branch. I still see off
by one problems with mozilla-1.0.1-15. This patch applies without need of
modification and fixes the problems I see.

Mozilla has since been upgrade to 1.2.1 in rawhide and the patch I mentioned
won't apply. I have since been able to work around this bug by tweaking
settings. Hopefully it will one day get fixed upstream.
