possible bug in Gecko 1.8 ?

    I *may* have found a minor bug in Gecko 1.8
    ( or maybe 1.8 is closer to W3C standards, so is highlighting a problem
    that other rendering-engines are ignoring... :) )

    this occurs with both Firefox 1.5 b2 and SeaMmonkey a1
    and not with IE6, Opera 8.5 nor Mozilla Suite 1.7.12

    all of the above running on WinXP Pro SP2



    main content of the web page has a <div>
    within that is a table - containing just 2 cells
    the left-hand cell contains a <div> for an <ul> of menu links
    the right-hand cell is a <div> for the main content of the page


    click and hold the mouse button down on any of the menu links -
    the left-hand cell narrows
    ( whether it's the cell itself, or the <div> it contains that forces the
    narrowing, I'm not sure... )

    so the right-hand cell jumps a little to the left
    and the narrowing of the left-hand cell means links take additional
    lines, so changing which link is highlighted...


    my work-around at present is to include
    in the style for the left-hand cell: "white-space: nowrap;"

    as long as you know that Seamonkey 1.a and Firefox 1.5b2 are testing
    programs only. They are still in the developement stage. They may
    contain bug and other problems. These are programs are not yet ready
    for prime time usage.
