Website rendering issues under Firefox 2.0.0.6 & SeaMonkey 1.14 and 1.15

Hello, I have noticed a strange website rendering issue under all the three 
above mentioned browsers for eCS. My eCS is eSC 2.0 RC2 with all fix-packs 
and patches applied.

My mozilla products all have the Innotek FontEngine applied to them (2.60 
beta) and have all be awesome to use. This past week when I decided to gift 
myself a new GPU, I ran into an interesting rendering problem with the above 
browsers. The tigerdirect.com page does not render the text input boxes for 
keyword search and deal alerts correctly. I have a screenshot that I can 
email or post elsewhere for reference if requested. Basically, the text 
input box that should look like:
--------------------------|
--------------------------|
looks like:
              ----------------|
-------------------------|
----------
with part of the entry box displaced and covered by the blue banner and 
images not fully displayed.

I am uncertain what could cause this rendering oddity, but I thought it may 
be useful to note. Please let me know if you experience this odditiy, or if 
I have something the matter with my Mozilla suite products.

Thanks,
Brett Carlock

That is nice. :-)

I doubt that changing the graphics card would have any effect on the
rendering (it really happens at a level far above the driver). _Unless_
your new graphics card also made you install a different driver. (So far
I haven't really heard any reports from users of the Panorama VESA
driver.)
You could open a new bug entry via https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi
and attach the screenshot there.

I see the same thing with Sea Monkey 1.5a.  It's a rendering issue. 
More and more web pages require rendering that mandates newer browsers. 
  Unfortunately, OS/2 is pretty much stuck with Gecko 1.8 which is 
fairly old now, in internet years.

For what it's worth, it displays incorrectly on Windows as well, using 
both Seamonkey and IE.  Who knows what they are testing on...

Actually, forget that. It's a fault of the webpage itself. It assumes 
that everybody uses a particular font size and when that doesn't happen,
the layout is broken. If you try out a few font sizes using Ctrl+ / 
Ctrl- you will probably find one where the inputs look just right. (The 
same problem happens on Linux, too, only that there by chance I have set
the font size that they expect.)

Not really. It's just that Mike Kaply's build machine doesn't seem (to
be able) to produce trunk nightlies any more. I am currently trying to
find a way to upload builds (and releases!) in a semi-regular way to
Mozilla's release server. The most recent available trunk build is
Andy's SeaMonkey of Oct 2nd from
    ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/incoming/seamonkey.zip

 > which is fairly old now, in internet years.

Agreed. But, regarding the problem this thread is about: Gecko 1.9 has
the same "problem".

Thanks for clearing it up, and keep up the amazing work guys!
