Description David Kilzer (:ddkilzer) 2009-02-24 04:31:24 PST
The URL <http://www.lostremote.com/> renders incorrectly on the latest WebKit nightly build.  There are supposed to be three columns on the page, but the right two columns are rendered below the column on the left (which is pushed to the right).

1. Launch WebKit nightly build r28007 and WebKit nightly build r41173.
2. Compare page rendering.

WebKit r28007 renders the page correctly.  WebKit r41173 does not.

This is a regression.

I'm running bisect-builds now to narrow down the regression.

The only layout/rendering-related change in that range is r32872:

I suspect the YouTube video on the "Watch as TV Ends" post is causing the misrendering, but I don't have any proof yet.

Caused by <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/32872>. I think the new behavior is correct. Firefox has a tendency to push floats down even if they would fit on the line. See attached reduction.

Hyatt, do you think we can/should "fix" it?

Hyatt and I think that the current layout is correct and this is a bug in the website.

Sent email to tips at lostremote dot com about the issue.

Looks like this can be closed - though FF14 is still the odd one out on the reduction.
