           Summary: Image loading causes misplacement of positioned footer.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://alastairc.ac/2007/08/comparing-tagged-pdfs-from-
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: ac at alastc.com

To reproduce, go to the address in the URL and observe the position of the
footer, a dark blue bar (with an "About this site" link) that should be at the
bottom of the page.

Depending on how quick the connection/server/computer is (I'm not sure which),
the footer could be between the lower comments and halfway up the page.

This will only happen on the first load of the page, a re-load will put the
footer where it should be. Emptying the cache doesn't seem to work for seeing
the bug again, but it happens on any of the posts with large pictures in the
content area.

The #footer is positioned absolutely at the bottom of the #mainwrap. I admit it
probably doesn't need to be absolutely positioned, but it's a leftover from
when I was doing a fixed header/footer experiment.

I guess that Webkit should work out where the footer goes after it knows how
much height the images will take up?

It may be related to Bug 12797, but not quite the same. I did try to do a cut
down test-case, but that didn't reproduce the issue, so I think you actually
need a lot of the content & 'stuff' for it to happen.
