What bug? I'd be interested to hear that since Presto tends to be more compliant that Gecko by a factor of ten.

The only 'major' bug I can think of is on the CSS side - the rendering error that occurs putting position:absolute elements inside display:inline elements... and anything doing that can hardly be called 'simple'. (and was fixed in 9.5 by all appearances)

DOM/js side I've found nothing amiss - unless you are trying to ice-skate uphill on stuff that doesn't work in IE or Safari either or using Gecko specific calls.

Of course, if you are a .js fan, Kestrel's performance in that arena should be a real joy being it's possibly the fastest implementation out there.
