#50 Trouble with tables (still)

There has been an anomaly in table width display for most of the nightly builds throughout April, and now M15.

A simple table with width="95%" and cells of th width="5%" th width="10%" th width="50%" th width="10%" displayed correctly in M14 and nightly builds through March 29, but for every nightly build I've tried since then, extra width (blank space) has been added when the same table is displayed, forcing the table to scroll horizontally. So each time I've gone back to the March 29 nightly and waited to see if the next one might change. Not so far.

I've also tried to set font size in prefs.js and user.js to 10 point for fixed and 11 for variable width. Nothing less than 12 is offered in Preferences, and nothing set in the prefs.js and user.js files to less than 12 seems to have any effect.

In NS6PR1 the table displays correctly (no extra blank space and no horizontal scrolling), but the font stays stuck at 12 point.

So what happened in M15 (and now M16) nightly builds? Why is table display so distorted?
