Steps to reproduce

Consider a table with several (n) columns and rows and the following CSS:

  border-collapse: separate;
  table-layout: fixed;
  width: 100%;

table:before {
  content: 'My Table'

When dynamically updating the table contents with fewer columns than (n), the renderer fails to draw the new table correctly.

Expected behavior:
Combined table columns should stretch to total the full width of the table.

Actual behavior
Table columns remain the same size as in the table prior to the update.

Interesting note: Checking and unchecking the content property of the :before pseudo element in developer tools triggers a correct redraw of the table.
