From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010916 BuildID: 2001060810 When loading a page, the following happens: 1) The browser window flashes black. 2) The original page displayed in the browser window is redisplayed. 3) The browser window flashes black again. 4) The new page starts to load. The problem started with release 0.9.1 (build id 2001060810), and is not present in release 0.9.0 (build id 2001050716). I cannot narrow it down any more closely than that because there are no nightly builds from that long ago. I am running RedHat Linux version 7.1. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to www.mozilla.org 2. Click on the "At A Glance" link. 3. Watch as the above described behaviour happens.
WFM Win98SE 2001091703 Reporter: Does this problem exist in the latest nightly Linux build?
It happens in 0.9.4. I'll have to check the nightly build on my machine at work in the morning. It's interesting I can only reproduce it on my workstation at the office. Neither my laptop nor my home machine both running the same version of Redhat exhibit the problem, which makes me think it may be something strange with the particular XFree86 driver on that computer. The video card, according to my XF86Config file is a "ATI|Rage 128 PF". I know that doesn't answer your question, Jay, but it seems pertinent. Like I said, I'll find out about tonights nightly builds in the morning. Thanks for taking a look.
Yes, it still exists in Build ID: 2001091805 (the latest nightly build)
Worksforme with 092103 mozilla win32 build on win2K and win98, 092106 mozilla linux build on RedHat 6.2 and 092108 mozilla mac build on OS 8.5 and 9.1
Interestingly, upgrading to RedHat 7.2 fixes this problem. I can only assume it was an issue with XFree86 4.0.1 and the newer 4.1.0 fixes it.
Since I opened this, and it looks to have been not actually a Mozilla bug, I'm going to close it as invalid.
