When running mozilla 0.9.5 under MacOS 8.6 (After just doing a clean install from the 8.6 disc that shipped with the computer (Blue & White G3-450), if I switch the color depth from "Thousands" to "Millions", Mozilla's colors get all messed up. Sometimes the background of the web-page becomes black. Other times only the mozilla "frame" does strange things. This happens with both the modern theme, and the classic theme.
Well, I can confirm this happens. I ran Mac/2001101117 under OS 9.2.1 on a G4 in 24-bit color mode, and switched to 16-bit. Lo, seriously tweaked colors. Guessing XPToolkit/Widgets. Will attach screenshot shortly. Marking OS=All. There may be some relation to bug 57799, which is about responding to Appearance Theme changes. I'm sure the OS sends some sort of color depth change event that Mozilla simply isn't responding to here.

Summary: Mozilla 0.9.5 inverts colors when changing color depth on the fly → Mozilla color display is corrupted when the System color bit depth is changed

I must say I'm rather surprised I can't find a duplicate of this. I'd be shocked if this were only a recent problem.

I've tested this on Win2k, using Mozilla 0.9.4, and was unable to duplicate the behavior. I will re-test with Mozilla 0.9.5.
seems that background colors and borders are painting incorrectly. --> Layout

Could not duplicate the behavior on Win2k w/0.9.5, so it does not appear to be a regression issue, not does it appear to affect the win2k platform.
Be sure to note that display corruption affects the chrome, also.
