Description

3 years ago
Environment:
FF 40
Build Id: 20150405030238
OS: Mac Os X 10.9.5, Mac Os X 10.10.3

STR:

1. Start Firefox.
2. Go to Nightly->Preferences->Advanced
3. Uncheck "Use hardware acceleration when available"
4. Restart Firefox.

Issue:
Firefox is started as a blank window that has visible only the OS related buttons( eg minimize, maximize, close window and resize buttons)

Note:
This issue is reproducible only on Mac Os X .
Is this something we could try catching with automated tests?

We are trying to sort out the approach that would let us catch things like this.  In the meantime, I wonder if this is related to bug 1150765 and if the problem goes away if security.sandbox.content.level is set to 0.

I don't see this problem on my machine, unless I also set layers.acceleration.disabled preference to true.  See the bug mentioned in comment 3.

Do you still see this with bug 1151644 fixed?

OK. I am closing this bug. It has been probably fixed somewhere else.
