[Tracking Requested - why for this release]:

@ Jim: this Flash bug appears to be a regression from your fix for transparency bug 1312242.

STR:
1. Watch the Flash video at http://www.cc.com/video-clips/bcgxga/the-meltdown-with-jonah-and-kumail-made-up-numbers

RESULT:
The Flash video has white lines along its top and bottom borders. The Flash video plays correctly in Chrome and Edge.

I am running Flash 23.0.0.207 on Windows 10. This bug is not reproducible on Mac.

* If you see that the preroll ad is 1/4 the expected size, that is a different problem: Flash content-scaling bug 1302490.

* If you see a white rectangle instead of the actual video, that is Flash bug 1308699 and you may need to update your Flash plugin or reload the video page a couple times.

tracking for 52 as a new regression
Thanks. We might have to back that out and look for another fix.

Jim said this only happens on nightly by default (you can flip a pref to make it happen on 52).
I presume the pref in question is the async-drawing pref
Version: unspecified → 52 Branch
getting this out of platform triage, we're tracking this in the async drawing project.
Keywords: regression
fixed by backout in bug 1331951.
