Description

17 years ago
Mozilla Build ID: 2002041810 (trunk), have seen this bug for months.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load URL http://actu.voila.fr/Article/article_hightech_020419094319.v1te153j.html
2. Scroll either with mouse wheel or scrollbar,
3. Sometimes you'll see black blocks as in upcoming screenshot.

This occurs on some few other sites but I often see this bug surfing on this
site http://actu.voila.fr/
Might be related: bug 101907.
I'm using a T22 with S3 chipset at 16bpp, latest drivers.

This could also be related to bug 104992 or bug 111176

Ian I don't think this is bug 104492 as I'm not using an ATI graphic card, but a
S3 Savage IX. Bug 111176: perhaps although the graphic glitch is definitely
different.
I'll see if disabling cursor & bitmap acceleration makes it working.

Marking dupe of bug 115452, there's definitely an issue with Mozilla/GTK/Win32
and S3 Savage* graphic cards.
When disabling cursor & bitmap acceleration, there's no issue anymore.

Reopening as even driver 7.40.54 (which fixed bug 115452) didn't solve this one.

Olivier, can you still reproduce it with a current trunk build?
