Details

I can currently produce this pretty reliably on my mac by opening a new tab and going to http://store.channelfireball.com/landing

Interestingly, when I tried to take a screenshot of this, it came out corrupted! Almost the entire screenshot is transparent.
Nightly 60 x64 20180201220225 de_DE @ Debian Testing (KDE, Radeon RX480)
I can't reproduce.

Can you still reproduce?

Yep.

Since WR isn't shipping yet, I'm going to assume wontfix on 60 and 61. I'll leave 62 affected for now.
Can you still reproduce? This WFM on mac nightly.

i'm pretty sure i saw this a couple days ago, but it might have been fixed by async-scene-building? I'll keep an eye out.

Sounds like this is mac-only, if it's even still happening. We certainly haven't gotten any other reports of this. Bumping to P2, but it would be good to know if you're still seeing this or if we can close it as WFM.

still happens very reliably when i load https://www.channelfireball.com/all-strategy/

although the flicker is weirder now; it's like the top half of the tabs gets erased but not the bottom? Maybe a picture caching side-effect.

Can't reproduce anymore, hooray!
