Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417
BuildID:    2002041711

Mozilla can (under some circumstances) display garbage in an iframe.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to http://www.home.arm.linux.org.uk/armlinux/test.php
2.You'll end up with a prompt for a download.  Hit cancel.
3.Drag another window over mozilla, and move this window around.
4.Observe the mess that appears in the iframe.

Actual Results:  Mess displayed - which changes depending on how you drag the
window on
top of mozilla.

Expected Results:  Displays something consistently (eg, blank background?)

and ... i am wondering is this bug related to bug 120280?
Confirming. The IFRAME URL fetches something that's not HTML so I guess a
document isn't being created and we end up with an IFRAME with nothing inside it
to paint itself. What should happen in this case?
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
To be consistent with the main window I guess we should fill it with about:blank
or something.

Not happening on WinXP NS 2002052208 (based on trunk).

Not happening on Mozilla branch build from yesterday either, but there is a
major difference ... on trunk the iframe is black, on branch it is white.
It's white on my Linux trunk build ... but it does work. Marking WORKSFORME.
