[FLASH] Drawing problems on Mac OS
* TITLE/SUMMARY [PP] [FLASH] Drawing problems on Mac OS & Linux (broken out of bug #8063) * STEPS TO REPRODUCE 0) Launch Apprunner 1) On Mac OS, install the Flash plug-in, 4.0 r14. 2) On Linux, install Flash Player 4, August 25th 1999 3) View these URLs: - http://www.geocities.com/tokyo/bay/9072/scaled.html - http://www.geocities.com/tokyo/bay/9072/fixed.html * RESULT - What happened Linux: * No Flash content appears. Left-hand portion of page containing flash content is black; no way to trigger events that I can discern. Mac OS: * Flash content not automatically redrawn when browser window covered up and re-exposed. * On the fixed.html page, the page content is drawn on top of the page chrome. Also, upon a window resize, the plug-in output is replaced with a gray rectangle. (Moving the mouse over the gray rectangle results in Flash content appearing upon mouse-over over the appropriate locations.) - What was expected Behavior on these pages equivalent to when viewed on Win32. (I used the 4.0r13 version of the Flash plug-in, NPSWF32.dll.) * REGRESSION - Occurs On Mac OS Apprunner (1999 10/07 08:00) Linux Apprunner (1999 10/11 08:00) - Doesn't Occur On Win32 Apprunner (1999 10/6 08:00) * CONFIGURATIONS TESTED - [Mac] Beige Power Mac G3 (266 MHz PowerPC 750), 96 MB RAM (VM on; 1 MB of VM used), 1024x768 (Thousands of Colors), Mac OS 8.6 - [Win32] Vectra VL (233 MHz P2), 96 MB RAM, 800x600 (True Color), NT 4.0 SP5. - [Linux] Vectra VL (266 MHz P2), 96 MB RAM. Red Hat Linux 6.0 (GNOME).

Flash plugins now works properly on mac. It won't work on Linux unless a mozilla compatible plugin is released by Shockwave. So marking this bug as worksforme.

Doesn't work for me. On MozMacM14 (2000022108) OS 9, go to www.nin.com. There is an intro animation (a flashing "NIN" logo) and then you are taken to the homepage (a Flash object w/ multiple links). However, when the intro is loaded, only the left half displays (the right half only shows up as a gray rectangle). The same happens for the homepage. Using Macromedia Netscape Plugin: Shockwave Flash NP-PPC 4.0 r20. Might have to take another look at this one.
Re-opening for Shrirang & AV. Thanks!

Akay,do you have the shockwave plugin file placed in the "Plugins" folder under your mozilla installation?
Whoops, didn't catch the ? - sorry. Yeah. At the time I had the latest Flash plugin in the Moz Plugins folder. Tried with other plugins in the ? and with just Flash. Also tried with r27. Will try with M15 (2000030508) sometime this week.
Tried on Mozilla Mac M15 (2000030508) with latest Flash (4.0r27) plugin in the Plugins folder in the Mozilla directory. The animation again failed to display correctly (same problem) and Mozilla promptly crashed after the animation finished loading. Interesting crash so I'm attaching a StdLog from MacsBug 6.6.
As Flash content is widely used on the internet, does anyone agree that this should be on the list for nsBeta2 (the Shockwave problems have already been added)?
Do you still have problems viewing flash movies on mac? I can get flash to work fine on macintosh builds. Pls try again. Thnx. Am changing summary for mac OS.

I'm stil seeing the gray rectangle upon resizing <http://www.broesewristers.nl>. Would be happy to do final Mac verification on this bug when it's fixed if you'd like.
Thanks eli ! setting qa contact :elig bug 35777 exists for the resize problem .
QA Contact: shrir → elig
Will do in the next few days. firstname.lastname@example.org, given your successes in making flash problems appear, please feel free to give it a whirl and add your thoughts.
I see this problem only at <http://www.nin.com/pgs/randomgrid.html>. I'll attach the page source so somebody can look at it and see if there's something besides Flash that's causing the problem. The SWF is at <http://www.nin.com/flp/ randomgrid.swf>. Other pages with Flash content loaded fine (although I noticed a problem where the animations would run, pause for a while, then run again, then pause, etc.). If someone can look at the above URL and verify that a gray box does appear over the right half of the animation, I won't feel so stupid :)
Whoops. Also saw this at <http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/welcome/>. Can't view page source from within Mozilla (I think Mozilla won't load the page source when there's data on the page handled by a plugin - I saw this at nin.com too and have seen it while testing QT plugin earlier this week). oddcast.com crashed (I tried three times) so I can't verify with that.
OS: Mac System 8.6 → Mac System 9.0
I believe this bug is too general (there's a variety of Flash problems that are either A) already filed in a different bug report or B) deserve their own attention/more/specific/new bug report. So, while playing with Flash, I'm going to dump my problems in here (a little like a bug grab bag) that can be later pulled out and filed in their own separate report (if they're found to be actual problems. If this is bad, pls. let me know.
That said, Mozilla M16 2000042010, Mac OS 9.0.4 Everytime I load http://www.oddcast.com/, the page loads, the SWF loads and the content displays. However, somewhere between the intro animation and the display of the actual content of the page, I am routed to a page saying that I need to download the Flash player (after the Flash content has already loaded). Then, the browser crashes (hard - I have to restart). Attaching a StdLog of the oddcast crash. This is with the Flash 4.0r27 plugin that's included with the precompiled nightly binaries.
I agree that this bug should be closed out, and separate issues split into other bug reports. The only problem in this bug report I can reproduce (using yesterday's Mozilla build, 4.0r27 Flash plug-in on Mac OS) is that the Flash animation <http:// www.macromedia.com/shockwave/welcome/> only displays (most of) the bottom third. The remainder of the animation is a grey box. Shrirang & Andrei: does an existing bug not already cover the root cause of this problem? If one doesn't, I'd be happy to split off a new bug report for it.
I'm closing out this bug report, per chat with shrirang, and Adam's comments. * <http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/welcome/> -> I see gray areas, but it otherwise looks okay. Split out into 37126.
* http://www.geocities.com/tokyo/bay/9072/scaled.html -> Split into bug #37137.
* http://www.oddcast.com crash -> split out into 37145. CC'd akay.
Mac-specific stuff taken care of. Just have the NIN thing...
* NIN Flash animation's failure to procede beyond "Click Here" ---> bug #37162.

To the best of my knowledge, every remaining issue in this bug report has been split out. I'm thus verifying it as fixed. akay/et al, if there are additional issues that I've missed, please don't hesitate to file them as new bug reports in the 'Plug-ins' component. Thanks!
