Sometimes I see Mozilla clear areas of the screen buffer the size of the running
applet, but positioned incorrectly, so as they erase part of the Mozilla toolbar
at the top, or the windows taskbar at the bottom of my screen, or simply other
areas of the loaded webpage. The area is simply cleared to white, seemingly when
the applet re-draws itself.

I can't repro it ever time, but it happens frequently enough to be annoying. I
have a Radeon based card from ATI, and it has the very latest drivers installed,
although Mozilla has been doing this with Applets through many driver revisions.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to that URL (or one with an active/redrawing applet)
2. Move the scroll bars around etc.

Can you reproduce this on a new build?
Could you provide a screenshot?

Mass-closing bugs in the "OJI" component: OJI plugin integration was replaced with npruntime long ago, and these bugs appear to be irrelevant now. If there is in fact a real bug that remains, please file it new in the "Core" product, component "Plug-ins".
