After opening about 8-10 pages, the interface and web page contents become transparent (the program is on-screen yet still shows the contents of my desktop or any underlaying applications), however parts of the interface (buttons, scroll bars) will reappear if mouseover and when scrolling down the page, parts of the web page reappear). This occurs from opening the new window, adding to the certain amount of the existing ones - closing any one of the windows, mozilla continues to function normally. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open mozilla 2. load the thread in the forum 3. "open link in new window" for each page of the thread until the symptoms are evident (8-10 pages) Actual Results: incomplete or no rendering of interface and web page being displayed, using mouseover on screen elements or scrolling the page will make parts reappear
Reporter (Alan): Can you reproduce this bug with a recent build of Mozilla (for example, 1.3a)? If so, then please comment again with details. If not, then please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks.
i was able to reproduce this under mozilla 1.3A using exactly the same procedure task manager reports the mozilla exe using approx 40~46MB mem
There used to be a Windows specific GDI resource issue with older versions of Mozilla, which has since been fixed. That used to result in the symptoms described above. Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest nightly (or even 1.5)? If not, this bug can be closed. Thanks.
I was able to reproduce the problem again on 1.5 final.
Hmm. That site requires a login -- reporter, do you see this problem with some other site as well (not requiring registration)? If so, please specify that as well. Do you see this problem when opening up 8-10 tabs in a single window, or opening up 8-10 windows? Also, please specify your machine specs -- processor / amount of memory /vid card manufacturer / vid card driver version. Thanks.
This has happened at other forums with large amounts of images (eg, forum threads with large screendumps of games, desktops etc). I have yet to encounter this on normal sites, however I have never reached the point where this happens when viewing normal web sites. This happens with many windows open, it varies on the amount of content in each page open. Specs are: AMD Athlon 3000+, 512MB memory, 128mb powercolor radeon 9700, catalyst 3.8. When initally reported, it was using a 64MB triplex gf4 ti4200 with detonator 40 series (cant recall the specific version)
