User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 after entering an image gallery, and opening 50+ images in diferent tabs, with the open in background option, Mozilla fails to update the windows. Only 2 fixes in order to see the content: either resize the window and/or move back and forth in the page. Parts of the page that where not visible refresh without problems. This also affects to the interface, notable the tab bar, the navigation bar, etc etc Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to an image gallery 2.load the images in the background. Load 50+ (better is 100+) images in the background Actual Results: all the mozilla components fail to update the screen correctly, thus neding to force a retraw in order to be able to actualy see the correct information on screen. Ways tested to force the redraw: using some of the pull down menus to cover the screen (like the bookmarks pull down) so what is imediately under it gets refreshed, resizing the window to a smaller size, movin the page up and down, to show parts of it that where not visible before. This is however temporary, since should you ned to refresh again the screen, for example after swapping tabs, you sould for the update again. Mozilla neds to be completely restarted for things to go back to normal Expected Results: normal updates on the screen
I've seen this as well, and not with creation in background. If I open somewhere like 15+ tabs that each have 20-30 thumbnails on them I get the same behaviour. Running WinXP and it not only messes up the redraws on Mozilla, but also on other running programs. It inhibits their redrawing in the same manner.
Dup of the usual "GDI sucks" bug...
The GDI problem has been fixed for a while I think.. Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest nightly (or even 1.7.3)? If not, the bug has probably been fixed and can be closed. Thanks.
Seems fixed in the latest release
No bug / patch specified as the fix. -> WORKSFORME
