User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 On my setup of Mozilla, I have Flash disabled by default. I do this through a script that renames the Flash plug-in DLL, or renames it back again depending on its current state. This means whenever I go to a website that has a Flash clip somewhere on the page, I would get a placeholder for the clip, with 'click here to get the plug-in' with the normal Netscape-y plug-in symbol. If I get a website up with a Flash clip on the page but Flash disabled, then I resize the browser window, the placeholder box for the Flash clip goes black, and I can only see the plug-in symbol in that box, and no text. It doesn't appear to affect the rest of the page being drawn though, and I haven't noticed any other corruptions as a result. I haven't noticed this problem in any of the release candidates of 1.4 or previous, only in the 1.4 release version, that's not to say it definitely wasn't there though :-) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Ok, it isn't always reproducible. One example I've found that it is always reproducible on is www.eidosinteractive.co.uk, with the flash clip placeholder near the top of the page. One example it doesn't work on is any of the Flash clips on www.tomshardware.com. Although on both pages, when the window is resized, the placeholder flashes while the resizing is in motion.
Hmm, also happens on http://rinkworks.com/stupid/ (that is, the placeholder goes black)
Problem appears to be less intrusive in 1.5 release. Now if the window is resized, the box flashes between the desktop background colour and the page background colour. I'm closing this ticket.
