There is a website I use to visit frequently, http://www.movie-masters.de. It's properly displayed in FireBird, however, since the latest nightly-builds, the background-image (two different blue lines, repeated) is not shown anymore. It flashes up quickly, but then I get a white background. The bug is reproducable, doesn't happen with the latest stable release 0.6, but with the latest nightly-trunk (i.e. from July 28th). A fix would be highly appreciated, I guess there are other websites with the problem as well, although I could not see one. By the way, no problems with latest Alpha of Mozilla 1.5 as well - just with FireBird. Thanks! JA Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Surf to the site. 2.See the white background. 3.Hit reload, then you see the background-image flash up shortly, then it's white again. Actual Results: White background, instead of image. Expected Results: A bug-fix would be nice :).
Sev->normal If this is confirmed, it's a bug not an enhancement.
movie-masters.de is a vanity host for http://veryshyguy.covers.de/movmas/. The site in question is coded incorrectly. There's multiple DOCTYPEs, <html> tags, <head> tags, and <body> tags. Worse, they conflict: First <body> tag: <BODY NOF="(MB=(ZeroMargins, 0, 0, 0, 0), L=(indexneuLayout, 1000, 404))" STYLE="text-align: center; background-image: url('./assets/images/mm_backg1.gif');" TOPMARGIN=0 LEFTMARGIN=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0> Second <body> tag: <BODY NOF="(MB=(ZeroMargins, 0, 0, 0, 0), L=(headerLayout, 950, 113))" STYLE="text-align: center; background-image: none;" TOPMARGIN=0 LEFTMARGIN=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0> Recommend resolving as INVALID and referring to tech evangelism.

firstname.lastname@example.org: Why would you think that? If you've narrowed down the range of builds when the problem started, could you give the dates? Somebody who knows more than you about the codebase is likely to be able to make a better guess based on that information.
Also, a flash of the image and then its disappearance is unlikely to be a parser problem.
@email@example.com: Yes, there are multiple <HEAD> and <BODY>-tags inside the source, possibly because of an include or require order, which is of course no excuse for the bad source-code. @David Baron: I am no developer, so all information I can give you is only what I see with my eyes (and what my brain makes up for itself). First of all I wanted to apologize for any inconvenience my report may have been responsible for, as you can see, I'm new to Bugzilla and therefore, I have a lot to learn. So, sorry for not expressing myself in the right way, or worse, claiming things that are not true. :) However, as you requested, I tracked down the build from which on the nightlies do not show the background-image anymore. The latest working nightly is " /pub/firebird/nightly/2003-07-22-23-1.5a ". It does not work anymore with " /pub/firebird/nightly/2003-07-23-08-trunk ". My guess would be, that Firebird interprets the source this way: First it reads that the background-image-tag says "no background" and therefore, it does not draw one. The next background-tag says, there is a background-image an Firebird draws the background. And far more down the source-code reads again, " background-image: none ", so Firebird re-draws the background to ... well, none. This would also explain the flashing. But as I said, this is my guess, I don't actually 'know' that stuff :(. Thank you very much for your patience and your answers, I hope I'm not causing too much trouble. Best regards, JA
Hi! Well, it seems someone from the developers saw the thread, or they changed something else - with the recent release of the nightly-build from August 1st, the bug is no longer present. So I guess we can call it fixed ... or the website has changed something. I changed it to fixed, if someone else has info, or wants to change it again, no objections. Thanks for your time! Best regards, JA
