User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 I'll be happily surfing along and suddenly I'll open a page or tab (it usually seems to be one containing a large number of small images) and suddenly everything goes haywire. Window borders, check boxes and some images turn black. Small fonts start displaying as larger fonts. From then on, nearly any page or tab I go to starts to have the same problem, until I exit Mozilla completely and start it again. That resolves it - at least until I go to some other page that sets it off again. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: I can't reliably reproduce it. http://www.tigerdirect.com was the first page I noticed it happened, but often I can go there with no problems. I was just doing an image search on google and it happened... then I exited Mozilla, restarted and now I can do the same image search with no problem. Very puzzling. Actual Results: See summary. No error was given. Hardware configuration is an HP Pavilion, PIII 750 MHz w/256MB RAM, KDS XTreme Flat XF-7b 17" monitor, onboard NVIDIA Vanta video. It is possibly noteworthy that this same computer/monitor dual boots to Red Hat Linux 9, and I run Mozilla 1.2.1 under Linux and do not have this problem.
Have you tried clearing the cache?
Same problem here... it appears seemingly randomly that after a while of surfing the fonts mix up (they also change when highlighted), and some windows icons (like e.g. the one of explorer), as well as the icons in the browser (like "back", "bookmarks", etc.) become black. The problem is difficult to reproduce but happened 3-4 times to me (Win 98SE, ATI Rage Fury Pro 2000 graphics card). Immediately after closing Mozilla the problem disappears.
(P.S.: This descriptions refers to Mozilla 1.4; I have never seen a similar behaviour in earlier versions.)
Glad to know it isn't just me. And I haven't noticed this behavior in earlier versions (on Windows) either. Oliver, I have cleared my cache, though I don't think that will help, it's a pretty recent install. I'll report back on the results.
Set browser.cache.memory.capacity to 4096 or 2048 (integer) in about:config as a workaround *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 204374 ***
