User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030916 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030916 This is not specific to the web site listed. When I open a window tab, the browser "edges" will generally begin to flicker, seeming to flick the text and images in the pane up and down by a few pixels, as if it cannot fix to one position or another. As well, this seems to occur if I open a website that has an image larger than the browser's viewing pane. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.a. Middle-click to open a tab from a link -or- 1.b. Open an image larger than the pane of the viewing window Actual Results: In both cases, the browser window will flicker back and forth. This does not affect other open Mozilla windows. In the case of tabbed viewing, closing the tabs does not alleviate the problem; it requires closing that window and opening a new browser window. Expected Results: Mozilla should reposition the viewing window in a fixed position, and then reposition again when the tab is closed. In the case of images, it should open a scroll area to conceal the area of the image beyond the edge of the viewing area, and find a fixed position. I was using the original theme. This is an initial install of Mozilla, though I did have Netscape 7.1 installed prior to this installation.
* I've encountered the same problem with Mozilla 1.5 final, downloaded toady [ Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 ] * the same happens with RC1 that i installed afterwards for testing [ Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030916 ] * I didn't have this problem with any final release before [... using mozilla heavily since 1.1 :-) ...] some more information: - clarification: 'flickering' means that the whole page content (...everything between the mozilla toolbars and statusbar...) gets shifted vertically by one pixel and then snaps back to its original position, quite fast (about 3 or 4 times per second?) - reproduction: pick any mozilla window, press ctrl-t to open a second tab -> already now the 1-pixel bordering line just before the mozilla status bar starts flickering - by closing but the last tab and then using page reload, the flickering most times disappears - It does *NOT* happen on all machines! -> my new 2.66 GHz pentium 4 is affected -> both my old 866 Mhz and my Laptop (700 Mhz) are okay all of them running win2k and using the very same 1.5 build - some graphics info on the system having the problem (in case this helps anything) . hercules 3d prophet 8500 128mb, using DVI output . 1280x1024 resolution with 16bit high color palette please tell me if there is more information i can provide or further tests i can do. regards, martin
After a windows98 low memory crash causing the registry to revert to an earlier copy, I reinstalled window patches and eventually reinstalled mozilla. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Mozilla now flickers (read bounces) when I open a new tab (no page displayed). The best indication is the bottom edge of the frame strobes. I close the tab, the first (and only) page (this page) bounces: bottom edge strobes, text bounces up and down (just enough pixels to reitate) and scrollbar bounces as if trying to alternately finding top and bottom edges. I reload the page, usually the flicker stops. I am uncertain if the windows patches is causing this new behavior, but mozilla performed properly before the crash and I am a heavy tab user.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040502 Firefox/0.8 I'm seeing this on ONE of my boxes. Does it on any page, with or without tabs. Even does it on the default homepage for firefox. What info can I provide to help debug this?
