User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7


Only happens when I have a combination of Fedora Linux, this PIII PC and Mozilla
and Savage S4 card. Does not happen with Opera, but I don't wanna use Opera!



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Savage S4 card.
2.Install Fedora Linux with Gnome
3.Visit www.mozilla.org

Actual Results:  
Graphics goes mad. Spills all over the screen. Pointing cursor at affect areas
"cleans" / refreshes.




It would be easy for one to blame it ALL on the graphics card driver or
Fedora....but Opera works fine......

Do other gtk2-based applications work well?
Can you try with a gtk1/non-xft-build? (just grab a nightly tarball).
Just maybe there's a XRender (xft2 uses xrender) problem with S4, savage support
for XRender is quite new, IIRC..

Some Polish Mozilla also suffer from this bug.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not

Gtk1/xlib widget code has been removed on trunk and this bug doesn't seem
like a branch candidate.
