User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040108
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040108

When opening the Mail Window on a Xinerama-configured system with two displays,
moving the window to display 0 will leave the scroll bars and menu bars
transparent, showing whatever windows that lie under the Message Window to show
through.

Moving the Message Window completely to display 1 will restore the transparent bits.

Opening, then closing or moving another window on top of the Message Window
while on display 1 or 0 will cause the transparency problem to reappear.

Occurs on systems running Solaris 8-10, with all known windowing patches applied.

Problem does not exist in 1.3, but does exist in 1.4 to current.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start mozilla on xinerama-configured system.
2.Open Message Window. Window should open at the centerpoint of the two displays.
3.Drag Message Window to display 0

Actual Results:  
Observe scroll bars and menus disapear from Message Window. Underlying window
content shows through.

Expected Results:  
Draw window correctly.

Mark:
Which framebuffer do you use (XVR-1000 ?) ?
OS: SunOS → Solaris

In this case, it's dual-headed SunRays. Don't know exactly how to describe the
framebuffer otherwise.

Just saw similar behavior in 1.6, but in my case it was the message list pane
(top right in the default config).  Also, in my case, moving the window from one
display to another didn't fix it; the only thing that worked was to disable and
reenable the message pane (via View->Show/Hide->Message Pane, and I don't mean
the list pane!)

My system is an Ultra 80 with two ffb2+ (rev. 3) framebuffers, running Solaris 8
07/03, kernel patch 22.

I'm using the Pinball theme from themes.mozdev.org.

I've seen problems like this as well.  I'm not sure how early I first saw it (I
thought it might be a problem with my build), but it certainly exists in 1.7 and
1.8.

Hardware I've seen this with:

Sun Blade 1500 w/ XVR-100 & TechSource GFX-450C
Sun Blade 150 w/ PGX-64 & TechSource GFX-450C
Sun Blade 150 w/ PGX-64 & TechSource GFX-32C
Ultra 5 w/ PGX-24 & TechSource GFX-32C
Ultra 5 w/ PGX-24 & PGX-32 (TechSource Raptor GFX)

These have all been running Solaris 8, with patches that were current at the time.

Oh, and from the builds, I've noticed the following:

checking for XineramaIsActive in -lXinerama... no
checking for X11/extensions/Xinerama.h... no

I'm thinking that this might be significant??

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.

This bug still exists.  We still see:

checking for XineramaIsActive in -lXinerama... no
checking for X11/extensions/Xinerama.h... no

from running configure
