User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040608 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040608 Firefox/0.8 I had a hope that bug 242691 ("Animated gifs do not animate properly") addressed most of problems with GIF animation; however, having downloaded the latest Release Candidate of Firefox (which was 0.9RC), I lost my hope. Animated GIFs still do not animate properly. I know that's what RCs are for, and maybe we'll enjoy 0.9 release with this bug already fixed -- who knows. Be warned: this is a mosty nasty kind of rare bugs, which sometimes happen and sometimes does not happen. A collection (and not too small) of animated GIFs is needed to demonstrate. As with 13th comment to bug 160186, this one bug much easier happens on small animations, rarely happens at bigger animated images. Probably bug 160186 is the same bug, but the case I observed just didn't fit into bug 160186's summary ("animated GIF moves 1px right during animation"), so I'm entering a new bug in the sake or those GIF frames which move to the left (this bug) instead of moving to the right (bug 160186). When debugged, they all anyway will not move anywhere. What example do I have? The guestbook of my own website, where I made all that images myself. Almost every time I can reproduce the problem here. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open http://xbase.ru/guestbook/index.php?id=ud1wv4mxp75ymchxypwwugn6g8uw2gs0&rnd=3791&login=mithgol&design=0&m=0 in your Gecko-based. As for me, I prefer Firefox. 2. You see a typical guestbook form for a guestbook entry, with more than 30 smiles (also known as emoticons). Some of them are animated GIFs. 3. As some frames of animated GIFs display 1-2px right of their expected position, several smiling faces are distorted. Most often (almost every time) these are: 1) a face that yawn; 2) a shocked staring face (the 11th, counting left to right); 3) a face that ROTFL (rolls on the floor laughing). 4. Some GIFs are autofixed when you mouseover them, but broken again in the next animation loop. This effect, however, is not guaranteed. 5. Almost every time every broken GIF is observed fixed when you view it alone (right click --> View Image). That's why a collection of images is needed to demonstrate the bug. Also note that HTML width="15" and height="15" attributes were set according to intrinsic image resolution, so that's not the reason for image to be broken in collection and autofixed when viewed alone. Actual Results: When on webpage, some frames of animated images are moved to the left, without respect to their intrinsic relative coordinates -- maybe, to the left edge of GIF image's canvas? The observed case may indicate frame X coordinate (relative to 0,0 of GIF image's upper left corner) being erroneously zeroed somewhere. When accessed directly by image URL typed in address bar, GIF animation is not broken. Expected Results: Not broken animation is expected. This bug never happens when each frame of animated GIF has the same dimension of the whole image, and when each frame has intrinsic relative coordinates 0,0. However, it is not unusual for a GIF author to reduce filesize by cutting out those parts of frame image which were not modified since previous frame. The two of bugs that seem most related IMHO: bug 242691 -- Animated gifs do not animate properly bug 160186 -- animated GIF moves 1px right during animation
