User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: unspecified This bug is similar to bug 221604 except that I had no skin on the browser and it never ran without shaking. Fresh install of firefox, first time I open the browser, the screen starts shaking. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open the browser 2. 3. Actual Results: The screen shakes. Expected Results: Work normally and not shake. Again, this bug seems to be exactly similar to bug 221604 except that I had no theme running on firefox, and it was a fresh new install.

With what build are you testing? Go to Help menu, then About Mozilla Firefox. Copy the "Mozilla.." string.

I have encountered the shaking bug (I've seen many reports, I hope this is the right one. I think the situation I have it in may possibly help explain certain cases of this. Essentially, I moved my bookmark toolbar folder (with content initially I think) level with the File, Edit, View ... menu (and before the throbber). Removing the bookmark from there caused the shaking to start. Adding another one stops the shaking. I think this might possibly have something to do with a slightly different size of element and it resizing back and forth. Is there some code that checks it in a loop with two different values? Regards Ian
Ian: that is bug 247116. Clarissa: Is this still visible in Firefox 1.0? Old unconfirmed bugs often don't end up anywhere. If this now works please resolve it as WORKSFORME.
I have the same problem of the flashing screen when I open the browser. I have the current display drivers and version of firefox. I also have my bookmarks mysteriously vanish without a trace. They do this on different openings of the browser. There is no real pattern. They are simply gone.
browser works, but shakes uncontrollably (up and down). it seems like an intermitent symptom, because i first click reload and the problem disappeared momentarily, only to appear again later. when i vist any site, it shakes without warning. since i can't reproduce the problem, i diagnosed it as an intermitent. the only addition information i can provide is: 1. i use windows xp (home edition), 2. i also use the browser internet explorer.
I have also lost all my Bookmarks from Firefox. My screen also shakes when I open a Firefox window. Both these problems started after I got the latest update - 188.8.131.52
1 Open a Firefox browser window and confirm that the content on the page shifts alternately up and down a few pixels as the page is loading. 2 Open the view > toolbars menu. 3 Select the first toolbar that has a check mark next to it. This will remove the checkmark and cause that toolbar to cease being displayed. 4 Refresh your current page, or navigate to a new page, and look for browser shake. If the shake is eliminated, you have found the culprit. 5 Repeat step 4 until all the toolbars have been deselected, or you have found the toolbar causing the shake. 6 Return to the view > toolbars menu to ensure that all non-offending toolbars are turned back on.
I found that an Ver. of Google toolbar did this " the one you D.L. from Google" Not one of Mozzila/Firefox's Extz. But when I removed it My Fox Fever was gone and so was the shakes, There has been an Updated Ver. of Google's Toolbar sense and I've had no Probs with it, But I Also Updated my Nvidia Drivers before instaling the new VER. so That you might want to that first.
