(M13 of 27th Jan, Linux i686, standard binary with full circle) On loading the url above (http://webreview.com/wr/pub/1999/06/18) the following happens: 1) the usual content loads ok 2) then the ad iframes start loading, at this point the standard content is destroyed (grey background with a few pieces from original) 3) the ad iframes finish loading, but the rest of the page is trash.
Reassigning to Eric.
If you resize the window does the page paint itself correctly? I'm not seeing this bug on today's build (Solaris, will try Linux later). However, when scrolling up and down or moving windows in front of the browser on this page, not all of the regions are repainting correctly. It would be great if you could reduce this page to a minimal test case that still had the problem! :)
I thought I'd sent a comment before I sent the test case. But apparently not. So I've tried to make a minimal criminal, as you asked. Loading this on my standard M13 Jan27, i86 linux, gives a glimpse of the correct view, then goes completely blank. Note: 1) removing the <font> tags seems to cure this; 2) the <td> and </form> tags are in the wrong order. Hope this helps.
Oh and in my original comment, I remembered to say that resizing may cause parts of the view to paint ok, but not necessarily all or even any.
Thanks for the minimal test case! (criminal :) ) With today's build, I am able to reproduce the problem that resizing will sometimes not repaint all or even any of the page. It seems that iframes may not have caused this problem since there are none in the minimal criminal. I'll take a look and see if I can figure out what's going on...
This appears to be a GTK only problem, as this testcase paints fine on my Windows box but is unhappy on Solaris. CC'ing some gurus. Pav or Waqar, have you seen this one before?
I have been dealing with these kind of issues for the last two weeks or so. I just test the minimal attachment, using the gfx scrollbars it is hosed, if I resize the page all I get is gray. But if you use native scrollbars the page renders correctly. I this should be passed on to firstname.lastname@example.org since he did the work with gfx scrollbars.
Thanks Waqar, passing to Eric.
Marking verified dup of 20185.
