Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; da; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; da; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

I enter some text in the findbar and close it, then I open it again and make
another search. Second time it doesn't search, and when I move the cursor, every
thing blanks out like on the screenshot. I still can surf and use the menus, but
I can't see them. The only way to get "the look" back is to restart the browser.
I tried to search a page, go to another page, go back to the first page, and
make a search, but the browser still removed all "the look".

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press Ctrl + F and search something
2. Close the findbar
3. Press Ctrl + F and try to make a new search
Actual Results:  
All "the look" disapears like on the screenshot:

Expected Results:  
Firefox should be able to search the same page more than one time eache session.

Using the default firefox 1.0 english installer on fedora core 3.

Well, it seams like the bug doesn't "work" if "the two searches" aren't made in
the same tab.

Sorry, I don't get any dialogs at all. I even tried to run firefox from a
terminal, but it didn't write anything. Ofcource when I tries to restart firefox
to get "things" back, it asks me if I realy wants to close all these tabs, but I
don't think I've got a choice.

Hmmm just found out that the bug still "works" if I make new firefox users, but
it doesn't work if I open firefox as another linux user.
But still I've got this bug before in the 1.0pre, which had as an rpm...

I'm getting exactly the same using Linux Debian (3.1) and :
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050110 Firefox/1.0
(Debian package 1.0+dfsg.1-2)

The browser doesn't crash, but the menu and toolbar areas go white when the
mouse hovers over them, and don't display anything.  They are still usable tho,
ie, not locked.

If anyone wants more feedback, debugging, please let me know.

I've tried uninstalling + reinstalling, new user prefs etc etc, but can't get it
to go!

Confirmed on "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050517
Firefox/1.0.4 (Debian package 1.0.4-2)" and quite annoying. I can't figure out
why it only happens for me and not for any other user - I tried "rm -rf
~/.mozilla" but it still happens.

This bug is really annoying me, and I can replicate it any time.  Can someone
let me know what I would need to do in order to progress this?

Thanks

Do you have any talkback ID?
Or can you try the latest trunk build? (Check out the Mozillazine forum
