User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0b; Windows 98) Build Identifier: I've noticed on many Xangas that occasionally when loading certain types of webpages, they will render properly, and then simply go white when I try to scroll. Usually, on the Xangas, this does not happen instantly, and only seems to happen with ones that have songs in teh background, and will occur anywhere from as soon as the song starts to thirty seconds into it. I would normally attribute something like this to simple bad web programming, but given A. The fact that the webpage loads properly, and B.This problem also happened on this very bugzilla report form to me earlier today (though I can't be sure if it's from the same cause, because the bugzilla problem only happened once, while the Xanga one was consistent). I believe it has a direct connection with embedded music files on Xanga, though I can't be entirely sure. Additionally, I noticed when I went to the comments pages on many of these Xangas, the comments box would shift over to the right side of the screen, and stay there, allowing me to type in the box but not to click on the submit button. My text would continue off of the page as well, so I had no idea what I was typing for sure. I KNOW it's not a Gecko problem, as Firefox on PC works just fine with it (the Mac version has problems, though) and I know it is not a problem with ALL Macs, as Omniweb and iCab have no problems. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to the site. 2.Wait for the song to load, and sometimes play for 10-30 seconds or so. 3.Scroll. Actual Results: The pages 'wiped themselves out.' They just turned white. When I went to another tab and came back, the pages looked fine again, but when I tried to scroll, they would white out again. Interestingly enough, though, sometimes certain background images would stay while the rest of the site's content would vanish. Expected Results: Not only properly render the pages, but allow them to continue working fine.

> Firefox on PC works just fine with it (the Mac version has problems, though) So Firefox on Mac has the same problem?
these all work fine for me with 082. does firefox have the same problem?
These also work fine for me with the 02/27 nightly (haven't upgraded yet). Are you using a nightly? If so, which one?
All working fine for me with the latest nightly, too.
It occured for me on Firefox last I checked. I do know that this has been a recent regression in Camino. At least a fairly recent one. I went back to the January 31st nightly and it works brilliantly. I'll be staying there for awhile, I suppose.
Both sites work and scroll fine in the 3/21 nightly.
Well, I've upgraded once again to the latest nightly and it still will load sites properly, and then will stop working after a little while (generally some time after songs have loaded in the background, so I'm guessing it's a direct connection to this specific plugin.) Additionally, I've noticed that the websites work fine in Webkit browsers, but the songs don't load.
Do you have the WMP (Windows Media) plugin installed?
Yes. That was not the problem. Installing WMP simply allows Webkit-based browsers to play the sound and video. Camino, being Gecko, could already do that, and having the plugin installed did not affect it. I've had other people confirm this issue with me on the forums. This is definitely a real Mac Gecko browser issue. I cannot think of any other possible explanation. The website AND the embedded file render perfectly, and the sound plays fine. It's not until a few seconds later that the site erases itself when scrolling, usually. I've changed the main instance URL. That's where I'm finding the problem now. The main site previously listed is outdated.
I *do not* have WMP installed, and the page loads/scrolls without any erasing for me, 20050327 0.8+ (The song on the page is an .asf file, which will not play without WMP) What version of Camino are you using? I do think this is a duplicate of bug 272699, though.
