Closed Bug 293234 Opened 18 years ago Closed 17 years ago
Animated GIFs sometimes freeze when going back or forward with bfcache
Reproducable: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to about:config and set browser.sessionhistory.max_viewers to 1 2. Restart the browser 3. Go to http://forums.mozillazine.org/ 4. Click on "View posts since last visit" link near the top of the page 5. Right-click one of the animated page images near the left side of the window and select View Image 6. Click the Back button twice 7. Click the Forward button twice Expected Results: The animated page GIF is displayed and animates Actual Results: The animated page GIF is displayed but is frozen This problem also occurs with all pages that contain animated GIFs, not just when viewing GIFs in isolation. Reloading the page will restart the GIFs. I'm using Mozilla trunk build 2005050605 on Windows XP SP2.
Your bug summary says "sometimes", but it always happens. You click a link on a page with an animated GIF, press Back, and the GIF doesn't animate anymore. This is with "blazingly fast back/forward" enabled, of course.
(In reply to comment #1) > Your bug summary says "sometimes", but it always happens. Actually, I wasn't able to come up with a 100% reliable way of reproducing the problem. Oops, comment #0 should read "Reproducable: Sometimes". If you have a foolproof way of making the problem occur, please post the steps.
As it was hard to find, I´ll attach it: the animated gif you are searching for at Mozillazine forums. The steps to repeat were also missing to tell you need to login.

I really dont want to bugspam, but can we get this priority set above "minor"? 1.1 couldn't go live to the masses with a bug like this - a lot of forumers will find their experiences somewhat "broken" and that might have an impact on recruitment, if you will.
I definitely agree. Most webpages portals etc have banners

I don't think that bfcache is going to be activated until all annoying bugs caused by it (like this one) are fixed.
