Can't see a dupe for this... In recent nightlies in Windows XP, the toolbars do a quick "jump" when you first go to load a page in a freshly-opened browser. It seems to affect both the bookmarks and navigation toolbars, as well as the tab bar if multiple (blank) tabs are open. To reproduce this, set your start page as blank, so it doesn't automatically go to a page upon opening. Then open a bookmark or go to a url. You should see the toolbars distort very briefly before the page starts drawing. The symptoms don't occur in a fresh window if you've already visited sites in another window. You have to close the browser and start afresh to reproduce it. However the symptoms do occur if you do things like open more (blank) tabs before loading your first page. It only seems to care that it's the very first page being loaded. Reproduced with the latest Win XP nightly. Doesn't seem to be an issue in Mac OS X builds, though. Sorry I can't pinpoint this more closely. I only use Windows at work, and don't have the ability to maintain a heap of nightly builds there. It seems to be pretty recent, though.

Yes, I see this also. It has been discussed on the forum: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=1664744#1664744 It still worked fine in this build: 2005080703
I can also confirm that it still shows symptoms using a fresh profile, having completely erased the old application directory before installing the latest Deer Park nightly.
regressed from bug 253661 ?
The given testcase did not work, however after reading on mozillazine, I found that boxerboi had to click on the home icon to reproduce this. Sure enough, that's what I had to do. If anyone else is having problems reproducing this, try clicking on the home icon. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050810 Firefox/1.0+ ID:2005081004

With a fresh Profile, the "jumping" stopped for the same url after the second (successful) try. Naturally always did a restart of Fx after the "jumping". (Perhaps didnt give the 1. try enough time to load completely...) Anyway, after deleting the Browser Cache, "jumping" for that url was back again. So Cache (and its setings) may be involved somehow.

Here is perhaps a different way to reproduce this (if we are talking about the same behavior)- I always hide the bookmarks toolbar and drag the actual bookmarks up next to the help menu (and homepage is about:blank). If you do this you see bar that starts with file, and the bar that starts with the left arrow, move down by about one pixel as the window is first opening. Each time you press ctrl-N it does it.
Comment 7 sounds a bit different, although maybe they share the same underlying cause. Cass, do you know when your symptoms first began? In a recently trunk nightly?
All, this will be fixed very soon! Please see 304394 as i've documented the cause of the issue and a solution you can implement yourself in userChrome.css. Throbber smobber!!! ~B

This also resolves the issue one see's when ALT-tabbing between the bookmark manager and FF while both are maximised (you'll see what looks like menubar jumping between the two). Just a little bit of polish thrown in! ~B

Comment on attachment 192776 [details] [diff] [review] One additional tweak to fix horizontal padding... I couldn't apply the patch using the file. I updated my menu.css manually and it solved the problem. Thanks for working on this. Can you attach a patch that applies to the branch for posterity? Thanks!
