Mozilla seems to sporadically (though quite often) stop updating it's windows properly. Symptoms are: when text is selected, no 'inverting' happens. when menuse are pulled down, the little 'tab' at the top doesn't draw when form buttons/menus/etc are clicked, they don't change to show their new values. the statusbar quits updating for link moseovers, etc. Things that help fix it (temporarily): scrolling (only helps the main pane, not urlbar etc) xrefresh windowshade/unwindowshade all of which would be requesting redraws. so it seems like mozilla knows what to draw, it just doesn't know when it needs to draw it. ChrisM in #smoketest says he could see this on MacOS 9 too, I see it on Debian Linux/PowerPC (potato)
Hmm... after deleting my profile it went away (for a while) but 15 mins later it's back. Just before it started doing this I got a bunch of assertions of the form Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkgc.c: line 288 (gdk_gc_unref): assertion `gc != NULL' failed So it looks like maybe mozilla accidently lost it's gc? I don't see these now (and it's not working) but they got spewed all over just before it broke. Could be that ChrisM was seeing something else entirely...
it looks like maybe I'm wrong about forms and select being the same bug - the forms part of this appears to be a dup of 25258. I haven't seen the selections freak out in a couple of days, so it looks like that got fixed w/o me finding the other bug number. I (as the reporter) am going to mark the remaining issue on this bug as a dup of 25258. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 25258 ***

Rubber-stamping as verified/duplicate, since I haven't seen this issue personally (other than text selection, which is covered by existing bugs.)
