User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

This looks like a rendering regression in 2.0 since 1.5.   When scrolling the window in 2.0 you'll notice four square white boxes where the text "THIS IS", "ARCHIVES", "CATEGORIES", "FEEDS".  It's smooth in 1.5, and a little jumpy in 2.0

Reproducible: Always

View the page and scroll down and up.

I see it jump both in 1.5.x and in 2.0. In trunk I don't see anything jump, but that's because the whole right hand panel has disappeared :D.
Maybe Martijn knows why it has disappeared and if this is a known bug.
The panel disappeared somewhere in December 2005.
I filed bug 360746 for the issue mentioned in comment 1 (and comment 2).
I actually don't experience this bug.
This bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
