Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b2pre) Gecko/2007113013 Firefox/3.0b2pre (Swiftfox)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b2pre) Gecko/2007113013 Firefox/3.0b2pre (Swiftfox)

When two sites have different zoom factors Firefox 3.0 beta/trunk first re-draws old page with very strange and irritating way before opening new site.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Meke new profile and set
security.warn_entering_secure;true
security.warn_leaving_secure;true
(only to stop loading in the middle to see better)

2. Open some site, ex. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewforum.php?f=23

3. Zoom in couple if times

4. Open some https-site with no zoom or lesser zoom
ex. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/

Actual Results:  
When Firefox starts to load new sitem on can clearly see that it:
1. Draws a smaller frame to open windows
2. After OK fills that frame wit smaller text fro, old page
3. After that draws new page

Expected Results:  
Firefox should draw new page without those extremely irritating steps between pages.

Included are 3 pictures:

Maybe some thing happens in Windows also, but so fast that normally one can not see it (2 pictures):

Confirming that this happens on recent trunk. For some reason, I'm only able to reproduce this behavior with a new profile.
