Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.8.1.12) Gecko/20080201 Firefox/2.0.0.12
Build Identifier: F

When Firefox crashes and a kill -s 9 or -s 15 or a Force Quiet from the Ubuntu System Manager brings up a small random graphic disturbance on all X screens in the same position. The size and color varies. 

If Force Quitted, the spot is larger and often of bluish-grey color. If killall is used, the graphic remainder is more colorful and has a size of approx. 15x10 pix. 

I will link some pics soon.

There is no special act I do before hand, but it does not aalways happen. But it happens more with Force Quiet then with killall or kill.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Force Quiet Firefox
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
Graphic remainder appears.

Expected Results:  
No graphic remainder ;)

The User Agent tag is wrong! Do not use it!
