Checked and re-checked system preferences settings for errors--none detected. While still a relative novice, I know many people are light-decades beyond me(see Build Indentifier above). I work here every day, so I tend to notice changes. As to all that code-thingy, um, well,... you know. I'm like a chimp with a broken crayon trying to type Shakespeare on a Royal in the rain on a Sunday afternoon. Baseline: It's different somehow--slower/'jerky.' If I noticed, those smarter than me probably did as well. Thanks. Love your work(s). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Call up IMDb 2. Attempt to scroll to bottom of page via touchpad/mouse.("Apple" key + "pg dn" key hesitates, but DOES leap to bottom). 3. Clear all caches; re-start Firefox; See Step 1. 4. Loop. 5. Re-start iBook. 6. See Steps 1 through 3 7. Check System Preferences; Check Firefox Preferences. 8. Settings okay; abherent behavior still detected. 8a. Complete shut down. One hour away. Re-boot. 8b. See Steps 1 through 8. 9. Contact Mozilla/Bugzilla; cite issue(s). 10. Wait. 11. All issues resolved in next up-date install. 12. Send 'thank you.' Actual Results: None as yet. Issue still unresolved. Expected Results: Smooth scrolling, no hesitation in 'slide-bar.' No crash; all other software and sub-systems are nominal, i.e. 'five by five, and a mile wide.' Completely satisfied with EVERY Mozilla construct, but the scrolling issue is system/software universal. Oop. Nope. Haven't checked off-line word-processing. May only be Internet propriatery. Will check and report later.
This is a bit worrisome, because the change to Halloween involved bringing xul scrollbars to OSX. If this is not going to work for OSX and fx2, then I will revert the changes for my themes. The changes that were made were based on changes to the Firefox 3 beta 5: both OSX and Win/*NIX sue xul scrollbars. But I thought this was possible due to changes in OSX. Does anyone know the answer? OSX change or fx3 change? This bug is important because if there is a similar performance hit in fx3, we might have a problem with more than my themes.
A user with a Mac tested Halloween 2.6 on fx 188.8.131.52. She found problems with the xul scrollbars on digg.com. The xul scrollbars work fine with 3b5 and digg.com. I will update Halloween to be compatible with both fx2 and fx3.
