Description

18 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.12-20 i686; en-US; m18) Gecko/20000802
BuildID:    2000080214

The page does not display at all. Some areas are red, others are another color
but do not update (to blank) as other windows are moved over them. Viewing the
page using galeon instead of mozilla crashes it consistently.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Go to www.anp.nl

Actual Results:  Mozilla displayed:

To the left and the right a red area
In the middle a grey area
Between the middle and the left a smaller area showing some content from the
last page viewed.

Dragging other windows over the grey area and the smaller area showed:

- The smaller area did not update at all, i.e. still showed the content of the
dragged window
- The grey area sometimes became grey, and sometimes showed the last displayed
page, depending on the direction I was dragging the window.

Rightclicking on the various areas yielded strange results:

the red area to the left and right: Works correctly, showing the 'open frame in
new window' item
the middle area: Shows the menu you'd get on a page without frames
the smaller area: ignores the click

Expected Results:  It should have shown the page, or at least display something
that is rendered the same consistently, independent of windows dragged over it.

Note that opening the frames in separate windows does show them.

I agree, layout - probably frameset layout problem.  Moving this list from
Clayton's list...  :)

Not very sure, but this bug might partially be a duplicate of bug 5569. That bug
is about something like this happening on pages containing frames, the content
of which can't be loaded.
