As a test, I changed my 'View'->'Message Body As'->'Plain text' to 'Original HTML' now the flash up page is the last viewed html message I looked at. Looks like a cache is failing somewhere and not being marked as invalid. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Close all tabs 2. Open a message Actual Results: Flash of last HTML formatted page. Normally the Welcome screen Expected Results: No flash of page, just the message
Confirmed here on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11pre) Gecko/20091006 Lightning/1.0pre Shredder/3.0pre ID:20091006032243 but I think it is deliberate: I suppose that is how say "wait loading of message in progress"... otherwise you should see a blank page. I think that this message should be closed as invalid.
You should never see a flash of an image which you never get a chance to fully read. Like I mentioned in the report you get a flash of the last message which was rendered in HTML format. What happens if the message is of personal nature and the next time you read an email another party is watching? This is most defiantly a bug and will force me back to version 2 if not properly addressed.
Aureliano, et al: I see you marked my Bug no. 541711 as a duplicate of this one. However, my issue had nothing to do with a flash of the welcome screen. Only that when I open an email, the one previously opened comes up on the screen of a brief time. Is it the same? I'm not sure based on the description here. best, david
Hi David. Underlying problem is the same.
And will it be fixed?
Is this a duplicate of bug 505446?
(In reply to comment #9) > Is this a duplicate of bug 505446? Probably very similar
Depends on: 505446
almost certainly fixed in Bug 787475.
