Before 3.6, initial background was white, which agrees with other browsers. As our applet fills the entire browser space, this is highly visible! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. ensure Java plugin is available 2. browse to http://java.sun.com/applets/jdk/1.4/demo/applets/ArcTest/example1.html 3. on a fast machine, you may miss the blink, in which case hit refresh. More obvious on slower machines Actual Results: black background initially, giving a distracting flash Expected Results: white background initially
The black flash also occurs when navigating away from the page!
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.3a4pre) Gecko/20100325 Minefield/3.7a4pre I see this indeed with Firefox 3.6 but it works fine with latest Minefield. Also latest Lorentz with dom.ipc.plugins.enabled to true doesn't have this problem.
