Disabling IPC and D2D acceleration has no effect. Attaching comparison screenshots. "Bad" is from Trunk build, "good" is from 3.6.7 Beta1.

Yeah, not sure what the issue is here, since loading up this page in FF 3.6.8 reports no errors at all in the Error Console. A refresh of the page in the 08/24 nightly for Firefox 4 returns the following console errors:

Error: assignment to undeclared variable _VINES_RANDOM_IDS

Going to post this on the site's support forum as well so hopefully their devs can take a look. This definitely appears to be JS changes between FF3 and FF4 that's the culprit here though.

Probably I've got the same error on this (german) Page:
http://vid.buffed.de/v/tHeI18ASW2E/buffedShow/buffedShow-207/

With FF 4 beta 4 and 5 (not tested earlier beta-versions) instead of showing the Flash-Video there's only a white Flash-frame.

Expected:
First this side shows a short add-video an then the main-video.

It workes in FF 3.6 and any other browser. When testing make sure you don't try to block adds, since this may interfere with the add-video.

http://media.giantbomb.com/media/vine/js/base_10031.js  starts with "use strict";

Maybe same as Bug 607188. and Tech Evangelism .
