this seems like a previously reported issue, but was it tile caching related?   Flagging to block for investigation, but dupeme if you find it

Let's see if we can do something better with thumbnail generation

I don't see any black thumbnails anymore. Can you reproduce the problem?

Blank thumbnail on Geolocation Test Webpage (
Geolocation test page is actually blank until you do something in the notification. All content is added dynamically, but we only draw the thumbnail once (when first draw fires and network activity is done). Using our current drawing method, it is expected for these thumbnails to be blank.

I'm feeling lucky searches seem to work fine for me.
