From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m18) Gecko/20001204 BuildID: 2000120404 mozilla covers the rendering of the current page with an image of the previously visited page. It does it fairly well, though. Maybe a tad on the slow side. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: not entirely sure.... Open first page browse to second page hit back, immediatly alt tab out to another program come back after new page has loaded Actual Results: Mozilla loads the first page, but then displays an image of the previous page, over top of the current page (you can actually see it replace the second page with an image of the first). Links, forms, image rollovers, etc all still work on the second page, but not the ones from the first page. Expected Results: Expected it to just show the second page, obviously. I can't reliably reproduce this problem, it's only happend twice. On the other hand, the affected window would always draw that same image even after you'd followed another link. Oh, and it only affected that one window, all my other windows were fine. The only other odd thing was that I had the font up to 120%, because the I'd had to read some small type in the page just before I went back, and triggered the bug. I'm not sure this makes much difference though. I'm not sure why this bug is so hard for me to reproduce, I think there's a timing issue. Kinda hard for me to duplicate things on a connection like mine, every time is different.

Oooh, I did it again. I even got a couple of screen shots! This time was different though. I'd been reading an HTML file locally, then a little while later, I established an internet connection, and set off to see what was on slashdot, by way of a bookmark on my personal toolbar, no back button invloved.
Created attachment 20911 [details] first of two, note how scrolling reveals what's beneath the image.
Created attachment 20913 [details] and the second. This one shows the cool way selecting text redaws elements.
Win 98, build 2000121804: Although I can't reproduce this, I do consistently see that when moving back and forward through the history, the initial page loaded in that session always briefly flashes in the browser window before the proper page is loaded. This may be related? Leaving as unconfirmed.
Marking NEW so someone can figure this out. I have no idea.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
I see this fairly often. Cc'ing Dan, I vaguely recall him saying something like "and there's an embarrassing refreshing problem..."

I just saw this on build 2001012720 win32 : I opened Moz for the first time after a reboot, which opened www.mozilla.org. I then opened another URL http://www.swiss-surnames.org/vol/sherlock.htm and when switching windows, the image of mozilla.org appeared. After reloading the page it no longer did it.
Is this still a problem? I can not reproduce with todays build on WINNT.
