That's with openSUSE's MozillaFirefox-4.0b11-2.2.x86_64 and flash-player-

If one goes to 

the Flash page is nicely rendered, however, if one moves over the country names (buttons), those are painted white. And the boxes which appear, when one clicks on those buttons also show redraw problems. Cf. attached screenshot.

If one forces a redraw, e.g., by moving away to another tab and back, the result is OK again. Worked also with Firefox 3.6 w/o problems.

The same problem can be observed on other sites with interactive Flash, while most simpler Flash such as Youtube work.
Tobias, does this work with the latest Minefield?

I didn't use Minefield, but I have now updated to MozillaFirefox-4.0b12-197.1.x86_64.rpm, which as b12 was tagged yesterday, should be new enough.

Using b12, the situation has much improved, but it still not completely right. Moving with the mouse over those country-name buttons (w/o clicking) still leaves them as white rectangles (cf. attachment), however, if the mouse pointer leaves the area of the Flash plugin, Flash redraws.

If one clicks a button, the button is - after releasing the mouse - also drawn correctly in the down state; but if one now moves out of the button, it is drawn again as white rectangle.

Regarding boxes, which pop up when clicking: One sees a large white rectangle flashing up, but then the box is usually drawn correctly. However, in particular, if an already enabled button is clicked again, the box has a similar drawing problems as the attachment 514616 [details] shows: The bottom part of the box is covered by a white rectangle.
