Representation error in Pivot View
(Firefox :: Theme, defect)
(Reporter: reg, Unassigned)
(Whiteboard: Need a pivot display)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0 I have two monitors on my computer, one of it works in pivot mode. When I move Firefox to the pivot screen (fullscreen), there are some representation errors. Have a look at: http://christian-koewing.de/FF4.png Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Pivot-Display 2. Firefox 4 in fullscreen http://christian-koewing.de/FF4.png
When I put my mouse cursor over a link (hover) as long as the tooltip is displayed, the representation is corrected until I move the cursor back of the link. It seems to be, that this effect only happens the first time i have moved my cursor over a link on a site. Also in web-forms the effect occurs, if you want to select a stored default value for a field. In this case, it is extremely disturbing since firefox constantly changes between incorrect and correct representation. The black pixel line on bottom will always be shown, but is not needed.

Reporter -> Are you still experiencing this issue with the latest version of Firefox 4?
Version: unspecified → 4.0 Branch
Yes, i have firefox 4 installed (firefox says that i have the latest version, dialog: about firefox).
In the meantime I have reinstalled my operating system and upgraded to Firefox 5, but the problem still exists! Does no one use Firefox with a Pivot-Display? I can't use the context menu because it flickers all the time. The error is really annoying, please take care of it.

Have a look @ ... Flicker: http://screencast.com/t/msdgfKsigom Border: http://screencast.com/t/gbC0YdGyc Interesting was that the upper border has disappeared at the beginning of the screencast recording. Also, I've noticed that I must often double and triple click on a link, until it opens, when I open multiple links at the same time. It seems as if there would be a delay. My mouse will work fine in all other programs.
The flicker bug also occurs on tab and button context menus.
