From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; N; PPC; en-US; m18) Gecko/20010105 BuildID: 2001010508 Elements such as banners, imagesm, text blink or flash on/off until the page has fully loaded. I have observed this behaviour with earlier milestones. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: This behaviour occurs only after surfing for a while, 1-2+ hours and when the browser has increased its memory allotment significantly. I observed the blinking/flashing when the browser had a memory allotment of 48mb (not set to this by me, but by memory leaks???). To reproduce this bug, surf for a while and if the memory usage by Mozilla is high (>30-40mb) load www.zdnet.com/zdnn/mac/. Actual Results: The images will flash/blink as the page is loading, almost as if the banner adds are causing other elements to flash on/off as well. Once the page has fully loaded the page appears as intended. Expected Results: This page should load text and images smoothly without flashing on/off. I have 128mb memory and with virtual memory 140mb.

I am seeing this @ the site mentioned by pbersgag. I am using OS 9.0.4 with the same build as the reporter. Changing OS to "Mac System 9.X" Mozilla is using 35.3 MB of memory (I didn't set it that high).
OS: Mac System 8.6 → Mac System 9.x
