Entire window is black with hardware acceleration enabled on Linux
Just updated to the latest linux64 nightly, and the entire client area of the window is black. The window has borders, and resizing doesn't make any difference (not even any flickering). Using the following build: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.2a1pre) Gecko/20110409 Firefox/4.2a1pre (Built from http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/7d90da136b2c) With layers.acceleration.force-enabled set to true. Graphics driver: NVidia 270.29 Graphics card: Quadro FX 880M
Same here using the 32 bit version of today's nightly: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:6.0a1) Gecko/20110413 Firefox/6.0a1 Graphics driver: nVidia 260.19.06 Graphics card: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce GTS 250] (rev a2)
I forgot to check again before I upgraded my graphics drivers, but everything is working again with the latest beta driver from NVidia (270.41.03).
(In reply to comment #2) > I forgot to check again before I upgraded my graphics drivers, but everything > is working again with the latest beta driver from NVidia (270.41.03). Er, sorry, ignore this - I accidentally ran an old build. 270.41.03 still exhibits a totally black window on the latest nightly (20110414).
This was fixed in a follow-up to bug 640082.

That bug was fixed 2 days ago and using today's nightly I still can reproduce this (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:6.0a1) Gecko/20110414 Firefox/6.0a1). In fact, if I enable it my menu's turn black before I even restart. Clicking the menu and tooltips still work as expected. I don't think this bug is fixed.
Reopening so it doesn't get lost. If the other bug is committing to a branch or something, let me know.

Confirming: bug still present on latest nightly (same build as comment 5).
Apologies, I thought we had verified this as fixed by the previous patch. This fixes the problem for me, hopefully this was the only issue.

Confirming fixed for me (Nvidia 260.19.06). Is there a tracking bug for getting layers acceleration enabled by default on Linux? There are still a few visual glitches, but autoscrolling gets so much faster!
Also fixed for me
