Description

Created attachment 534734 [details]
screenshot

See attached screenshot. I don't have any useful info to offer about how I got into this situation, but I can poke at the browser if you'd like.

Clicking on one of the tabs in the Panorama view and then returning to Panorama causes the tab to change to a correct thumbnail.

Did it happen after you start Fx and then went into Panorama?

I had been running Fx for a while, but that may have been the first time I entered Panorama.

Comment 3

i'm seeing this too. What could be of relevance is that I'm running FF with browser.sessionstore.max_concurrent_tabs = 0, although the issue does not affect not-yet-loaded tabs (they're just blank), so maybe not...

Comment 4

I have this problem too. I first noticed it on May 20, running Nightly on 64 bit windows 7.

When I go to panorama view, the tab I'd been looking at always gets a proper thumbnail, at least at first.

Some other thumbnails are often correct, but tend to go wrong when I resize the tab groups such that the thumbnails' sizes changes too. During the resize, a bunch of tabs' thumbnails will all change to one tab's thumbnail. If I keep resizing, usually that same bunch of tabs will switch, together, to a different tab's thumbnail. I haven't recognized a pattern for which tab's thumbnail is used.

I tried to reproduce in in safe mode. I haven't seen it go wrong while in safe mode, but it will show the wrong thumbnails for inactive tab groups, if they were already wrong before I restarted into safe mode. In safe mode, the thumbnails get fixed during normal usage, resizing, etc.

Back in not-so-safe mode, I disabled all my extensions, and still see the same bad thumbnails.

I just noticed something weird - the thumbnails always seem to get corrected when they are more than 148 pixels wide.

This may have been fixed, recently. I only just noticed that I haven't been able to reproduce it with today's nightly (build id http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/c72829d9cb2b).
Just tested with Nightly and indeed this is fixed. Hopefully this fix comes Aurora very soon?

This is standard fare for me also (running Aurora). Makes the thumbnails rather irrelevant, since often the same thumbnail will be stretched across 6 or more tabs, so it's impossible to know which one you actually want from the thumbnail.

This bug was on the beta when I just installed it now (in addition to aurora and nightly, as people have said). I've been able to reproduce on 32 & 64 bit windows builds, but not on my Mac Nightly.

Thanks very much for that information! There are indeed some basic Panorama changes in the given commit ranges. Will investigate further.

Which steps did you use to reproduce this bug? I couldn't reproduce it so far with the nightly versions you mentioned above...

Comment 26

Well, there is some unknown component to it, because I haven't been able to do it with a fresh profile, but I can't make it go away by disabling add-ons or plugins, either. But for me, on this profile, it's quite easy. I just start the browser (usually I already have a bunch of open tabs, but I may have to open some if I do not).  I go to the panorama view, and re-size a tab group until the thumbnails are fairly small ( < 148 pixels wide ) and that's when they will all change to the same thumbnail.

Comment 27

6 years ago
Correction: I just did another set of quick tests and I can see the bug happening with a fresh profile, but not in safe mode (fresh profile or otherwise).

Comment 28

6 years ago
When I was talking about "disabling add-ons or plugins" I was referring specifically to eliminating things from my profile during normal use in not-so-safe mode.

I just ran through all the 5 safe-mode options, after backing up my profile,

disable all add-ons
reset toolbars and controls
delete all bookmarks except for backups
reset all user preferences to nightly defaults
restore default search engines

and none of those work around the bug, but actually continuing in safe mode does.

Comment 29

6 years ago
After doing a diff between about:support in and out of safe mode, I saw direct2d and directwrite are off in safe mode and "GPU accelerated windows" goes from "1/1 direct3d10" to "0/1" in safe mode.
So as an experiment, I set gfx.direct2d.disabled to true, and the bug went away in normal mode. If I flip that back to false, the bug doesn't happen again until I restart the browser.

Here is my about:support Graphics section, from when the bug was happening:

The same is true for me; setting Direct2d.disabled to true corrected my thumbnail behaviour.

That is indeed very helpful. Do you have any errors/messages in the error console when experiencing this issue?

Comment 32

No, I didn't encounter anything on the error console either when entering/exiting Panorama, resizing groups with duplicated thumbnails or moving tabs between groups (which, incidentally, temporarily fixes their thumbnail).

This issue is reproducible for me also on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110905 Firefox/9.0a1

If I minimize the tab group, all the tabs are the same like in the attachment from the description.

I can also reproduce this bug in Firefox Beta 7, on Windows 7.
BuildID:  http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-beta/rev/d70ed894123a

This is a very annoying bug from a user's perspective and is highly visible.  My personal opinion, from a user's standpoint, is that this needs prompt attention and should not ship in Firefox 7 Final.

I understand that opinions should stay out of bug reports, but felt the need to express mine here.

Thank you.

What is the timing expectation for correcting this bug?  As I mentioned in comment 35, it is highly visible and very annoying from a user's perspective.  Something so forward-facing, IMHO, should get a fairly high priority.
I think it's too late to get this in for Firefox 7. Can we track this for fixing in either Firefox 8 or 9?

Interesting, this bug was filed before Azure was in the tree. So I'm not sure how the original bug is related to the current bug we're tracking and such.

The bug also disappears by flipping the pref "gfx.direct2d.disabled". So maybe it's not an Azure but a D2D issue?

That will actually also disable Azure. So it sounds like the last report does point at Azure.

Comment 9 and comment 10 indicate that this was fixed at some point and reoccurred, so it may be that the new instance of this bug has a different root cause than the original.

Ah, this is pretty interesting, considering I probably copy-pasted the old canvas implementation to Azure when this bug existed. If we know what fixed it in the old canvas implementation that fix probably simply needs to be duplicated to Azure! I'll look into this.

According to the revisions mentioned in comment #22 and comment #23 those are the regression ranges that introduced the bug (again):

https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=dec16a247230&tochange=caba046161e5

This range should probably contain the patch that fixes this bug:

1. Create two groups.
2. Open at least 10 tabs in one of the group.
3. Switch to Panorama.
4. Resize the larger tab group by minimizing at maximum (before a stack group is created)

There are no duplicate thumbnails anymore.
