Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open http://www.highcharts.com/demo/dynamic-update 2. Allow the graph to load and tick a few times 3. Switch to another tab for ~15 seconds 4. Come back to the tab and note the position of the dots and line before the next update tick. Actual Results: Dots all clumped on the right side of the graph. Expected Results: Dots continuing to move with the line as they do when the tab is in the Foreground Hardware acceleration is on.
Works as expected in Firefox 4.
Maybe this is caused by Bug 633421. See https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/window.setTimeout#Inactive_tabs and https://developer.mozilla.org/en/firefox_5_for_developers#DOM
or bug 586201 Does setting layout.throttled_frame_rate to 60 in about:config have any effect?
At first glance, looks like a likely duplicate of bug 647001... but I don't see why, given that the page seems to only use 1000ms timeouts. Or is there a faster-running timeout on there somewhere?
jst, if we think this is something we need to fix for Fx5, I can try to write a quick patch for bug 647001 and see whether it helps... Robert, that pref no longer does much of anything.
Might also be related to bug 658189...
Unlikely; if I switch background tab setTimeout to a lower value (even 200ms is enough) the problem goes away.
Too late for 5, but since this will represent a regression in 5 so +'ng for tracking-6
Fixed by bug 647001?
The behavior is fixed in 7, I was still able to get it to occur once or twice in the 10 minutes that I tried. Nothing reproducible however.
Are we going to try to do anything for 6 or are we calling this bug "done"?
I think we're calling this done.... The only fix here is to fix bug 647001, and that one wasn't approved for 6.
