On my Linux box, scrolling up or down on the Slashdot home page using the arrow keys causes obvious tearing.  The tear line is about 3/4 of the way across the article summary.

I also experience this same issue in Firefox 7 beta 6 under Windows 7 x64 Service Pack 1 with the latest Windows Updates and latest Nvidia beta and non-beta drivers.

Bah I meant it affects every website for me, not Slashdot specifically. It also only affects Firefox 7, previous versions are unaffected.

Is my bug #722148 a dupe of this one?
Can somebody look into this, because regression range looks similar, as it also started occurring in Firefox 7

Note this matches the regression range from bug 700867 (filed by In that bug roc said that this implicates bug 647560, although it's not clear why.

The patch for bug 700867 maybe?

This is probably fixed by now, because patch for bug #700867 landed.
So we can close this one if Justin Lebar [:jlebar] can confirm this :)
