Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0
Build ID: 20111104165243

Steps to reproduce:

Leave computer on overnight, screensaver (blank screen) comes on, slepe mode disabled, thunderbird gets and displays a 'new mail' notification in the background.


Actual results:

Upon awaking the computer from screensaver state Firefox GUI is all black with the exception of the firefox program title bar, the windows taskbar and a ghostly Thunderbird new mail notification box in the bottom right corner.


Expected results:

Computer should have redrawn/refreshed the firefox gui.  Worked in 4.0 and prior versions.

Firefox default theme

Cannot replicate by 'previewing' screensaver and sending myself an email.  Must sit for a few hours to replicate issue.
Severity: normal → minor

Was the Firefox window in the foreground, or was it mostly black after you switched the focus to the Firefox window? Does this also happen with any other applications?

Is Firefox hung in this case and needs to be killed?

Firefox was left in the foreground.
Firefox is not hung upon returning.  Alt+tabbing from and to revives it, as well as clicking on another window and clicking back on firefox via the task bar,
