Screenshot of corrupt flash display

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:12.0a1) Gecko/20120117 Firefox/12.0a1
Build ID: 20120117031056

Steps to reproduce:

For many weeks now, I have been using 64-bit Firefox Nightly builds on 64-bit RHEL6.1. I had 64-bit Flash player (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/completion/?installer=Flash_Player_11_for_other_Linux_(.tar.gz)_64-bit). I placed libflashplayer.so from the package into .mozilla/plugins directory and it worked fine.

Firefox Nightly auto-updates almost everyday.

Actual results:

Sometime last week, my flash player broke.

Now when I load a web page that has flash content, it appears blank. If I switch to a different application and switch back, the flash area is all corrupt (see attached screenshot). Also as seen in the screenshot, some GTK-CRITICAL messages show up on console:

(<unknown>:4066): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_get_visual: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed
(<unknown>:4066): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_colormap_new: assertion `GDK_IS_VISUAL (visual)' failed
(<unknown>:4066): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_colormap_alloc_colors: assertion `GDK_IS_COLORMAP (colormap)' failed
(<unknown>:4066): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_modify_bg: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

Expected results:

I ended up using nspluginwrapper to use 32-bit flash in 64-bit Firefox Nightly. This is not ideal. I would expect the native 64-bit flash player to work as beautifully as it was working few days ago.

I seem to be hitting the same issue - can confirm that the build from Jan 3 is OK, Jan 14 is busted.  Also, plugin-container appears to be hung in a CPU-bound look spewing tons of stuff at the X server (both plugin-container and xorg end up at 100% CPU), stack traceback looks like:

Basically, it's just going bonkers beating on that libxcb.

I also noticed that with native flashplayer plugin, plugin-container constantly runs around 65% CPU on a 4-core computer.

Comment 3

Whatever the problem is/was, I can't replicate it anymore on the 01/23 trunk build.

Comment 4

Same here. Seems to be working now. I hope someone knows what fixed this, otherwise it is unsettling!
