Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0.2) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.2 Iceweasel/10.0.2
Build ID: 20120217174734

Steps to reproduce:

Scroll with the mouse wheel in the message list.


Actual results:

Sometimes, there is display corruption.  It seems to be that when I stop scrolling, part of the message list didn't finish updating with the final position.

If I move the mouse cursor over message headers in the list, they then update correctly.  If I slide the mouse to the side out of the message list window, the list immediately updates correctly when the cursor leaves.  Trying to take a screenshot also causes the list to finish updating :-)


Expected results:

The message list should be updated correctly.

I tried with all add-ons disabled and I still see the problem.

Below is the trouble shooting info from Thunderbird.

Will that is bad! Anyway, this might provide a clue to the developers. I also tried to find a similar bug but couldn't find.

I find I can make it happen more often if I'm moving the scroll wheel back and forth quickly in the message list.

I tried that but I still cannot reproduce it here:
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:11.0) Gecko/20120327 Thunderbird/11.0.1
Application Build ID: 20120327115527

I use Slackware 13.37 + XFCE 4.6.2

So it could be related to several differences:

Debian vs Slackware sw levels
x86_64 vs i686
NVidia graphics and driver vs whatever you're running
Gnome-shell vs XFCE

What next?
