Visit a site thats build on full flash, and watch yourself panning and tapping the screen will flicker. Visit the URL in the bug for an example. Here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrxePPRFyAg Repro: 1) 04-17-2012 nightly, HTC Sensation, Android 2.3.4 2) visit a full flash site. (see URL. also gotmilk.com is one) 3) when site finishes loading, try to pan the screen. 4) Verify page flickers. Expected: - No flash site flickering Actual: - flickering

snorp will be landing a major change to how we paint flash, so please retest once that lands. Snorp, can you put the bug number for that in a comment here?
Comment on attachment 618590 [details] logs Sorry I added the file to the wrong bug.
Bug 727116 describes a change where we will take a snapshot while we pan/zoom, but that's still probably going to be bad for this case. Maybe what we need to do is detect these full page flash applets and not do any of that stuff.

Still reproducing flash flickering today.
A different full flash site is now causing panning to get a the crash from bug 738198. Should this be duped? See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=738198#c10 for more details.
Not just full flash anymore. try a site with flash ads (eg. www.marketwatch.com). tap on the flash ad, and it continues to flicker. HTC Sensation, latest-aurora build 4/30/2012, Android 2.3.4
Snorp, thoughts on this?

The above patch disables the placeholder hack if the plugin is more than 10% of the screen dimension. This seems to make things much happier for me.

Unable to reproduce on Nightly 15.0a1 (2012-05-22) Aurora 14.0a2 (2012-05-22) Samsung Galaxy SII (2.3.4) The full flash sites are not flickering when panning or tapping the screen. (I used http://verdeteacafe.net/ and http://gotmilk.com ). Also the flash ads on other pages (cnn.com, etc..) are working fine.
