User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20.0 Firefox/20.0
Build ID: 20121120030739

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a gif image like this :   http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/2c/Rotating_earth_%28large%29.gif/200px-Rotating_earth_%28large%29.gif

2. Right click anywhere in the browser such that a context menu opens.
3. Move mouse inside the context menu.


Actual results:

The animation stops


Expected results:

Not so.
I can reproduce this in older builds with the unsure regression range:
Last good nightly: 2012-09-28
First bad nightly: 2012-09-29

Pushlog:

Reporter, you reported this previous bug (bug 786585), is it similar?

No, #786585 is different.

This bug is almost a dupe of https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=801784 .  Though i dont know why i am still able to reproduce this issue.
This works for me too, and definitely seems very similar to bug 801784. Very weird that it still occurs for you though.

i can reproduce in a new profile. I tried switching off layers acceleration and azure content. But no go.

about:support of new profile

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20121224 Firefox/20.0
BuildID: 20121224030902

I can reproduce it from a new profile in Windows 8 with a blocklisted graphic driver, i.e. no hardware acceleration. The driver is Catalyst 12.6 legacy, which is the latest one available for my old ATI HD3650 card.

Right-clicking and moving the cursor into context menu stops the gif animation, but another right-clicking would resume the animation.

about:support of main profile

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20121224 Firefox/20.0
BuildID: 20121224030902

However, the behaviour is different in my main profile. The gif animation only halts for about 0.5 seconds every time I move the cursor into or out of the context menu area, while keeping the menu opened at all times.

I have force enable direct2d and layer acceleration in this profile by setting gfx.direct2d.force-enabled and layers.acceleration.force-enabled to true, but the result is still the same (0.5s halt) even if I reset both of them to false.

This has mostly been solved by bug 808466 except for one thing :  When you click-and-hold the mouse pointer on the window frame, the GIF stops animating for ~ 1 second.
