Table backgrounds don't print, starting from FX17
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0 Build ID: 20121120042406 Steps to reproduce: Open a page with tables that have background images, for example: http://www.tizag.com/htmlT/htmlbackground.php Page setup has "print background images" and "print background colors" checked. Actual results: In print preview, the table background is not visible. Also if printed, the background is not visible. Expected results: Table backgrounds were visible in FX16, so something is changed. I have confirmed the bug on Ubuntu and Windows XP using Firefox 17, and a friend tested with Firefox 18 beta and it was the same.
Confirmed, FF17+ fail to print (preview & output) the background image in the tables. Here is the regression range. I'm not able to test the build of 2012-08-15 because printing that webpage crashes this build. And I think the regression is here, by fixing the printing crash, this bug has appeared. m-c good=2012-08-14 bad=2012-08-16 http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=22288130fea2&tochange=50e4ff05741e
There are 2 regression at least. #1 Regressed by Bug 697230 no backgound image printed (*and also no backgound image in normal view, but this was fixed by Bug 783162) #2 Regressed by Bug 792314 no backgound image and no backgound color printed I've filed separate Bug 816603 for the regression #2 . #1 Regression window Good: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/3b46b03dff5c Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0 ID:20120815053101 Bad(no backgound image (and also no backgound image in normal view)): http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/d67c02074ced Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0 ID:20120815065301 Pushlog: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=3b46b03dff5c&tochange=d67c02074ced In local build Last Good: 5709499c7c66 First Bad: 5c730c1f2274 +d5e42dcb36fd+d67c02074ced Triggered by: 5c730c1f2274 Kyle Huey — Bug 697230: Part 1 - Centralize style image observers. r=bz
Kyle - what are the options here? Is there a forward fix on the horizon or can you look into backing out some or all of bug 697230 and take a different approach so we can reverse this regression? We're too late for 17, unfortunately but 18 is still in beta and we could take a safe fix or a backout there.
Bug 697230 was a really important change and this is a minor regression, so we're not going to back it out to fix this.
(In reply to Kyle Huey [:khuey] (firstname.lastname@example.org) from comment #6) > Bug 697230 was a really important change and this is a minor regression, so > we're not going to back it out to fix this. Kyle, any update on if there a low risk forward fix in progress to make it into FF18 timeframe ?
Johnny - I know Kyle is swamped with B2G work. Anybody else who can take a look at this in the FF19 timeframe?
carrying tracking forward to encompass 20 on Aurora now.
This has missed FF19b4, and is therefore no longer eligible for resolution in that Firefox version.
Kyle should have cycles to look into this very soon, assigning to him.

I debugged it and understand whats going wrong. Not quite sure how to fix it yet.
This also fixes another bug we found where hiding and showing a subframe "loses" background attributes.
