Description Fulko Hew 2004-04-27 13:22:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040422 Description of problem: KNewsTicker v0.2 scrolling is jumpy. After a while the scrolling stops every 2 seconds for about 1 second. It seems related to what Mozilla is doing. After invoking and viewing a variety of web pages eventually one of them triggers something that makes knewsticker's scrolling become chunky. This is confirmed by the fact that killing Mozilla during a time when KNewsTicker's scrolling is chunky, makes the problem go away. Maybe this should be logged as a bug against Mozilla instead. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kdeaddons-3.2.2-1 How reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Configure KnewsTicker to appear on your task bar 2.Start Mozilla browser 3.View a variety of pages (eventually) the scrolling becomes chunky. Additional info: I suspect it might be related to animated GIFs in Mozilla, but I can't prove it. Although the symptom (affect on KnewsTicker) is trivial, it may represent a more fundamental underlying problem.

After upgrading to FC3 (2.6.10-1.741_FC3), I now see this same symptom again using Firefox. After a little more investigation, I have found a way to repeat the problem, and a temporary resolution. To create the KNewsTicker stuttering: 1/ Start Firefox. 2/ have some URL in the URL entry window. 3/ Use the mouse to 'swipe/select' the URL in that window. NewsTicker now stutters. To 'clear' the stuttering: 1/ Click on the 'Klipper' icon on the KDE task bar. 2/ Select 'clear clipboard history' , or double-click any of the recorded strings.

it seems to be fixed in fc3/4 update. I cannot reproduce this problem with KDE-3.4.2 on FC 3/4.
