whenever a new page is rendered in firefox, when changing the fonts in

and to a lesser extent other programs. Happens rarely in epiphany but
often in galeon and plain mozilla. Sound works correctly in FC2 and in
Windows. Sounds are turned off and the default output is alsasink.

release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.
Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
