Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 145958
text handling bug in mozilla (all modules)
Last modified: 2018-04-11 05:22:45 EDT
on a Radeon 9200, there seems to be bugs in mozilla text handling.
specifically, it seems that text extents are calculated wrong as the
cursor is not positionned properly.
see attached screenshot for a sample...
open a mail window (or any edit control) in mozillaa
caret seems to lag behind the actual position of the end of the text
erase some text, a tiny portion at the right is not erased
some wierd text wobbling pattern can be observed during selection
Created attachment 110118 [details]
