From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7
Description of problem:
When running Firefox, the screen will occassionally experience massive corruption. The corruption is easiest to trigger with Firefox, but it has happened with other programs as well. Switching to VT1 and then back to VT7 will clear the corruption.
I suspect this is related to the known nv corruption problem with Geforce 6 chipsets - my chipset is probably not blacklisted until the problem is fixed.
