Description Aleksandar Milivojevic 2005-12-08 16:17:51 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 CentOS/1.0.7-1.4.1.centos4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I've first noticed this on x86_64, and it seems that i386 is affected too.  Both tested with x86_64 X server.  The same problem exists with Mozilla web browser too (they probably share same rendering engine).  I've downloaded firefox 1.5 tarball from www.mozilla.com, and it seems that this problem is fixed upstream.

When viewing web pages that are generated by VmWare ESX management interface, most pop-up windows (for example when viewing virtual machine configuration) have large rectangular area of the window not rendered at all (they apear as huge gray rectangle).  Only small part of the window is actually rendered (small stripes on right side and bottom of the window).  If I move mouse over it, I can see it chaning as it passes over where the links on the page should be.  I can even click on them.  If I move window around so that blank area goes off screen and then back, it just fills with garbage (whatever was content of surrounding windows).

There is another rendering bug when viewing VmWare ESX management interface login page.  When typing username and password, the cursor is not visible in input textboxes.

I'm affraid I can't provide you with URL for obvious reasons.  However, if you have any VmWare ESX installation, just point firefox to it, login, click on any name from list of virtual machine (which would open machine's configuration window) and you should see the problem.  The version of VmWare ESX server I was using was 2.5.2 build-16390.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start firefox or mozilla
2. point web browser to VmWare ESX management interface URL

Setting the bug to NEEDINFO. If I won't get confirmation of reproducability in

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the
information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not
reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
