Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186763
Firefox image display is corrupted (overlaid by other objects in cache)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
I have http://www.cnn.com as my home page. Sometimes, the image for the lead
story shows corruption by being partly covered by other objects which Firefox
draws. I've also seen the large flash ad at the top showing similar corruption.
It's really hard to describe, so I've included a cropped screenshot of the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run FC5 Firefox using http://www.cnn.com as home page. Recheck it periodically.
Corruption as shown in screenshot.
Screenshot shows a piece of a Classmates.com flash ad, a piece of the Bugzilla
web site (which I visited in a tab) and a piece of the search window in
Firefox's upper right corner, overlaying the image under the lead story title.
I have Flash, Java, Real Player, and MPlayer plugins installed.

Looking at it again, it's now showing a fragment of the display from
Thunderbird which is also currently running. So it can be corrupted by pieces
from other applications. So far I've only seen the corruption in Firefox, though.
I suspect this may be due to a hardware flaw in the motherboard's integrated
video, and am closing.
