Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 308541
Buttons of Adobe flash demo unresponsive when rendered by Gnash plugin 0.8.1
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Description of problem:
When pointing browser 'epiphany-2.20.0-1.fc8' to the Adobe flash demo at
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome, then section 'Adobe Flash Player'
is rendered correctly but it doesn't react to a mouse pointer moving
across the respective buttons. Moreover, after moving another window
across the flash demo, only a grey rectangle is left behind. It doesn't
get refreshed, and one has to reload the entire page to see the flash
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gnash-plugin-0.8.1-5.fc8.
2. Launch 'epiphany' browser.
3. Open http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome
Section 'Adobe Flash Player' is rendered correctly but unresponsive.
Flash demo should respond when moving mouse pointer e.g. to the 'About'
button for which one expects the version to be displayed.
Yesterday, I had built the Gnash plugin from the pristine source choosing
the 'ogl' renderer instead of the 'agg' one used by the Fedora package.
Font rendering quality was poor but the buttons of the flash demo worked
correctly as demonstrated by the attached screenshot.
