Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 370271
Scrolling in large amounts of text garbles screen
Last modified: 2008-07-03 20:28:40 EDT
Description of problem:
I've noticed problems when scrolling through output from jhbuild on pages like this:
Open that, expand the full log for the make build section and page down a lot.
This leaves parts of the screen not updated after a while and everything ends up
I've tried MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1 and also tried using the vesa driver to see if
that helped, but it didn't. I'm using the intel X driver normally.
Any pointers on how to get more info?
Just hold down pgdn for a while and then pgup etc. Forcing a redraw with alt-tab
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Can reproduce with firefox 3.0a9pre on x86_64 (if that matters).
Still seeing this with firefox-3.0-0.beta2.4.fc9
At this point, we're going to only be taking security fixes and major stability
fixes into this release of Fedora. However, we still want to ensure the bug is
fixed in the next version. We'd appreciate if you could test Firefox 3,
available at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html or now shipping
as the default in Fedora rawhide and provide feedback as to whether it still
exists so we can file a ticket upstream to try to fix it in Firefox 3 before it
3.0b3 from mozilla.com also fails to fix this bug.
In fact, it's worse than the firefox 184.108.40.206-3.fc8 that ships with FC8. I can't
get 3.0b3 to redraw the screen correctly at all.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Reporter, could you reproduce this with the latest Fedora package on F9/Rawhide?
Is your architecture i386 or x86_64?
Still seeing this with firefox/xulrunner from rawhide (f10)
Opening the full build log from this
and doing pgdn/pgup a lot triggered it.
I just hit this too while scrolling
with the mouse wheel or cursor keys: occurs for me around the eclipse packages.
I also see it both on F9 and rawhide.
Is there an upstream bug?
