Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 500668
Slooow redraws when page is opened in Firefox
Last modified: 2009-11-05 18:29:58 EST
When my netvibes page is opened in epiphany, redraws of any element of the desktop is really really slow. Switching tabs in xchat shows the scan of the redraw (it takes about 1.5 seconds), switching from epiphany to xchat shows a redraw as well, usually taking up to 5 seconds.
I can also see GTK+ widgets drawing one by one when launching new apps.
The URL for the page is http://www.netvibes.com
I usually leave the page opened forever.

I've also attached my X log.

Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, including Intel driver, which may have resolved this issue.
To be more precise, Intel has undergone a major rewrite during Fedora 10, 11 and 12 cycles, and whole driver is working a lot better now. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to retry with at least Fedora 12 Beta and see if the issue is still relevant.
Please, if you experience this problem on Fedora 12 Beta or up-to-date system running Rawhide, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.
If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
We hope to see how many older bugs in Intel driver are still relevant today, in hope that most of them were fixed in rewrite process.
[This is a bulk message for all open Fedora 10 i810-related bugs (39 of them are still open). I'm adding myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
Works fine in F12.
