Description Jan Röhrich 2003-04-23 09:29:57 EDT
I'm using Redhat 8.0 remote through an Exceed XServer (7.0). 

When I try to view large html documents (perhaps > 100 screens???) with Mozilla
or Galeon, the background of the document is switched to black in that moment
when I first try to scroll the document (with arrow keys and scrollpane as well).

It seems this happens only if I use this configuration with remote X11 (can't
test it because server has no grafic interface) and only with very large
documents. It happens with Mozilla as well as Galeon. ... -->> Gecko??

Regards Jan

You don't have backing store on, do you?
Comment 2 Jan Röhrich 2003-05-05 19:45:19 EDT
Sorry, but what's "backing store"?

Additional fact:
It also happens on non-html output. For example on viewing the sourcecode of a
large html-document using galeon.

It's one of the options on the X server you're using.  I've heard reports of
problems with the X server and Mozilla.

I used backing store but there is no effect after turning backing store off.
