When I load a picture in FF3 (I think only .jpgs) and it has to be resized width wise to fit the screen, the picture goes all or mostly black. When I click to fullsize it, it displays normally again. Click again to resize to fit screen, buggy again.

Anyone else experience this?

Yes...perhaps this might be a good way to get your bug reporting feet wet.

Blessed be!

Hi there,

I've the same problem and I found something on the Ubuntu Bugzilla.

I'm not at home right now, so I can't try the workarounds.

A 3rd workaround is mentionned in the posts :

add
Code:
Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"


in your xorg.conf

If it still doesn't work, add

Code:
Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"


HTH.

Hahaaa, I had seen that Ubuntu bug report and tried a bunch of the workounds (including the EXA line). But for some reason I hadn't tried the Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy" and thats what ended up actually fixing the bug for me. Thanks kernelsensei, you have saved my Christmas :)

Also reading from the same bug report showed that it's something from the new version of xulrunner and not firefox (because other browsers using xulrunner are affected in the same way).
