I've had this bug for several months on all of my gentoo builds, and I know a few other people with gentoo experiencing the same (very similar builds as well).

I've only actually noticed it on images, so maybe it's a way they're displaying their images, i dont know. However it doesnt happen on a redhat or ubuntu build (obviously significant package differences), and even on gentoo it doesnt happen in konqueror or chromium. However in gentoo it happens on any mozilla based browser - like seamonkey or firefox.

You can produce the issue by going to a product on newegg. Click on the thumbnail image so it pops up the div. If the product has zoom in images so it uses their adobe flash plugin (not all products do), after it opens and displays the image it will be in black and white. Even though the images in both the thumbnail viewers are in full color, the "zoomed in image" is in black and white. Go here in firefox : ( NOTE: i would like to make it clear i do not want this horrendous case, simply searched for orange - since its a bright color.. lol ) click on the image and once it pulls up - it should be in black and white. is a screenshot of what it looks like on my desktop next to chrome.

Is there anyone else having this problem?

I've tried a lot of random combinations of useflags, about:config changes, clean profiles, ff/af versions, i can't even begin to list, as I've been messing around with it off and on for several months.

I've emailed neweggs website support twice, and they have not responded. I'm assuming it's probably not something on their end, and they just have no clue so they don't bother to respond because their customer service sucks now a days lol.

I only have one gentoo build this isnt happening and its a year on lxde build that doesn't have flash installed (minimal vm). So when you don't have flash installed it doesn't seem to happen, it just loads regular jpegs in the little gallery view, instead of their animated zoom in thing.

If anyone else is or is not having this problem, I'd love to hear about it. At least confirm it one way or the other. Also any ideas to resolve this would be greatly appreciated. It can be somewhat annoying of a bug, since I do a lot of business on newegg. I have yet to notice this issue on any other site, i did spend one night looking around at other flash image zooms without success of replicating.

Ps = (1.5 x 6 x .75) / {(4/3) (pi) [(31.039 x 10^15) (46.5 x 10^9)]^3}
Seems like a waste..

That's pretty odd :roll: I'm using www-client/firefox-bin and product is in color :?

Just for laughs, emerge firefox-bin to see if it's still problematic.
Good luck :wink:

Since installing gentoo, my life has become one long emerge :)
