    Question — OSX version (I’m still using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040218 Firefox/0.8.0+); OSX 10.3.2, Pismo/G3.

    Any Javascript animation bleeds through any and all subsequently opened tabs. In other words, I go to a tab, open something that animates a Javascript area, it starts running and I then switch to any other tab I already had open, or open a new tab — and that Javascript section of the screen continues to apperar ‘on top’ of whatever else should be on top.

    I haven’t figured out — clues humbly accepted — whether this is part of one of the javascript problems being described elsewhere, maybe already fixed in a subsequent build that I can’t use yet; or is a known bug — or just something peculiar to me.

    Jesse, you’re a good bug triager, so I wanted to ask you a question. I’ve got an installer problem, but it’s hard to explain. Things go VERY SLOW (like clicking buttons and drawing items in the window), and the checkbox at the very end (to launch firefox) has a graphic incorrectly half-overlayed.

    I think the best way to show this would be to make a video of it, but I can’t find a way to make a video from the desktop (XP Pro). I’m pretty experienced with using VirtualDub, but I need a way to capture what is going on in real time so I can make an avi file (or whatever). I’d appreciate any help (or a previous bug report if I’m not the only one experiencing this — I know this only happens on my computer, and not others I install on). Or maybe you have a better way of explaining this.

    The mouse wheel crash has been since Feb. 05

    Mike: “ALL installer perf” and “ALL installer slow” didn’t turn up anything. I don’t know anything about making videos of the screen. When did that bug first appear, or was it there when the Firefox installer was first introduced?

  5. Mike Goodspeed Says:

    It’s always been there. I’ve just been to busy to report it. Hell, I’m still to busy. Any input would be welcome.

    Here’s the picture at the end of the installer — http://hope.homedns.org/jesse/installer-end.png I don’t really know how to explain it. You should also fix your tabindex so that I can tab into the submit buttons.

  7. Mike Goodspeed Says:

    Oh, and just so you don’t think I’m on an ungodly slow computer — I’m on a P4 1.7GHz 384MB RAM Windows XP Pro computer that I take very good care of.

    Firefox-mac.dmg.gz 22-Feb-2004 03:42
    — is available
    — does not crash on startup (creating a new profile, copying in files from the old profile but none of the old /chrome files, yet)
    — does still have the problem with javascript-bleed-through-all-tabs, for me.
    (apparently that only happens to me)

    OSX 10.3.2, G3/900

    Mike, your pic shows the graphical error reported in bug 225281.
