I'm on 7.1 Prerelease refreshed a few days ago. I've noticed that
Firefox 3 (3.0.4, but 3.0.3 was the same) displays snippets from ones
desktop on some webpages (yahoo and youtube being the 2 most recent).
I've tried to get together a simple test page to illustrate what is
happening and put it here:
This should display some text on a grey background (which it does in
Epiphany for instance). However in Firefox 3 it uses my desktop
background as the web page background in some strange way. Any ideas?
I have also seen this with Firefox 3. I see it often. It's not an image
rendering issue or anything like that. It's a portion of the window
filled by a copy of something else on the display. I even see it on
simple table displays.
I see it on both my laptop and my desktop systems and, even if I click
STOP before any artifacts are shown, they still start to appear and
continue to get worse until the display is unreadable.
