Description Paul Osmialowski 2014-12-13 16:05:43 UTC
Among yesterdays upgrades on my frequently updated x86_64 gentoo system there were www-client/firefox and mail-client/thunderbird. Right after I started to use upgraded version, I noticed that it is virtrually unusable. Scrolling down longer pages in firefox or longer mail messages in thunderbird causes that both text and images became more and more messy. This is particularry visible on pages like - long pages of content with a good mixture of text and fairly large images - scrolling it down soon turns it into a mess in places where content shoult be.
Downgrading to www-client/firefox-24.8.0 solves the problem - older firefox does not suffer from this issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade firefox (and/or thunderbird)
2. try to visit some popular site with longer pages (or read mail messages)
3. scroll down a page for a while
Actual Results:  
Mess on the page in places where content should be

Expected Results:  
No mess on the page

I don't know if it could be relevant, but I deliberatively keep older driver for my nvidia graphics device (namely, x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-304.125). Nevertheless, other web browsers (latest versions of konquoeror, epiphany etc. and older version of firefox) does not show similar behaviour.

Note that building firefox, even with /var/tmp/portage kept in tmpfs takes long hours. I may not be able to promptly switch between versions so my contribute for solving this may be limited in that matter.
Comment 3 Paul Osmialowski 2014-12-30 08:39:26 UTC
Today I upgraded nvidia-drivers to version 340.65 (the last version ever that supoorts my video card), it did not help, problem lies somewhere else.
Comment 4 Paul Osmialowski 2014-12-30 08:46:23 UTC
One long-time Sabayon user suggested me to change layers.acceleration.disabled to 'true' (as the bad effect I described him turned out to be widely known). Unfortunately, it did not help either.
Comment 5 Paul Osmialowski 2015-01-17 13:51:48 UTC
I gave up and installed firefox-bin and thunderbird-bin, they both work fine with latest versions.
