Author Topic: Seamonkey 2.0.4 rendering problem.  (Read 1949 times)

I'm finding that Seamonkey 2.0.4 fails to render some things. As an easy to reproduce example, the images to the left of the central distro listings on distrowatch.com don't show up at all. I've hit a few other things that don't seem to render as well.

Its not my build, or at least, not only my build. I've got a copy of Salix_64 installed, which has the Slackware Seamonkey 2.0.4 build. It has exactly the same problem.

So, are others seeing this, or is it something peculiar to my system? I'm wondering if it might be something to do with the Intel video drivers, but other than that, I've no idea, unless its a general bug. If it is a general bug, I can't find anything listed in the Seamonkey bug tracker. There is no sign of the problem in the latest Firefox, or in Seamonkey 2.0.3.

Could very well be your video driver. I just fired up 2.04 and it looked fine on my notebook.

If it's not already there, will you try adding this option to your device section of xorg.conf to see if it helps or not.  Honestly, it doesn't resemble the usual problems but you never know.

Everything is rendered fine on this computer (laptop, Intel 852GM/855GM onboard graphics). I don't think it's a general SeaMonkey problem.

Thanks for the suggestion. Didn't help, unfortunately. Still since no one else what seeing it, I started wondering about a profile problem. And realized that I've been sharing the profile between VL (6.0 Standard, Light and SOHO) and Salix_64. Which tends to explain why I was seeing the problem in multiple distros.

Renamed the existing profile, fired Seamonkey up again, problem gone. So it is something that has got screwed up in the profile.

I used to have some notes on migrating things like passwords and mail to a new profile, but so far, haven't managed to find them. Does anyone know the required steps? I would hate to lose either the passwords or the mail. I've got the passwords stored elsewhere, but it would take forever to enter them all, and I really don't want to lose the mail.

Just to follow up on this....

Turns out its not a rendering problem at all. I run Adblock Plus under Seamonkey. I had an update to it shortly before I hit the problem. It looks as though they changed some of the criteria used to block data. Putting an exception in for Distrowatch fixed it  Embarrassed
