Default nvidia bug or Firefox bug?

Hi,

Linux 2.6.35 x86_64, NVIDIA 260.19.06, bug report attached. Using Compiz as the window manager with GTK as the decorator.

Bug 1

When I have more than 1 tab open in Firefox 3.6.9, and close one tab, Firefox switches to the last used tab but the screen still displays the old (now closed) tab. If I scroll the page, it instantly updates to the new (current) tab contents. This does not happen in Chromium 6.0.472.53.

Bug 2

Pasting text in a text box in Firefox doesn't work properly, the new text isn't displayed, until I scroll the page/textbox. Sometimes it works though.

Can anyone reproduce?

This sounds like the known synchronization problems between GLX and Damage that are inherent in the design of those extensions. See this thread for a discussion of the currently proposed fix:

Short version: Compiz can handle Damage events in response to rendering before the rendering has actually occurred.

Ah, I see. I suppose I'll just wait and see.

Thanks for the quick reply!
