SOFTWARE VERSION: 2009.42-11 EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 1. Open a web page in Maemo Browser 2. Minimize it so that you are in the multi-task view 3. Tap on the browser window to bring it back into focus EXPECTED OUTCOME: Browser window returns just like every other app, without a blink/flickr. ACTUAL OUTCOME: Browser windows blinks once before web page is viewable. REPRODUCIBILITY: always
ok, it's painting a checkboard (roughly "no rendered content") and then we paint the actual page. there are internal builds with this fixed. not sure about release plans.
*** Bug 6215 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Looks like int-145537 to me which is not reproducible in the internal version 2.2009.47-5. (Which does not mean that it's necessarily fixed, but probably by some side effects.)
Can't reproduce this in 2.2009.51-1. Thus I think we can mark this as fixed and verified.
The problem reported here should be fixed in the update released today for public: The Maemo5 update version 2.2009.51-1 (also called "PR1.1" sometimes). Please leave a comment if the problem is not fixed for you in this update version.
I'm afraid I still get the blink/flicker when maximising browser windows in 2.2009.51-1 (this is the image released on 23 Dec 2009 not 14 Jan 2009). One web site that blinks almost all the time is http://news.bbc.co.uk. Sometimes http://news.bbc.co.uk will stop blinking as it is maximised, but minimising it and maximising another minimised app window (doesn't have to be another browser window, eg. try Contacts) and then maximising http://news.bbc.co.uk again will almost always result in the browser window "blinking".
It's still happening in PR1.1, just that the redraw is a bit faster, but still there.
Tim/Neil/Andrei: we have a problem. I can't allow you guys to resurrect bugs continuously. Even if the bug isn't really fixed, if you don't do a good job of filing your bugs, you'll have to accept poor resolutions for them. Andre: i'm pretty sure you picked the wrong internal bug. this bug clearly mentions checkerboard, the internal picture (yay!) shows a truncated view in the dashboard which hopefully you'll accept is a different problem. Andrei/Neil/Tim: ctrl-shift-p will take a screen shot. And there's an app iirc which enables you to use the camera button to take screen shots. I think actually what you'll find is that what we're dealing with is a feature and not a bug. I've refile this as bug 8010 with complete steps to reproduce and then resolve it. DO NOT REOPEN THIS BUG. DOING SO WILL EARN YOU A PERMANENT NAUGHTY BIT.
Fixed in PR1.2
