Glitch in LQ Spy


When using LQ Spy, the newest post displays in some sort of "super-white" which partially washes out the text. The white background is not noticably whiter than other "white" areas on the page, but it is the only part of the page where the text is getting washed out.

It should be the oldest posts (and the bottom) which do this as they fade off the page. Are you seeing this at the top of the page, where newer posts scroll by?

I just want to say: For once, something's not broken for me

I use the spy a fair bit; the top (newest) post flashes onto the page, the page scrolls downwards, and the bottom 4~5 posts fade increasingly away.

Same here. I even tried to recreate the problem, thinking it might be his global thread view setting (oldest/newest first), but that had no effect on Spy.

Cheers

OK here too. Perhaps your monitor is upside down?

This weird.

Here at home, the "Spy" display is alternating gray and blue. Yesterday, at the office, the most recent post was brilliant white...followed by the blue/gray pattern.

Here: Firefox (Shireteko) 3.5.2 on Arch
Office: FF 2-something on RHEL

I'll report back after more tests---------and no, my monitor is not upside down....

Maybe a "office-computer" compatibility issue, with the ajax stuff?

Here we are at the office....

FF 3.0.11 (part of RHEL 5.3) The problem is present---screenshot attached

so maybe we can conclude that FF is at fault, but WHY??---e.g. why does it take just the first entry and turn it white?

Looks like it's starting off white, like it's supposed to, but not fading in to the correct blue/grey color. I still think it's a java/ajax situation. Why? Dunno..

Can you post a screenshot of the bottom 4-5 lines?

Same issue at the bottom of the screen (see attachment). Really seems like an issue with this version of FF.

Only if it's in FFs configuration for RHEL or the office PC hardware. I'm using FF 3.0 on Ubuntu 8.04. I've updated, step-by-step as updates became available, from 3.0.0 to 3.0.14, and have never had any issues with LQ Spy (or anything else), and it works properly now, as well.

Perhaps Sasha is on to something?
