Firefox 31. Eydropper not working.


Hi. I'm using Slackware current, 32-bit. And i noticed that new feature in firefox 31 - eyedropper, isn't working. 'not working' means that no magnifying lense appears and if it will, it's image will be crippled like on this screenshot i made.
I wanted to know, am i the only one experiencing this? Is it a bug, or something else?

;; i use proprietary nvidia driver, if it matters.

what I can say is that:
- it doesn't work with the binaries of 31.0 from mozilla too;
- it still does the same with self-built mozilla-firefox-32.0b1;
on the host I tested I'm running the latest nvidia-drivers too...

Hmm. Interesting.

Also, after latest Xorg update, i noticed that every time i shut down X session, in tty i see:
Quote:
(EE) "Server terminated sucessfully (0). Closing file"
(EE)
(EE) Backtrace:

There is no mention of any segfault in Xorg.N.log files though. The only error xorg log mentions is:

Works on 14.1, Firefox 31.0 (obtained using ruario's latest-firefox script). Was going to post a screenshot as proof, but I'm over the limit for attachments.

Doesn't work here, too.

I'm on the latest Mesa drivers trunk (4 days old) and have a Radeon HD 6800 - should be more than suitable to render this little thing.

But it doesn't, the cursor vanishes and I'm moving around in the blind when I activate it. Mozilla quality, as usual.

Small bump just to make you aware that the method to force hw acceleration has changed in upstream versions of Firefox.

I've done a small how-to on LQ :

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ix-4175501483/

Works with the Nvidia blob.

Of course, YMMV.
