  • Right back from the forum redesign I have been seeing this problem in Firefox.

    Often quoted text or code inserts are displayed with horizontal lines running through (like music manuscript paper). If I scroll the page so that it goes out of view and back again, or if I minimise then maximise, or move another window over then it displays OK.

    I know it’s not the graphics card as I have recently replaced it and the problem remains (both nvidia, though).

    Has anyone else seen this?

    It’s not a show stopper but it’s quite annoying.

      • Thanks Zi, maybe they will sort it out one day grin

        I just noticed that it happens when I scroll up and the block appears from the bottom of the window with the lines.

        If I scroll down from the top of the window then it comes out clean.

          Well, it’s still happening even with Firefox 2.0 (at least on my MacOS machine)....

          Strange horizontal lines inside the "code" blocks in the forum...

          Does anyone know what particular aspect of the CSS causes this rendering bug? It happens sporadically on my computer so it is hard to play detective..

          • Yeah, it started with 1.5 and has never gone away. (Mac here, too.) But I don’t seem to get it anywhere else. I’ve even checked the Simple Machines forum, and it doesn’t do it.

            • When I first saw it, I thought it was some kind of clever "lined paper" styling, then I saw it wasn’t every where, so then I thought it was some unusual "striking" of code... and then I scrolled down and it disappeared.

              I think it is more prevalent when I use the roller wheel on my mouse than using the scrollbar, but that could just be random perception.

                Ah... now I can make it happen more predictably and repeatedly.. it happens when the screen has scrolled so that a code block is partially visible at the top of the page. Then if I subsequently scroll UPWARDS a horizontal line is left exactly where the top-of-the-screen used to be. If I scroll slowly upwards, then the lines are "deposited" every millmetre or so...

                Other blocks, like "quote" blocks are not affected.

                Weird, but at least I am narrowing it down..
