    Ugly lines on Mozilla


    In some applications (Mozilla, Netscape, etc.), I get hideous lines as I browse (or type in text boxes; I'm getting them right now. >:O ). Does anyone know how to fix this? Screenshot of the lines: http://adrohak.ath.cx/mozilla_lines.png

    try adjusting your screen resulotion. I had that problem and it stopped happening when I switched to a lower res.

    Good Luck!

    AFAIK, Mozilla (and its derivatives, like Netscape, Epiphany, Galeon, Camino, etc.) have that problem. There's some kind of alignment problem in Gekko that still seems unsolved

    Normally, elements will just get misaligned by a pixel or two, not causing those lines, though. I'm guessing that your acceleration driver causes those lines in conjunction with that Gekko bug. If that is the problem, then there's not much to do except wait until the Gekko problem is solved.
