Iceweasel display corruptions anyone?

We have had quite a bunch of bug reports for some display corruptions in Iceweasel, most, if not all, of which are due to offscreen pixmaps being badly rendered by the video driver.

If you happen to be a silent (or even vocal) victim, please give a try to these test packages: for i386 and for amd64. If that solves the corruptions for you, please leave a comment here.

    I had some rendering problems with iceweasel too and after updating with your package (amd64) the problems were solved.

    Thanks for the feedback on the xulrunner-1.9 packages I posted yesterday. They led me to find a possible fix for the issue.
    Wasn’t the package fixed? will you ask. Well, yes and no. Actually, it was built using the internal copy of cairo in the m…
