Planete Beranger is reporting that Firefox 3 renders images as black on certain sites. I've run into the same problem on my system, and I can reliably repeat the problem. The conditions are:
- Mandriva 2008.1 Powerpack
- Firefox 3 downloaded from the Mozilla site and running locally out of my home directory
- Running a load-intensive task while web surfing with Firefox 3.
Two updates came down the wires for Mandriva last night and this morning. The first is for Firefox 188.8.131.52. Planete Beranger reported that Mandriva 2008.1 did not have the security updates one week after the initial updates had been released. They have now been pushed out and they are in the repository.
The second update is for OpenOffice 2.4.1. For those reviewers who felt that the earlier 2.4.0 point release was a mark against Mandriva, they can now rest easy knowing that OpenOffice 2.4.1 is finally a solid part of Mandriva 2008.1. And my thanks to the Mandriva developers and managers who took a measured and responsible approach to pushing out a quality update.
