FS#1160 - [xf86-video-intel] windows are not rendered correctly in Pale Moon

I’m encountering this bug when using latest Pale Moon (version

The bug doesn’t only affect the preferences dialog - other windows are not rendered correctly either such as DownThemAll! add-on (see attached image).

The suggested fix is to update the intel driver (the about:config suggested change makes the preference dialog usable but other windows such as DownThemAll! still aren’t displayed correctly).

I’m using a T60 with intel graphics.

Downgrading to version of Pale Moon resolves the issue, so it's probably an issue related to Unified XUL Platform.

Also true for Iceweasel - opening a new bug for it and referencing this one.

From our packaging guidelines says:

"If there is an official tarball, however tarballs from the official Debian repositories contain bugfixes. In this case, the official tarballs from Debian should be used by default. (eg. Mutt+NeoMutt bugfixes)"

I think the Debian tarball could fix it, since they are using a special version in the Stretch version that is adapted for our snapshot, however if the bug persists, we could backport from the Buster one.

Alon, today i tested my machine with mode setting instead of the Intel graphics driver and it solved a similar issue reported by me some time ago.

It is my current config file:

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Intel(R) 965GME/GLE"
        Driver          "modesetting"
        VendorName      "Intel(R)"
        Option          "AccelMethod"           "glamor"
        Option          "PageFlip"              "yes"
        Option          "ZaphodHeads"           "LVDS-1,VGA-1"
        # modesetting
        Option          "kmsdev"                "/dev/dri/card0"
        Option          "ShadowFB"              "no"
        Option          "SWcursor"              "no"

Let me know if it solves your issue too.
