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.

Problem with application not in our repository. Fixed per forum link. Closing Invalid.

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.
