    Version:
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031216
    Firebird/0.7+

    Background:
    On some xml pages, seems to be limited to those that don't have
    associated style info, if you click using the mouse wheel (to get the
    auto-scrolling effect), the page goes absolutely blank and has to be
    reloaded (Ctrl-R) for the text to come back.

    No crashes involved, just annoying.

    Example URL:
    http://www.suigeneris.org/want/dunit_want.xml

    Just thought I'd ask if anybody else got this problem before I submit it
    to Bugzilla. I've checked and couldn't find any bugs reported that are
    similar to this problem.

    This is a known problem in Autoscroll.

    Thanks. However...

    ....this site wasn't the one I used. I usually use the one at
    http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/
    available on the bookmark menu in Firebird, and that number you gave me
    didn't return the same page. "mozdev.org" also seems painfully slow from
    where I am. I got the result eventually (after almost a minute), so I've
    seen the bug report.

    I tried a new search at bugzilla but couldn't find an exact match. Why
    on earth are they using two different bug tracking sites?

    Because Autoscroll is an add-on that's included with Firebird (but not
    Seamonkey); it's not an official mozilla.org product and, therefore, all
    development takes place on mozdev. Also, if you do submit a report to
    bugzilla.mozilla.org, it will probably be marked as invalid.

    I see. Okay, thanks. I'm not too involved in the different parts of
    Mozilla. Personally, though, I think it would have been better to gather
    all bug reports under one roof.
