Firefox black lines in AutoScroll
« on: May 25, 2006, 03:10:22 PM »
When I view the result of AutoScroll I see a horizontal line evenly spaced throughout the display which I assume are like page breaks.  In IE the lines are fairly faint.  In Firefox they are a pronounced black and make the AutoScroll result not as good as IE.

I assume this is a browser issue.

In Firefox I see the web page being captured turning black as the AutoScroll progresses which I assume is why the horizontal lines are black.  If it is a Firefox issue does anyone know if there's an option in Firefox so that the black screen can be another color ?

I'm using ScreenCaptor 2.13.02 and 2.15.01 ... Firefox version is 1.5.0.3

this has to be some issue with windows display styles or themes or something.. you are not the only person it's happening to but i haven't been able to figure out why it happens to some people and not others..

i can add a little hack that allows people to specify some custom tweak  #s to avoid this but i'd really like to figure out the main cause.  i think it has to do with windows scrollbar sizes - the operating system maybe not returning the correct value to me..

if anyone can figure out any clues as to when the lines come up i'd be very interested in hearing.. i will keep trying to find it and add the custom tweak settings.

On an earlier version of SC, i've had problems with capturing one specific page, could it be related?
Maybe AndyPopely could post the page that is giving this problem, or does this happen in every page opened in ff?

It happens to all pages I've tried including this one http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=3789.0

I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it without any themes or extensions.  Same AutoScroll result.

If there's anything I can do to collect doc on the problem please let me know.

The AutoScroll black lines seem to be related to the size of the Firefox window.

If the Firefox window is maximized and the XP taskbar is set to auto hide then the black lines occur in the AutoScroll display.

If I don't maximize the Firefox window OR I don't auto hide the XP taskbar then the black lines don't occur in the AutoScroll display.

I hope this helps.
