[opensuse-factory] Firefox 56 vs XFCE
Dear openSUSE Tumbleweed users,

I know, many of you are eagerly awaiting Firefox 56 on Tumbleweed - I
know, because I am too

We are getting close: FF 56 has actually been submitted and has been
merged into 'The Factory' - But openQA detected some anomalies when FF
is being run on top of XFCE (not sure if other DEs are affected, we
test GNOME, KDE, LXDE and XFCE in openQA - XFCE is the only one showing
this)

The result looks something like this:
https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/502217#step/firefox/12

As you see, the about window is simply blank.

One can argue that the about window is not 'business critical' (and I
agree) - but I have absolutely no idea how well FF will behave for
normal browsing there.

The issue was neither observed on GNOME, KDE nor LXDE, where this is
also tested.

So, if you are an XFCE user, please keep your eyes open for anomalies
like this and help collect information in the bug I opened for it
already:

Cheers,
Dominique
