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:

https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1062535

Might be related with composite mode?
I'm using compton on top of XFCE instead of its native compositor,
and
the about window of FF 56 appears fine on my machine.

I honestly would not know - we test the live cd for example, taking the
settings as proposed by the XFCE maintainers

You can grab the current image that is being tested from https://openqa
.opensuse.org/tests/502217 - assets tab (that's the next live image to
be published, should we accept this issue)

It can also be an interaction between qemu/xfce/ff - just to make
things funnier

Cheers
Dominique
