media icon flashes every time you switch to the playing tab

Post by al_9x » Sun Sep 02, 2012 11:37 pm

with a delay

Fx 16.0b1, FG 1.4.8.1, new profile

  1. open http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uZVqPuq81c and http://www.google.com/ in two tabs
  2. when you switch to the google tab and back to youtube, the media icon flashes after some delay < 30sec

I think the purpose of the flashing is to draw attention to the detected media, so it should only happen once.

Might be a nightly issue, not seeing this.

It should be fixed in latest development build 1.4.8.4rc4, please verify, thanks.

I mentioned, FlashGot Media Icon Bounces, horizontally, & when I first loaded youtube, the icon settled to the right, where expected.

After switching to google, then back, after a short period of time, the icon then bounced - once, settling to the left.

(And then at some point while writing this is went back right.)

---

No, still bouncing - sometimes.
Google is not even needed, just take focus away from the window (SeaMonkey) & then back again.

---

And now, after it happening a number of times, I'm finding it hard to duplicate?
So perhaps it is cache related?

OK, ignore (kind of) what I said above.
I wasn't understanding the issue (as far as FF is concerned).

It does look to be fixed in FF.

Seems FF does not have a Status Bar any longer, but instead the icon gets placed on the Navigation Bar.

(Nonetheless, what I've mentioned does still apply, not a flash, but the horizontal bouncing, to SeaMonkey.)
