Re: slant

Can you please go into about:support in the address bar in Firefox, and copy and paste everything there into this thread?

Re: slant

I have a mac and I have the slanted screen problem as well. If i click on the bottom of the screen it goes back to normal for a second and then resumes the slant. Does anyone know what to do about this, as in, should I uninstall and reinstall firefox?

Re: slant

Can you attach a screenshot?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Re: slant

For anyone experiencing this issue, can you try installing the test build of Firefox located a http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/try-builds/jdrew@mozilla.com-70969d7d8523/try-macosx6... ? See if this fixes the issue.

Also, after testing that, you should update to Mac 10.6.8, it also fixes this issue. Is there a reason you aren't updated already?

I can't upgrade to Mac OS 10.6.8: I have an old MacBook Air, and upgrading would hang my machine :-(

Unfortunately, the latest nightly build does not fix this problem.

I had no other way than downgrade to Firefox 17.0 for the moment, but I'll have to move to another browser if this issue with Firefox is not fixed.

Re: slant

Upgrading to 10.6.8 shouldn't hang your computer, it's just security and bug fixes, so it's actually important to have that. Please try updating.

Re: slant

I already tried once, and I had to scratch my machine: It basically freezes one of the CPUs when some temperature sensors are above a very reasonable value.

I won't try a second time, sorry...

By the way, Nightly 21.0a1 (2013-01-22) seems to work fine :-)
