|0008482||CentOS-7||xorg-x11-server||public||2015-04-16 08:13||2016-04-10 19:06|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0008482: Constant screen flicker with Firefox browser|
|Description||Any updates of a firefox webpage - like changing content or clicked buttons - result in a very ugly flicker. Sometimes it's only the area of the clicked page element or, sometimes the whole firefox windows (excluding the frame) flickers.|
|Steps To Reproduce||works with almost any webpage|
|Additional Information||I'm using the propriatery nvidia driver installed via a additional repository and the firefox that came with Centos 7.1|
I had no issues with Centos 7.
I tried the latest firefox 37.0.1 from the mozilla download page and had the same issues, which is why I blame the xorg server / driver and not firefox.
I have not had any comparable issues with any non-Firefox applications.

It was suggested that this was the following upstream bug:
Here are packages with the upstream patch applied, does this fix your issue:
I am experiencing what looks very similar to what OP describes.
clutter-1.14.4-12.el7.centos.x86_64.rpm has not helped.
I have to apologize, as my original note (0023292) was in error.
The package by JohnnyHughes is indeed effective and has resolved my flickering issue.
A routine automatic update yesterday has brought the flickering back.
Installing the package by JohnnyHughes (rpm -ihv --force) saves the day again.
|Thanks for the patched version! Does anyone know if there's an upstream bug for this issue, and is it likely to be addressed in the 7 series?|
|Incidentally, what commands did you use to make that version? I'd like to get a version yum won't clobber with an update.|
This worked for me, but try at your own risk. I'm running CentOS 7.0.
(1) Installed patched clutter pkg by Johnny Hughes using "rpm -ihv --force"
(2) Uninstalled default version using "yum remove clutter-1.14.4-12.el7_1.1"
(3) Add a new line "exclude=clutter" (without quotes) to the [updates] section of /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo
Installing the patched version first and then uninstalling the base version avoids the deinstall/reinstall of about 35 dependencies. Editing the .repo file will keep yum from overwriting the patched version.
The clutter-devel and clutter-doc packages were not installed by default, and I did not install the patched versions. If you install them, add corresponding "exclude" entries to the .repo file to keep them from being overwritten.
|With 7.2 and newer clutter. Can we mark this as resolved?|
