#7839 new defect

Popup menus have invisible text

Reported by: cscott Owned by: benzea
Priority: normal Milestone: 9.1.0-cancelled
Component: sugar Version: not specified

Deployments affected: Action Needed: never set
Verified: no


Some popups in the sugar theme display invisible text in the popup title, although they become visible when you hover over the entry.

I've seen this in Browse, but the easiest way to see this is to olpc-update faster-2255, open the sugar control panel and click 'Desktop', select the 'XFCE' desktop, click 'accept', and then 'restart now'.

When XFCE starts up, the XFCE panel is at the bottom of the screen, and the left-most icon is for the XFCE startup menu, which shows this problem quite clearly. (We're using the Sugar theme for XFCE as well.)

I just had a look at the XFCE issue. It turns out that it is Xfce's fault in this case. I can add a workaround for it.
I assume that Xfce is specific to the faster branch? Or is it worth to have the workaround in 0.8.2?

You said that you are also seeing a similar issue in other places. Is that a menu that belongs to gecko? There may well be some bug in the mozilla GTK+ faking code ...

  • Milestone changed from 8.2.0 (was Update.2) to 9.1.0

9.1.0 unless we decide to ship xfce in 8.2
