And, Iceweasel (and it may have happened with the iceape browser; I am
not sure - have not used it for a couple of weeks, now, I think) has a
habit of leaving fragments of dialogue boxes on top of everything else
on the desktop, hiding parts of the screen with the dialogue box
fragments, which only disappear when I kill or crash iceweasel. The only
thing that displays on top of the dialogue box fragments, is when I
invoke the screensaver, which overwrites evrything on the screen (at
least, for the present time)

I would include a screenshot showing this, but I do not know whether
this mailing list allows attachments.


I've seen that happen before - I don't believe the problem lies with
Iceweasel though, more likely a video driver/window manager problem

If you gave us (in a fresh post) information about your video etc
someone might be able to help.

Is that what is needed?

I am running GNOME.

Synaptic shows the GNOME version as 1:2.30+7

The Iceweasel version shows as

"

Iceweasel/3.5.16 (like Firefox/3.5.16)

"

What other information is needed?

It's preferable not to attach images. Use a screenscrape site.

Are you using any effects that require 3D?

NOTE: I'm not familiar with GNOME

I take it that means "*absolutely no* desktop effects enabled" :-)

Any errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

I'm not a GNOMEr, perhaps if you posted some a link to a site where
you've posted screen scrapes someone knowledgeable might be able to assist?
