Description Simon Fraser (smfr) 2009-01-03 10:49:24 PST
The attached testcase shows that a block with width and opacity changing at the same time shows a redraw issue which leaves an area where the element used to be un-repainted.

Comment 2 Simon Fraser (smfr) 2009-01-03 10:51:48 PST
Seems to be an issue only when the element toggles between having a layer (opacity < 1) and no layer (opacity == 1).

The comment is right, but the code is wrong. This will decide to repaint something that already has a layer if its opacity is going to change. Can we do a better check that gets this right? We want to repaint if "gets own layer" is going to change, so that's what we should be checking.

This is in a !hasLayer() clause, so it will actually do the right thing.
However, I will tidy up the logic.

I'm not a huge fan of this name for the function. What this function means is that you have non-standard opacity, non-opaque opacity. It says nothing about whether you have any CSS opacity rules, for example. You could have one saying opacity: 1.

But the real problem is it doesn't make sense to say that a fully opaque object with an opacity of "1" does not have opacity.

I'd suggest just saying opacity() < 1 at the call site, or coming up with a better name for this helper function.

r=me with or without a change to that

I changed it to test opacity() < 1 at the call site.
