[thelist] Mozilla Browsers, :hover flicker and Graphics cards.

Having spent a while trying to resolve a problem where rollover effects 
using a:hover would only work in mozilla/firebird while the cursor was 
moving I discovered a very interesting development.

The problem only exhibited on 1 out of 3 screens on my multidisplay 
system! (of course it was the one I was running firebird on!)

has anyone else seen a flicker on menus in Firebird/mozilla?

I've seen a few bugs reported on bugzilla that might be similar and I'm 
wondering if it's a browser issue after all.

my hardware:

WinXP (with multidisplay)

AGNeovo 15" LCD on 3dfx Voodo3 card (has flicker)
LG 15"LCD on Matrox Millenium dualhead (no flicker)
AGNeovo 15" LCD on Matrox Millenium Dualhead (no flicker)

I'm using standard  WinXP mouse dirvers and a Logitech trackball.

I'm trying to find out if it's multidisplay (AGPvsPCI) or Graphics card or 
Mouse drivers perhaps.

any suggestions or similar experiences gratefully received.
