Firefox: Animated GIFs flashing?

Weird little problem, anyone else experiencing this?

In Firefox, since upgrading from F13, animated GIFs flash on and off rather than animate.

FYI, it's not happening in Chrome.

Yes, same here. Blinking or flashing, no animate.
Bug?

Well, one can presume it's not a feature.

I built Firefox 3.6.8 using the FC14 spec file and related patches, same deal. Oddly enough, the animated on this forum is working fine. It's just on other forums and sites.

Not the end of the world, something worth noting.

Re: Firefox: Animated GIFs flashing?

I have been noticing that the animated radar(s) on wunderground.com are not working in F14, no problem in F13. Is this what you all are discussing?
Thanks

I see what you mean. Your links icons were blinking quickly, the animation at the top was ok. I am 64 bit as well - except have to have flash player in 32 bit for firefox.

It's not a flash player (32-bit) issue.
You can see the same problem also if you remove the flash player.

Re: Firefox: Animated GIFs flashing?

Firefox 4 beta x86_64 downloaded from mozilla works correctly, so no problems with animated GIFs.

Also Firefox 3.6 works fine when downloaded from Mozilla.
This can be a fedora issue.

I experience the same problem, x86, with or without Flash, two different video cards.
