When I go to BenchJS at:
http://www.24fun.com/downloadcenter/...s/benchjs.html

and run the benchmark test, when it finishes, there are scrollbar anomalies with Tiger's Safari.

It wasn't like this in MacOSX Panther when I ran the benchmark and got the results page.

Can anyone with MacOSX Tiger else confirm this for me?

I see no anomalies.

EDIT: unless you mean this, (the scroll bar is at the very TOP, but you can see it doesn't fit quite right), which appears in the Finder, iTunes, and some other applications (but not Safari, oddly enough). Maybe that was there before Tiger, but I would figure I would have noticed it—it was pretty much the first thing I saw after installing Tiger.

Did you run the benchmark with all the 7 tests? For me at the results page in Safari 2.0 the scrollbar is kind of messed up with chunks of scrollbar "artifacts" underneath the scrollbar.

EDIT:This occurs only at one's own results page after the tests are complete.
The odd thing is that the "scrollbar artifacts" disappear when I click on the desktop screen or on another tab. Odd. . . hmm. . .

Hi!

Just wanted to confirm that I get this bug regularly in Safari. Can't make out a pattern, though...

It seems to be a problem with all Carbon apps.

I have seen it happen a lot in Safari on certain websites. But I had it long before 10.4 In fact I saw this well in to 10.3
So it's not so much the OS, it's Safari. Problem does appear worse on some versions of Safari than others tho, granted. Current one being one of the not so good versions in that department.
The worst thing about having a failing memory is..... no, it's gone.

Happens to me too. I've also been having issues of Safari 2.0 crashing a LOT more often then the 1.x line.

yep, also confirming that i get these artifacts in safari, though it seems to happen a lot when you reach a webpage that displays a long list of results from searches.

I get this bug too... I hate it. Also, Safari doesn't remember MY window location as well. I really hope this gets fixed soon.
