It is not really a matter of being a 'team player', it is just that the way you phrased your initial question: 'the redraw problems which have never been fixed'; led me to believe you knew that there was a bug open on the problem.

My recommendation is that you go to the Bugzilla and open a Bugzilla account (if you have not already) <> . Then use the Bugzilla Helper to file a bug on your problem <> . This will allow you to know a bug number that you can follow to track the progress on fixing the redraw problems you are seeing. If another bug matches your problem then the bug triagers will mark it a duplicate with a pointer to the matching open bug. The developers may have questions for you, so watch for Bugzilla mail.

You don't have to have a URL to point the Mozilla developers to - you can attach your HTML document to the bug for them to examine. Please try to make sure you include as specifically as possible the actions the testers will need to take to duplicate the behavior you are seeing.

This shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes of time and it will help you and Mozilla out. It is almost as simple as posting to MozillaZine :-)
