Thread: White flash (or flicker) when refreshing or navigating with IE8

    Thanks, Rob,

    Sorry for the delay, I've been out of the office most of this week so far. I
    haven't looked at why the 3 wrapper divs yet - the layout was designed almost
    a year ago and he's now starting to add content. I remember that the original
    design used display: table (plus a work-around for IE 6 & 7) to achieve a
    vertical center in the browser window, but someone told him that wasn't a
    good way to do it so it was removed.

    He removed the no-cache controls but it didin't make any difference.

    Don't know if this means anything but when I look at the page using my local
    server (Apache on the same pc) I get a complete white screen before it
    rebuilds in IE 8. No problems with the other browsers.

    Thanks and sorry for the delay - I've been out of the office most of this
    week so far and am way behind.

    Are you suggesting that I uninstall and reinstall IE 8 with Norton and
    SbyBot disabled?

    Thanks,

    That *might* resolve the behavior, yes.

    Default RE: White flash (or flicker) when refreshing or navigating with IE8

    I too am seeing this white flicker/flash on most web sites that have a black
    or very dark background. Example sites where I'm seeing this:

    http://www.creativelogicmedia.com/
    http://www.blackle.com/

    Interestingly, this site has a black background but does not exhibit the
    flicker:
    http://www.harvard.edu/

    The Harvard site has the Transitional XHTML doc type set. That sends IE8
    into Compatiability View/IE7 Standards mode. Perhaps that is the difference?

    Either way, I feel this is a bug that should be addressed.

    Hi Jul,
    I'm glad you posted this. I agree!!
    Besides the darker backgrounds, it flashes for me on lighter colors. gray,
    blue, red..etc.
    It's more pronounced on the black backgrounds.
    It's totally annoying!!!

    here's what I have tried..
    I disabled the add ons, I used compatibility view, I updated my display
    drivers,
    I even uninstalled my anti-virus/spyware/adware programs. I had enough of
    the tricks. I'm back to using IE7 on both of my computers.


    I'm hoping that this is a bug and not a in-compatibility with websites.
    Cause If this is, most won't conform to IE8. These websites
    will just tell you to go and get a another browser from another company to
    view
    their website. I don't wish to go down that road. I like internet explorer.

    Actually this is a well known bug in IE (and has been around for a
    while, so it is strange you only see it in IE8 and not in IE7).
    The reason the "flash" happens is because IE tries to render the page
    before the stylesheet has loaded. There is not much a user can do about
    this, the webpage designer can however. He/she should put an (empty)
    script element before the stylesheets.

    Are these fixed now? The only flash effect that I can get with them
    is by using Ctrl-k to clone them in a new tab. That effect wouldn't
    be noticeable if you used the option to open new tabs in the background.
    It might also be less noticeable even when opening new tabs in the
    foreground if you had a blank black page as your first Home page
    and used the option to use that as your new tab.
