applet flickering/blinking/flashing on Mac

My applet uses double-buffering and renders fine on a PC. But on a Mac, I get a nasty flicker - esp. when scrolling the applet.

Is there anything I can do about this? (I notice the Mac flickers a lot even when it's starting up...)

Yes, I am having the same problem and use applets quite a bit. I noticed the Crossword applet the Washington Post uses -- also flickers in the Mac FireFox browser. Safari works fine. So does FireFox on the PC.

Does anyone know if Mozilla plans to look into or fix this issue?

Q...
