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...

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
