Closing Firefox on VirtualBox gives me a white screen
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I have installed Solus on latest VirtualBox, and I have applied all the updates. When I open Firefox and close it, it gives me white screen and the VM hangs. I have tried that on two different machines, I get the same result.

"Tried on two different machines" - I assume to mean VirtualBox. Which in this case sounds like a Virtualbox issue. Have you tried it on actual hardware?

This should have been fixed with QXL driver support in the latest updates.

I have tested this on Solus 1.2.1 (latest) with Virtualbox 5.1.8 r111374 (latest) and it is still an issue.
The issue happens with either Firefox or Chrome. The screen goes white after closing either of them. Also, other windows cannot be placed over the content of the Chrome or Firefox windows.

Perhaps there's a dev build I can run that has this resolved?

Can you verify this with the latest ISO snapshot?

I've verified that this is fixed!

Thank you for the awesome work.
