When we lose focus on the web page containing the animation, animations queues, which consumes a lot of processor once it regains the focus on the page. The effect is not more visually pleasing. See : http://api.jquery.com/animate/#notes-0
This has already been picked up as a bug - have a look at issue #419, which talks about exactly the same issue. I'm working on it with Brad Robertson with a view to hopefully getting it fixed for 1.2.6. There is a potential fixed version available from this issue log - please feel free to try it out, and let us know if it works for you?
This has been fixed in the dev branch. Releasing soon hopefully
Thanks you, I Tried quickly to see the change but the #419 was about scrollable and my problem is with the slideshow plugin. I'll just install the new version when it will be released.
I indeed refered to the slideshow plugin. I'll wait then for the new released version. Thank you.
Oh wow, I'm really sorry, I didn't even realize there was a separate slideshow plugin relating to tabs. I just assumed you were mistaken for the autoscroll plugin. You're absolutely right, it uses the exact same code. I'll re-open this and fix it in the 1.2.6 release.
Again, my apologies, should have read this closer.
hey i'm unable to actually get these animations queued. Can you tell me what effect you're using to make it happen?
Oops - it seems you were right leblangi; I can also replicate this issue. I've mailed a copy of the code I've used to test for this to bradrobertson, and asked him to have another look.
For the record - I was using FF6; I had the slideshow running for a good 15mins, and it ran through the queued animations as soon as I reverted back to the tab that had it running.
thanks for that alex. this is now fixed
Thank you all for the support.
