I have been waiting for a graphics bug in xorg to be fixed for six months. Reading up on this bug indicates that the bug has been fixed upstream a while ago, but it hasnt even appeared in the latest Intrepid Beta. This bug ruins the zoomed grapics in Firefox and Opera, and I often use the page zoom as I have a high ppi display.

I have posted more details in these posts here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=841739) and here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=867161). I have commented on the bug report here (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox-3.0/+bug/217908).
I have been using ubuntu for well over a year and I have done my bit in encouraging and helping people use ubuntu, but for the first time, I'm feeling really frustrated with the lack of response from the community. Is there anyone out there who can suggest how I can incorporate the patch on my own? Please...I'm posting here as a last resort.
