okay buddy.. I've uploaded a version with a lot of stuff disabled. I want you to go to http://www.alexhw.com/pixeledit/ and try drawing in the primary viewport. Let me know if it works. If it doesn't I have some other things I can try disabling.. The secondary viewport is disabled also, so don't expect to see anything in that..
Very interesting. Yes, that works fine, including changing zoom level, panning, and even drawing in the colordex as you mentioned. I've verified that drawing in the colordex has no visible effect in the non-cutdown version.

I have also noted that eyedropping always returns black, both in the cutdown and non-cutdown version. In chromium, it returns the correct color.

Okay, that is good to know.. I've reenabled a portion in the cutdown version. If you can check the http://www.alexhw.com/pixeledit/ and see if it still draws in the primary viewport, that would be good. Sorry about this slow process, but I think we're getting closer to the issue.

Yes, this appears to have exactly the same level of functionality as the previous iteration (the one in which I can see what I'm drawing).

Don't worry about the slowness, I am very familiar with the demands of debugging.

I've just tested on Midori, which uses the same underlying technology (WebKit) as Firefox. Results: exactly the same as FireFox, for both the cutdown and full versions. This relieves a concern I had, which was that the problem could have arisen from a bad interaction with a Firefox addon. Clearly the problem is in some kind of interaction with WebKit.

okay, cool.. I've updated the cutdown version. I re-enabled some things. I have a suspicion that it won't work this time, but go to the alexhw.com/pixeledit page and check if it draws. If it still draws, then the problem might be in one of two places that are still disabled, otherwise if it doesn't draw, then the problem is with one of the things I've enabled.

Yes, that still works just as well.

Mouse-wheel zoom is reversed from the norm for me. Wheel up zooms out, wheel down zooms in.
If I keep the mouse still and zoom in and out the canvas wanders to the right.

Okay, Ai, I've re-enabled another thing. I think it shouldn't work this time. Check the alexhw.com/pixeledit page to see if it works or not. I'm pretty sure it won't draw this time.

Surt, I now implemented an invert option within the Settings. It should remember your settings too. I'll look into the zoom shifting issue.. I've noticed it before, but I haven't got around to fine-tuning it.

Yeah, looks like you've located it, this iteration has the same problem as the non-cutdown version. Just for completeness, I'll specify that I've tested that neither the main canvas nor the colordex update. (I guess you're sharing much of the same code between them)

Okay.. I think there's two possibilities left as to what could be the issue. I've disabled some parts that change the globalCompositeOperation of the canvas.. Check the alexhw.com/pixeledit page to see if you can now draw again on the primary viewport and in the colordex.

No, I can't. Same behaviour as previous update.
