Parallax web site that is flashing and blinking when it shouldn't

Posted 17 November 2012 - 12:13 PM

I have a parallax scrolling single-page site that I am working on, and for some reason, when you scroll down to the section called "services" or below (3rd and 4th sections), the page has a constant flash effect occurring. The contact section has even more pronounced "flashing".

I have no idea what is causing the flashing effect, nor any idea what to modify to get the site to stop flashing.

The site is under development on my local machine and can be accessed at

http://alisamii.dynd...ris5/index.html

By clicking on "SERVICES" in the navbar, the page scrolls down to the specific section and then the flashing begins.

It is a simple HTML file with jQuery and a few jQuery plugins.

I would copy code here, but I don't even know what to copy and I don't want to bore everyone with the entire code.

If someone can point me in the right direction as to what I should copy here, I'll add it. Otherwise, if someone has any idea what the problem is and how I can solve it, I'd really appreciate it.

FYI, using Firebug in Firefox and Web Inspector in Chrome and Safari, I was unable to find the problem. There are no errors or conflicts that I can find. The CSS is pre-processed using LESS and compiles without errors. The CSS is not minified and has debugging comments if that helps.

The plugins being used are:

contact-form.js
jquery.flexslider.js
jquery.inview.js
jquery.prettyPhoto.js
jquery.sticky.js
nbw-parallax.js
smooth-scroll.js

Also using 3 web fonts (extensions not included in the list for simplicity of reading):
BEBAS
fontawesome
League_Gothic

I uploaded a short screencast showing what I mean.

If you pause the video and advance frame by frame, you will notice that (around the 5s mark) there is a flash and it seems that the contents of the viewport gets momentarily hidden revealing the logo and company name from the very top of the page on a white background (but since the text is white, you can't read the text).

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I moved the site onto a remote host which should have better response times than my local machine.

Im using FireFox 16.0.2 and this doesn't occur. On my Safari not sure what version.. it does occur. I'd say post your html code at least from the services section and on down. Add your jquery etc..

And dunno if it helps but looks like the flash is white with a small blue circle in the top left corner of the screen flashing.
