Unhappy Some help needed. Firefox Nightly Bug

Hello everyone!
I normally don't ask for help, but knowing how knowledgeable many of you are around here, I would like to see if you experience the same issue with Firefox Nightlies as I currently am. Anyhow, visual artifacts such as black squares and multicolored rectangles appear on certain websites, Wikipedia for example. This seems to be triggered by expanding the drop-down arrows and scrolling around. Can anyone else confirm this. As a bonus, see if you can confirm this on other phones or the stock or a Froyo ROM. Since there are no stable ICS or JB ROMS out yet, please do not try it on there. It would help me out if any of you have a Bugzilla account, and commented on the bug report. You can see it here. I am trying to see what's causing it. Any and all help is appreciated. You can grab the Nightlies here. Thank you for your assistance. P.S. I attached a screenie to the bug report that shows what I'm talking about.

I'm currently not running Firefox on my mobile, but I always do on my PC, I tend to have issues like that when either flash or Java decide to stop playing nice with the browser

So my educated guess would be maybe hopefully Firefox nightlies are working on a way to change how flash and Java elements are read by the browser itself

Just a guess tho lol, ill look around and see If I can find anything online about it


Update: seems to be a general issue with Firefox after there Firefox 4 came out, I found atleast 6 different users having the exact same issue while running windows and the stable firefox, alot of them said turning off hardware acceleration completely resolved there issues, so it may just be a terrible nightly lol

No dice. Please read the entire bug report (I've done this before, too) and see that Firefox completely goes black when I disable hardware acceleration. Also, Firefox only has been doing this with recent Nightlies.

I read the whole report, knew you said it turned it black, was just stating that it seems to not only be the mobile version or he nightlies as all the reports I read were by windows users using the stable release

I saw atleast 2 of them say that turning off the acceleration did nothing for them but I didn't see anyone else list possible reasons or fixes , ill keep looking around

If you can, try installing Nightly on your phone, and see if you get black boxes when expanding the drop down arrows on Wikipedia articles.
