Graphics issue.

Type about:support in the location bar and paste the "graphics" section.

In addition, could you test with OMTC disabled (about:config > layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled = false, restart FF).

Your Intel drivers are outdated, could you update them to the latest version (15.28.22.3517):
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=23763&lang=eng&ProdId=3319
(it's probably the source of this issue, old drivers)

If the issue is stil present, try with OMTC disabled:
about:config > layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled = false

Even with OMTC disabled?
Wonder if we're close to OOM, another stage of something like bug 905902.

Since this still happens regardless of whether OMTC is enabled or disabled a regression window would be very valuable. There are instruction for how to do this here:

Atharvan, do you see the issue with 33.1? If yes, could you install mozregression and find a regression range please.

I don't know if this is the same but I get a black screen sometimes when opening new tabs/windows while Firefox is already running. I have tracked this down to my mouse being within a plugin like Flash while the new instance is running.

You can reproduce this by placing a window with Flash content near your Start bar, and using the Start bar to open Firefox. If you move your mouse outside the Start bar into the Flash area and then click the link you will get a black window. If you don't move your mouse outside the start bar into the Flash area the new Firefox instance will start as expected.
Does this still happen with the latest nightly?  There were recent bug fixes related to Flash, just wondering if it was the same problem.
I tried to contact the original reporter but the email bounced. Closing this as incomplete.
