Reproducible on: Nightly 36.0a1 (2014-11-11) *intermittently*.

Additional notes:
- I was unable to reproduce this issue on Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 at all, so this might be aero-related. Firefox 34 Beta 8 (build1 / 20141110195804) and Aurora 35.0a2 (2014-11-11) are *not affected*.
- A regression range for this bug could not be determined due to its intermittent nature.
