Steps to reproduce:

Click on a text entry box on any form that has completion drop downs. Google advanced search is a good example.

Are you saying the browser runs GPU specific code? Hardware faults wouldn't selectively appear in a particular aspect of browser operation. Especially something that has been working flawlessly until recently. And why does this behavior not surface in other browsers?

Sure, this is not about your hardware, instead it might have recent build issues that had trouble adjusting some specific machines, I have passed these things , you can see bug 1176506
Peter:

First, please attach a copy of about:support from Firefox to this bug report.

Second, please answer the following questions:
Which Linux distribution/version/desktop environment are you using?
Are you using the proprietary or open source GPU driver?
Are you using Firefox directly downloaded from mozilla.org or is it from some other repository?
Have you made any customization changes to the default installation? (please explain)
Have you made any customization changes to Firefox? (please explain)
Has anything else changed on your system before this started happening? (eg. system updates)
Does this happen if you try another Firefox version?
Does this happen with any other web browsers? (please explain which you've tested)
Does this happen if you try using an alternate GPU driver (ie. proprietary or open-source)?
Does this happen if you try another Linux distribution?
Finally, is this easily reproducible on your system? If so please identify detailed steps to reproduce.
