User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0
Build ID: 20151029151421

Steps to reproduce:

The issue usually occurs when I minimize firefox and then restore it.  Sometimes it will also happen when simply regaining focus after losing focus and disappearing behind another window

Actual results:

The screen and toolbar view will not display correctly.  The objects in firefox's window (for example the bookmark buttons and file menu items) will reappear only after running my mouse over them, but the graphical glitch will remain until I once again perform the same action which caused it to occur, ie minimize then restore the window.  I have been having this issue ever since I started using windows 10 and it is really starting to damage my calm.

Expected results:

oh I don't know, how about displaying the window correctly.  Baby steps mozilla.  The attached image shows mozilla's title and toolbar area located at top of the window, where you can see even the minimize, maximize, and exit buttons are visually distorted.  I would have expected an issue like this to be reported/solved sooner, but oh well.
Thank you for the report. That seems to be an issue related to the graphics drivers. Please check for new graphics driver and install them like described in

Then restart the computer and launch Firefox again. If you still see the issue, please provide these information here:

Thank you fort your response sir.  I was pretty sure it was a graphic card (whether it was driver or hardware failure) issue, due to the nature of the issue.  I use a automatic driver update program (ioBit driver booster 3) to keep my drivers up to date with the most current drivers, yet this is still occurring.  This seems to be only an issue with windows 10, so could it be an issue with graphics driver and windows 10 comparability?

The graphics driver might behave differently on Windows 10 compared to previous versions. Please provide th information from the Troubleshooting Information page like described here:
That enables developers to check if similar hardware has the same issues.
