Description

I've been seeing a lot of flickering in browser content starting with yesterday's Nightly build. I'm not sure it's related to the update yet but the flickering seems to occur mostly when loading a page or when mousing over certain elements. So far I've seen it on Reddit, Google Docs, and Bugzilla. I have not yet been able to capture a screenshot of it occurring.

Assuming it is a regression from yesterday's build here is a pushlog:

System Info:
Firefox window is on a secondary display (1920x1080) connected to HDMI via Thunderbolt adapter on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013) with Mac OS 10.11.2 Beta (15C47a).

After an hour of moving the window to my main screen I have not seen the flicker. It only seems to occur on the second screen.
