Assuming that you do not have MODplug installed, look at the URL given. The plug-in placeholder is painted in white in about 5 places on the screen a split-second before the page content itself displays. You can see this since the background is dark, but the placeholder is white. I think this has something to do with reflows, but these "ghosts" still shouldn't be displayed. 2002020603/WXP
This definitely has something to do with reflowing. When a page is altered dynamically, the plug-in boxes flash. For example, if a:hover trigger a link to change its font, the plug-in boxes flash.
Sounds like what's happening in bug 105290. (Possibly related to bug 52280?) Changing component.

Actually its not just the plug-in placeholder.. its the plugin itself that is painted. I didn't have the plugin installed at the time so the plug-in placeholder would paint instead.
