User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0
Build ID: 20160802030437

Steps to reproduce:

- Go to a a trello.com board
- open a card
- close a card
- do stuff


Actual results:

The board is flickering.


Expected results:

No flickering.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0

I have tested this issue on Ubuntu 16.04 x64 with the latest Firefox release (48.0) and the latest Nightly (51.0a1-20160807030201) and could not reproduce it.
After navigating to trello.com. I have created different boards, changed their color, opened new lists, added cards, added labels, dragged cards from a list to another, edit them, closed them, switched between boards but I haven't encountered any flickering.

Can you please retest this using a new clean Firefox profile, maybe even safe mode, to eliminate custom settings as a possible cause (https://goo.gl/PNe90E).

I tested it on safe mode. Ubuntu 14.04 x64 Firefox 51.0a1. It is not automatic but it appends a lot when I'm closing or moving a card. My board is pretty active (11 columns and a lot of cards). Trello is always heavy on Firefox anyway if you compare it with to Chromium.

I have retested this issue on Ubuntu 14.04 with the latest Firefox release (48.0.1) and still could not reproduce it.
However, using the latest Nightly (51.0a1-20160824030337), I've managed to reproduce it and performed a regression.
After logging in to trello.com, when dragging a card from a column to another column, you can observe that the column and sometimes the hole window is flickering.

Here are the regression results:

Bug 594876 looks suspect in that range. acomminos, does anything in here sound related to layers acceleration on Linux?

It's possible- what kind of flickering is being seen here? Appearance and disappearance of the cards, tearing, or something else?

If you could provide the contents of the 'Graphics' section of your about:support, that would be immensely helpful as well.

To me, it's more like appearance and disappearance and slow reaction.
