Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040207 Firefox/0.8

I am running RH 9.0 in the GNOME desktop.  I have 4 workspaces.  When I switch
over to another workspace (other than the one Firefox is in) and I come back. 
The firefox screen shows me the content of the previous workspace and I have to
scroll around to get it to refresh.  I just updated from Firebird 0.6 and this
did not happen before the update.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a firefox window and browse any website
2. Switch to workspace 2 and open another application
3. Switch back to workspace 1 and you will see the firefox title bar with the
content of the application on workspace 2.

Actual Results:  
Even the Firefox toolbar is missing.  Using the scroll bar to move up and down
will cause the screen to refresh.

Expected Results:  
Automatically refresh the screen to the current workspace

This sounds a lot like bug 224103, but that's for Seamonkey.
