All tabs start to have their contents vibrate, shudder or jump up and down 3-4 times per second after loading a page or two. The problem may be caused by TGTSoft's Style XP windows skinner program.

When opening any combination of web pages in Firefox. I find that the pages
contents inside of the browser's tabs start vibrating up and down within a few
minutes of loading the page. This never happens when the browser is first
launched but regularly happens after entering a password to yahoo mail, loading
the website, going to, or any other set of web
pages I've tested. I'm pretty sure that the page content is not the cause of the
   This vibrating page problem occurs with only one tab open as well as with 2
or more tabs and occurs with both the v1.0 PR of Firefox as well as v1.0 current

   This problem started just after installing TGTSoft's StyleXP Windows theme
program v2.16 male. I would think that it was a bug in StyleXP except that IE
does not show any signs of similar problems, and the problem is evident even
with styleXP turned off or set to the XP default theme. Removal of the StyleXP
software corrects the problem. I'm not sure if this is a bug with Firefox or
not, but I thought it worth reporting since StyleXP is a fairly popular program
that may be used by several Firefox users.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install TGTSoft's StyleXP v2.16 male program and apply the default (Panther)
2. Launch Firefox v1.0
3. Browse to any website. Load a couple of different websites in different tabs.
4. This will start Firefox's browser window contents vibrating up and down evey
time for me.

Actual Results:  
The loaded webpages contents started virbrating up and down at a rate of 3-4 Hz.
Just the webpages contents vibrate though. The program window does not.

Expected Results:  
Web Pages should not vibrate. It's not normal. :)

Here is the relevent information on my system if it helps.

Possible problem software: StyleXP v2.16 Male with the Panther Theme applied. The problem
still appears with the WinXP default theme though.
