Application is shaking on opening or closing a new tab in Windows Vista, which makes it very difficult for the user to read.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the link http://www.yahoo.com in Mozilla Firefox.
2. Middle click your mouse on a link (say Web) to open a new tab.
3. Close the newly opened tab and observe.
Note: Note that the bug sometimes occurs in steps 1, 2 or 3.
Actual Results:  
The window starts shaking up and down.

Expected Results:  
The window should not shake.

It is observed that the above scenario is reproducible for most websites.
It is also observed that the shake is stopped when a new tab is opened from Menu > File > New Tab and closing the new tab.

Windows Vista Beta2 build 5472

I found the same problem with Mozilla Firefox 1.5. So it's not regression issue.
