The only thing that I can think of that would be causing this is the compatibility tab of the shortcut for Firefox has one more of the display settings checked off. Right click on the icon you use to launch Firefox and select the Compatibility tab and look for the settings I suggested. 
This issue doesn't seem to be related to Software Update.
