This seems to be worksforme, using: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a7pre) Gecko/2007072304 Minefield/3.0a7pre Could you test with trunk build to see if this has become worksforme? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/
With the trunk build from that link, the problem is now intermittent. It continues to happen about one of every ten times.
A minimal testcase that would show it would be nice. You can add a testcase with the "Add an attachment" link. Note that when you click on the links before the fading in/out has been finished, I can see also some kind of image flicker, but that might very well be a problem with the script itself. But that's just speculation, it can only be known until a minimal testcase is made.

Created attachment 277744 [details] Test HTML file demonstrating annoying flicker This HTML file which loads two external images (from a German anti-spy campaign) and slides between them demonstrates the annoying flicker effect. It is reproducible with Firefox 18.104.22.168 on MacOS 10.4/PPC, Windows 2000 and Linux/PPC (Fedora 7) as well as with all older Firefox versions or applications using Gecko (like Epiphany). The effect is worse if the machine is slow and/or the images are large. The page displays perfectly with inter alia Safari 2.0.4 and Internet Explorer 6 on Win 2k! It looks as if the flicker effect is gone with firefox-3.0a8pre.en-US.mac.dmg (Aug. 22nd, 2007), again on MacOS 10.4/PPC. Is it possible to backport the fix to the mainstream Gecko releases, as the effect is *really* annoying?
@Albrecht, there were some major architectural chances between Fx2 and Fx3, so it's hard to tell what actually fixed this. Anyway, now Firefox 2 reached its end of life. Most people already updated to Fx3.
