After applying the latest update for Firefox ( 3.0.1 ) all my icons in Gmail have a mysterious red border box(looks like an incomplete red padding) around them. All the icons star(s),green dots,chat icon etc.

If i reload the page, the red box disappears, but if i navigate again to a mail or any other area within Gmail , the Red border box appears.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to your gmail account
2. Watch the irritating red box around your icons
3. Reload to see them disappear
4. click on inbox just for kickers again , to watch them re-appear.
Actual Results:  
I see the irritating red padding around my otherwise beautiful icons.

Expected Results:  
I do not wish to see the red border, but in fact the plain icons by themselves.

This happened as soon as  i updated my Version of Firefox from 3 to 3.0.1 (i.e when i applied the latest update).
Could you attach a screenshot of what you're seeing?

I have exactly same problem and find a reason:
- It's something about the Firefox zoom feature.
Turned off the zoom and the issue was gone.
Hope this would be usefull.
