To re-create (preferably on a slower machine): Go to mozilla.org. Go to www.gopconvention.org (or other page with frames, especially along the left edge.) Note that for a second the previous page's content all moves to the right before being erased. Visually, this is quite unappealing. It also may give some problems due to extra bandwidth use when the display is not local to the browser. Also, it really shouldn't be being done - the page should be cleared before the new page starts to render it's frameset. I.e. a frameset should clear it's window, not just count on the frames to clear their portion of the window (which I'm guessing is what is happening).
I'd guess the frames objects are copies of the object showing the main page (still containing the last page viewed). As they are created, and repainted, they still show that page until they are properly initialised with the wanted page. Perhaps a clean frame should be kept in memory to copy the new frame objects from.
That sounds correct, and it sounds like a reasonable solution (clean frame object) if there isn't a way to simply create one (I'm guessing you're correct and it's being dup'ed from the current frame object). This might be related to bug 46646.
