It's due to the bold effect that you apply to the font. Firefox is doubling the number of bits to have a bold effect, instead of using a real bold variant of the font. This doesn't happen with other fonts, I guess that Monotype Corsiva isn't supplying the correct hints in its TrueType file (I don't know how to check that).

Either change the font, or remove the bold effect. 

The deeper issue is that Firefox isn't erasing the text during scrolling correctly, possible because there's a problem with the bold (and/or italic) effect. I can't back the bug or combination of bugs though.

It indeed seems to be font related. Using Minefield (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; nl; rv:1.9.3a5pre) Gecko/20100418 Minefield/3.7a5pre - Build ID: 20100418035844) I can reproduce the issue. Changing the font to Arial solved the problem.

This is just an issue with the latest release of Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3
And in the earlier versions, this was working perfectly fine...

Please, consider this as a bug and even IE and any other browser does not show this error.
