http://grupahatak.pl/  it's the example site that has those problems in left site divs. It always shows when I scroll down page. It may be connected to ubuntu ppa repository and version of firefox 4 with patch to use X server hardware smooth images scaling.

Reproducible: Always
Works for me, Firefox 4 RC1 on Linux x86-64.

Can you reproduce the problem in the RC1 build from mozilla.com?

If so, please upload a screenshot using the "Add an attachment" link. Thanks.

Here is a screenshot: http://img860.imageshack.us/i/p1020001.jpg/ I couldn't make it with ksnapshot under kde .5, cause when I tried to (it always disapears when I focus other window than firefox). It's from rc1 latest version, which I've downloaded to confirm that.

I've just done some more testing. It's debian wheezy with all recent updates installed through apt. I've tried nvidia xorg driver, but also nv driver without 3d acceleration and without compositing. I'm using kde 4.5. That behavior of firefox rc1 was present in both cases. It's the same as in 4.0~b13~hg20110309r63377+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~u, which I had been used so far. I couldn't try Iceweasel 4.0 package from experimental for debian repo at mozilla, cause it depends on libcairo2 version from sid so it would break other dependencies on wheezy.
Weird, looks like some kind of primitive scrollbar theme imprint.
Also, the background behind the white text is very dark compared to what
I'm seeing.  Can you attach the output from the 'xdpyinfo' command please?

It's dark cause the image was took by my lumix camera (I couldn't take it another way). It's normal, same as in previous debian firefox release I mean 3.5.x. (of course without that bug).

Ok I had some time and tried to narrow that problem.
When I delete "/home/myuser/.gtkrc-2.0-kde", everything is ok. Firefox looks a little uglier, but  that strange bug is gone. It's connected to settings in kde 4 system settings -> appearance -> gtk styles and fonts. If I change sth there, for example I set some theme from list (GTK Styles), it'll show that strange scroll bar, and it's appearance will be connected to theme that I choose.

There is some option "install scrollbar fix" in system settings -> appearance -> gtk styles and fonts, but when I try to use it there's error: no mozilla profiles found!. Profiles are kept in standard directory "/home/myuser/.mozilla/.firefox/". So I have no idea why it doesn't work. I couldn't find any manual fixes for that bug. It would be nice if final version of firefox 4 had that problem solved. It's strange, cause it appears only at some pages.
I tried a few GTK themes but could not reproduce the problem.
I can't find "install scrollbar fix" in my system settings (KDE 4.5.1 here).
Can you attach your .gtkrc-2.0-kde file please?

I'm using Xfce-curve and it gives me that white strange scrolls, but using qtqurve - standard kde 4 theme gives me some scroll bars like in kde other windows intead of that white one. Some other themes like Raleight are rather ugly, but it seems work fine.

ystem-settings from kde 4.5

So it's settings for gtk qt engine for kde. When I try install scrollbar fix, I've got message that there's no firefox profiles found. But anyway after googling for that feature I'm pretty sure that it's only fix for wrong painting of right main window scrollbar and it has nothing to do with that bug I have.

I moved to some qtcurve theme that is free from that bug. It's hard to tell if it's gtk2-engines-xfce themes buggy or it's firefox problem. It may be also package version dependant (debian always had slightly older packages than other linux distros). Bt that bug is only present in firefox, other gtk applications are free from it. One more thing I've observed is, when I set for example clearlook theme for gtk apps. Firefox doesn't have that bug with scrollbars, but pages with javascript (jquery for ex.) animations leave some trails after animation (some garbage on the screen).
