When I load any pages on this forum, and several other forums I have noticed as well, I arrive where I just see the background, and sometimes the image borders around where the text should be. No site logos or text will appear at all. If I scroll the page, the parts of the page that are just being shown contain text, as they should, the rest will stay blank, unless it leaves the viewable area of Firefox and comes back into the viewable area. Also, resizing the Firefox window makes all content viewable immediately. Bug did not occur in Firefox 3.6.15.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load Page
Actual Results:  
Could not see images/text

Expected Results:  
Able to see images/text.

Same problem:

1. I try to go to http://ep00.epimg.net/descargables/2012/06/01/f05cf2f064d5c54e370427b0bfb31315.pdf and get a blank page.

2. While keeping Firefox open, I go to Internet explorer and try to access same page. PDF is showed correctly.

3. I return to Firefox and reload page, obtaining not more a blank page but a correct view of PDF. 

a. I'm behind a Squid proxy and can't access directly to internet.
b. My Firefox Version is  15.0a1 (2012-05-22)
c. My adobe plugin version is
