Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0

I have two monitors on my computer, one of it works in pivot mode.
When I move Firefox to the pivot screen (fullscreen), there are some representation errors.

Have a look at:

When I put my mouse cursor over a link (hover) as long as the tooltip is displayed, the representation is corrected until I move the cursor back of the link. It seems to be, that this effect only happens the first time i have moved my cursor over a link on a site.

Also in web-forms the effect occurs, if you want to select a stored default value for a field. In this case, it is extremely disturbing since firefox constantly changes between incorrect and correct representation.

The black pixel line on bottom will always be shown, but is not needed.

In the meantime I have reinstalled my operating system and upgraded to Firefox 5, but the problem still exists! Does no one use Firefox with a Pivot-Display?

I can't use the context menu because it flickers all the time.
The error is really annoying, please take care of it.

Have a look @ ...

Flicker: http://screencast.com/t/msdgfKsigom 
Border: http://screencast.com/t/gbC0YdGyc

Interesting was that the upper border has disappeared at the beginning of the screencast recording.

Also, I've noticed that I must often double and triple click on a link, until it opens, when I open multiple links at the same time. It seems as if there would be a delay. My mouse will work fine in all other programs.

The flicker bug also occurs on tab and button context menus.
