This should fix the issue. Don't have a machine to test it on here, will try when I get home if nobody beats me to it.

Stop flipping when blitting the backbuffer to the window

This should be pretty easy to test, correct? Or would it already be caught in our tests?

Posted image Screenshot in Linux
I noticed this bug is marked for Windows, but I can reproduce it in Linux. The attached screenshot is from Ubuntu 10.10, with proprietary ATI driver fglrx 8.780 from the Ubuntu repositories. Graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro. It is Firefox 6 from the Nightly branch, build from 2011-05-08.
Yes, I've heard other people reporting it on linux too.

I can't think of any easy way, no.

It only affects the single buffered configuration (WGL and GLX with radeon), which we don't have test machines for.

It also only flips on the final blit to the window, so both the test and reference should always still match.

This bug is able to be reproduced in the current release version (Firefox 5.0). Did the patch not make it in time? :(
Yes.  This was checked in a month after Firefox 5 branched.

But still OpenGL rendering didn't work properly even in this bug is fixed. See bug #656565
