As I move my cursor back and forth between the left and right panes of the Data Manager tab, the main windows of those panes flicker annoyingly. This happens when selecting [Tools > Cookie Manager > Manage Stored Cookies] or [Tools > Password Manage > Manage Stored Passwords] from the menu bar. However, if I select "All Data Types" from the pull-down list at the top of the left pane, the problem goes away.
(Even though you were earlier), DUPME: Bug 664088 - Display flickers when loading/scrolling/mousing the page until focus is changed ?
I think there might be a difference between this bug and bug #664088. I see this problem only with the Data Manager tab, not with other pages. On the other hand, many of the symptoms indeed seem the same. This seems not to be a problem with the Modern 2.1 theme (which I think is ugly), and the problem disappears if I select a different tab and then return to the Data Manager.
This also afflicts the Add-ons Manager tab.
Summary: Flickers on Data Manager Tab → Flickers on Data Manager and Add-ons Manager Tabs
Testing indicates that this problem is caused by something in the current Default theme. There is no flicker in the Data Manager when SeaMonkey is launched in Safe Mode (which disables all themes, leaving no theme at all enabled) and also not in Safe Mode when the current Modern theme is enabled. I really prefer the Default theme over the Modern theme and thus hope Default can be fixed.

This is no longer a problem with SeaMonkey 2.5 and its Default Theme 2.5.
