I can reproduce on Linux, but not on Mac. CCing karlt, since it seems to be some kind of a widget issue...
Initial observations: If the main window is fullscreen (or, less ambiguously, full-monitor), there is always a black flicker over the whole window (not the whole screen) when the popup is shown, regardless of the position of the main window on the screen, suggesting that either the popup is initially shown fullscreen, or the main window is painting when it does not expect to be. This issue is present even in Firefox 4. It does not happen in the maximized, no border/titlebar situation (where this bug demonstrates). This bug happens only when top-left of the main window is at the top-left of the screen (i.e. 0,0), regardless of whether it occupies the whole monitor rectangle or not.
The extremely weird thing is that the code to create the popup widget has not changed at all, we just do it at a different time now...
I suspect what has happened is that the later creation of the popup widget means that a Resize has been skipped. When the main window is not at (0,0), this comes from nsView::DoResetWidgetBounds < NotifyEffectiveVisibilityChanged < SetVisibility. When the main window is not at (0,0) it does not happen because the bounds are already correct. In the GTK port, toplevel windows are not positioned based on the rectangle passed to create; they are only positioned if there is an explicit move or resize(x,y,w,h). This is appropriate for managed windows because it lets the window manager position main windows. It is not appropriate, however, for override-redirect windows because the window manager will not position these. (In reply to comment #6) > If the main window is fullscreen (or, less ambiguously, full-monitor), there > is always a black flicker ... That seems to only happen when the window manager is compositing, so perhaps that is an issue with the window manager.

Still need to come up with a test.
