You posted with 6.0.2 but marked this bug on trunk...on which does it occur?

Can you find the regression window?
Version: Trunk → 6 Branch
Version: 6 Branch → Trunk
It's on trunk. I'm not familiar with how to find a regression window.
Please attach a screenshot showing the issue. I have been unable to reproduce the issue.

Please also confirm if the issue occurs if you start Firefox in Safe mode and also post the graphics section from about:support (not while in safe mode)
Attached image screenshot
This is a screenshot from a brand-new profile. When switching to a new tab, right-click the active tab's favicon. If not reproduced, repeat clicking in the content area and right-clicking the active tab's favicon again.
If you hold the mouse for a while, you may find the dotted line appears when mouseup, almost at the same time as tab context menu pops up. It happens in both 8.0a2 and 9.0a1, but not in 6.0. I have no 7.0b installed.
1) You should update your graphics driver - the correct one looks to be

2) Still unable to reproduce on my system

3) Your best bet at getting traction is to either find another user that can reproduce (ask in support or on IRC) or find the regression range. Instructions are at on how to find the regression range.
Thanks for your guide. I have traced it back to:

Nothing in these ranges seems to stick out. I'm afraid someone will need to bisect this further by compiling Firefox.
Can you confirm this regression, Dao?
I could reproduce this a few days ago on Windows XP, but now I can't.
It seems fixed in the trunk, probably by bug 682338.

Last good nightly: 2011-09-11
First bad nightly: 2011-09-12

Depends on: 682338
