I have another screenshot in regards to this bug, which I have never seen before.

I was browsing on www.kobobooks.com and noticed the book images that are hidden below the current view are being copied over to the vertical scrollbar area.

Graphic Card = EVGA GTS450 PCI Express x16
NVIDIA Driver = 285.38
Windows = Windows 8 Developer 64-Bit

I'm observing the same thing on 7.0.1.

Is anyone looking into this bug?

I am not familiar with C++ coding, but after working with Nightly and Windows 8 for two months now, it seems like Firefox is not actively refreshing all elements on the screen under Windows 8 when Hardware Acceleration is turned on.  Sometimes I need to go to another tab and back to the original one in order for the page artifacts to disappear and render correctly.

This also occurs with the tabs on top (inactive / active).  I switch tabs, but the other one still appears as active.

Turning off Hardware Acceleration fixes this problem, but then I don't like how the fonts look.



Here is my Graphics Info:

Adapter Description = NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450
Vendor ID = 10de
Device ID = 0dc4
Adapter RAM = 1024
Adapter Drivers = nvd3dumx,nvwgf2umx,nvwgf2umx nvd3dum,nvwgf2um,nvwgf2um
Driver Version = 8.17.12.8562
Adapter RAM (GPU #2) = Unknown
Adapter Drivers (GPU #2) = Unknown
Direct2D Enabled = false
DirectWrite Enabled = false (6.2.8102.0)
ClearType Parameters = ClearType parameters not found
WebGL Renderer = Google Inc. -- ANGLE (NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450) -- OpenGL ES 2.0 (ANGLE 0.0.0.809)
GPU Accelerated Windows = 0/3

Platform should be both 32-Bit and 64-Bit, because the Bug Poster is using 64-Bit and I am using 32-Bit and the bug appears on both Firefox platforms.

Can we confirm this is specific to browser w/hardware acceleration enabled? I'm not having any trouble using GDI.
