Build ID: 20111104165243

Steps to reproduce:

On WIN7 using FF 7 or 8, the password manager will not run nor can you save bookmarks.  The system in question is a Dell XPS 15z using a NVIDIA 525M video card.


Actual results:

Using the NVIDIA Control Panel, and turning off Vertical Sync fixed the problem.
Running FF in safe mode resolves the problem.
