Actual results:

I have two monitors and Firefox 16.0.1 glitches on my secondary monitor (hardware has been tested; Good). The menu bar, bookmarks toolbar, and the right-click options glitch. The options dialog box appears, but the information/test appears and disappears and I have to keep moving my mouse to get glimpses of the data options.

My primary monitor has no issues. I also switched monitors and it's always the secondary monitor that glitches.

This glitch only happens in Firefox 16.0.1 and 17.0.1b.

Firefox 15 works fine.

Your bug is likely a dupe of bug 800701.

Could you test with hardware acceleration disabled in FF16/177 (Options > Advanced > General, then restart Firefox).

Yes, disabled hardware acceleration stops the glitch.
