Steps to reproduce:


Actual results:

The new download button introduced in Firefox 20 and the home button have a graphical error where they flicker when the mouse is near them and they never blend with your persona.  This has happened to me with the home button for many major versions.

Expected results:

They should look normal.

This also happens with the back button.  It should be noted that the only Windows computer I own that is not affected by this has a Firefox design that is different (I don't know why) although it is on the same version, 20.0.1.  The unaffected design looks more like square back buttons and the download and home buttons appear to just be icons.
Component: Untriaged → Graphics
Product: Firefox → Core
Could you please update your GPU driver?

Could you please also try the following, to see if you still reproduce the issue :

1) try this with a clean profile:

2) running in Safe mode:

Sorry for taking so long to reply but resetting Firefox did not fix it but starting in safe mode does.  The only add-ons I have are a persona, Norton Vulnerability Protection, and Adblock Plus.  The issue will still occur when they are disabled through "Normal Firefox Mode."

And also the Lenovo Y550 does not have a GPU update since it is 3 generations old.
Probably one of the add-ons you have installed is the culprit for this faulty behavior.
