User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:23.0) Gecko/20130614 Firefox/23.0 Iceweasel/23.0a2 (Nightly/Aurora)
Build ID: 20130614004016

Steps to reproduce:

With a PRISTINE account, browsed
and hit CTRL++

Actual results:

Website flickers five seconds, then rests five seconds... over and over.

Expected results:

The text should have zoomed with no side effects, like chromium.
CRRL+- doesn't stop it too.

Does it flicker when zooming in with FF21?

Yes, I especially installed 21.0
  Version table:
 *** 23.0~a2+20130621004018-1 0
        990 experimental/iceweasel-aurora i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     21.0-1 0
        990 experimental/main i386 Packages
just for you, and got the same results.
And also if it on a slower or smaller screen machine, one needs not even hit CTRL++.

Anyway I'll include the Debian info. Regarding Flash version, I just filed (report version of .so files)

Can you please also try to reproduce this issue on other browsers? This website works extremely badly for me on all browsers. I don't see any flickers anywhere though.

Yes, various bad things in all browsers... flickering probably only with slower CPU... Hard to tell today as their site is slow. In chromium today I saw lots of overprinting...

I can not reproduce on a very slow vm on FF25. Have you tried with hardware acceleration turned off?

OK I turned it off as noted in
and then loaded the site and hit CTRL++
But I still the five seconds of flickering, five seconds of stability, five...

Can you reproduce with a new profile on the latest Firefox release with newest Flash Player?

The only thing I can see, is that the fonts in the flash banner need some time to render after you zoom out / in, but this would be a flash player bug and is not what you described.

Well as sjw says, All i can notice is a problem with font stablizing but that stabilizes in a matter fewer than 5 seconds.
