Be sure your GPU drivers are up-to-date (you can enter about:support in the location bar and check the graphics section to have some details).

Honestly, I think it's an hardware issue with your GPU or OS settings.

Firefox uses hardware acceleration differently than IE, that's why you may not see the message error.
