I was not able to reproduce this issue every time. When the view gets stuck the following error is displayed continuously in logcat: 
09-25 19:38:09.580: E/libEGL(11872): eglMakeCurrent:684 error 3009 (EGL_BAD_MATCH)
Botond - Since this is fixed in Fx26 but broken on Fx25, do you think your APZC frame scrolling fix might help here too?

I assume you mean bug 904533 and related patches. It's possible that they are what fixed this problem. Kats has a try job for those patches applied to beta (https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=9299a59f7836), we can test them when they finish building.
Flags: needinfo?(botond)
So (a) I'm not able to reproduce the problem on a Nexus 4 running 25b6 so I can't see if the patches from bug 904533 fix it and (b) from the video it doesn't look like this is related at all to bug 904533.

In fact the symptoms are very similar to what bjacob fixed in bug 900020, except AFAIK that should have been limited to Android 4.3+ and this is on earlier versions. At any rate this looks like a GL problem rather than an APZC problem.

The fix coincides with the fig to m-c merge so I'm not sure exactly which bug might have fixed this.
