Well, Tested with: Win98, Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.3+) Gecko/20010906 Set this as your default home page. Then CTRL+N (Create a new window). Try many times. Some cases the page is rendered different (like with black background colors). Then reload fixes.
It (seems) happens when the browser is rendering XUL elements.. I was able to reproduce this using the reload button: 1) reload the page 2) very quickly, click edit -> preferences So I think happens with new window, because the layout engine is doing the page at the same time we have the windowing (sidebar tab, etc ) creation process.
Will try to make a testcase.
Confirmed, 2001-09-07-03 on Windows 98 SE. Bringing up the preference dialog while loading http://my.aol.com resulted in tables with black background. I don't have that URL as my home page so this is not a precondition for the bug to appear.
