Can you try setting Option "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps" in the "Device" section of your xorg.conf, and restarting X?

This worked for me under NetBSD and FreeBSD, both using Xorg and Firefox 3. It looks like some image rendering optimizations have exposed bugs in at least some Xorg servers.

The other workaround which may give better performance depending on your chipset is;

  Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
  Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"

Solved the problem for me on i945 and i965 with xf86-video-intel.
