Display Problem in Iceweasel


I have been using Debian and Iceweasel for a few months now, and so far I haven't had any major problem. However, recently, Iceweasel began having this strange problem where fonts on a page would change color. For example, on the mplayer homepage (, the fonts would show up as some combination of black, purple, orange, red, and blue (instead of the correct color). If I scrolled down, anything below the area I saw when the page loaded would be fine, and if I scrolled up again, the page's fonts would be the correct color (although moving the mouse or opening a window would cause the colors to get distorted again, regardless of where I was on the page)

I have tried reinstalling (aptitude reinstall), purging Iceweasel, and changing the profile but neither corrected the problem. The problem seems to be happening only in iceweasel (Epiphany works fine). I have uploaded a screenshot of this problem (while viewing the mplayer homepage at at .

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Thanks for any help,

In the Panel at top of browser click on Tools. Click on Error-Console. Scroll down to see the color and fonts notes. Go to for some insight to the stability needed in different platforms. Good luck to YOU.
