FF3 page layout messed

I upgraded my trusty old Firefox 2.x to the latest and greatest 3.0.3 and it seems to mess the layout of some sites. I see parts of user interface elements/desktop background and whatever mixed up with the actual content of the sites. What's wrong with it???


Webkit based Midori seems to do this also, but Opera doesn't. I also tried renaming the existing .mozilla directory to see if the problem was with my config. No help there. Strange... Maybe it's a problem with X?


It was a problem with X config, adding this line to the "Device" section of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf fixed it:

Option          "AccelMethod" "EXA"
