Certain web pages on Mozilla cause my screen to go funny.

Certain web pages cause my screen to "go funny" with horizontal lines
for a few seconds, then leave it looking ugly until I log out of GDM
and back in again.  This happens only with Firefox and Mozilla; I can
look at the same pages in Konqueror and Galleon.  It used to happen
occasionally on slashdot.org (usually on Apple-related pages, I think)
but not www.theregister.co.uk is giving me trouble.  I use XFCE4 but
I've had the same problem in GNOME.

Here's a screenshot of the after-effects.

Below is some information I think might be relevant.  Please ask for
anything else that might help.
