Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

While trying the current Hardy snapshot liveCD, using firefox
+2nobinonly-0ubuntu2, my firefox window suddenly went inverse. I.e.
black became white, red became cyan etc.

A screenshot is available at:

This was easy to workaround. Opening a new window (Cntl-N) provided a
window with the correct colors.

Disabling Desktop effects fixed the problem, and the problem did not
reoccur when Desktop effects where re-enabled.

My card supported 3D effects without any setup. It was a i945G:
