Public bug reported:

Today I attempt to visit the page http://www.selfitalia.it/store/perugia
and as soon as the page has been loaded the whole screen (including
panels and desktop) became fuzzy. Closing firefox or restarting gdm from
a console has no effect. Firefox closes but the screen remains garbage
and the same after restarting gdm, only a complete system reboot
normalizes the situation.

Visiting again the same page gives the same result.
