I did try all of your possible solutions BUT still the same problem for me (At "Perkins", background turns "BLACK").

I did find that if I change the "display size" to under 68%, the complete Web page background will display (seems still to be a memory problem).

Like I said, all other browsers that I tried, worked fine, still pointing to a FireFox memory problem.
