When closing Firefox 4, I find bits of bookmarks etc still displayed, requiring a screen refresh

When I move around the bookmarks menu and click on a link, the Bookmarks Menu closes but leaves a piece behind. The Bookmarks in front of the main Firefox window clear but if the menu overlaps the firefox window, a piece is left behind. Even if I exit Firefox, the piece remains as if kept in display memory. A screen refresh clears the display.

Try to disable hardware acceleration.

If disabling hardware acceleration works then check if there is an update available for your graphics display driver.

This has resolved the problem. Thanks. I now need to find 64-bit Windows 7 drivers for the graphics card.
