I open a menu, any one in Firefox 5. When moving the mouse over the menu, the menu items get highlighted but stay highlighted when mouse is moved away. When scrolling a large menu, such as the bookmarks menu, fast, the menu turns all black for a few second, 2-4 seconds. However, the small icons are still showing, but the text is gone.

This is the last resort from my side, so perform the steps mentioned in these articles and don't forget to Restart Firefox after each article and major changes:
