Windows XP SP3. This started with Firefox v.18.0. When any activity cancels the screensaver, all display returns as before, except Firefox. FF window will close using the corner "X", but no other toolbars are visible or functional. No new add-ons since the 18.0 update.

This is the closest to the problem I am seeing. When the pc wakes from sleep, some parts of the Firefox window appears black until I minimize/restore it, or close/restart it. Some parts of the window reappear if I mouse over it repeatedly. This is relatively new. I don't usually report minor problems like this unless they repeat.
