Since nobody else responded, here goes nothing...
ISTR there being some problems with certain graphics libraries and
dual-headed configuration - Firefox uses GTK+, IIRC, and the ports
dependencies support this.
You could try to narrow down the problem by using other GTK+-based
applications, especially some that use a lot of graphics; if those show
the same problem, but stuff that doesn't use GTK+ doesn't (for instance,
plain xterm but also Qt-based apps; most of KDE, that is), it's likely
to be a GTK+ problem.
If this is the case, you could try upgrading GTK+ (from -current, for
instance) to see if the problem goes away (though that is not
supported), and/or file a bug report.
It might also be Firefox-specific, in which case upgrading to -current
might help as well.
In either case, do report back! This is something that could bear a
