I can confirm this issue. Seems to be related to the usage of flash though.

Works well in Xxxterm. You should report this to the FF/Mozilla guys upstream.

we can compile firefox without system cairo support.

Crash is fixed with cairo-1.12.0-2

Still some text corruption, but nothing too much annoying (at least for me)

I had the same issue, with a site containing flash content. It also happens with the URL in the task's description. As suggested in  FS#29218 , downgrading cairo to 1.10.2-3 is a temporary fix.
