Shopping cart icons in the Bookmarks menu

Sometimes after running TFF for a while I get these little pink shopping carts that briefly show up in the Bookmarks menu before the normal icons appear. Anyone know what could be causing this? I realize the way Firefox handles the Bookmarks menu icons is totally messed up and user unfriendly.

I'm a Yahoo mail user and for a long time their old site wouldn't display any Bookmark icon at all, but last month they forced all the users to an updated site and now it's displaying a Bookmark icon properly. I thought that could be causing the shopping carts to appear but that apparently wasn't the problem as they still show up.

It's not a huge deal because the carts are only there for a split second but it kind of bugs me.

    There are a number of graphical glitches that basically boil down to an initial display appearing before previously allocated memory could be reset. On current systems this occurs too fast to be noticed, but there are some of these bugs still visible in TenFourFox because our systems are slower and/or not usually multi-core. I agree they can be annoying, but they are nearly impossible to track down because they tend to be very dependent on what the browser and the rest of the computer are doing right that second.

    (Other places you can see this is when resizing a window and certain other icon-oriented display lists. The root issue is the same, but they are difficult to fix.)
