[Bug 1026626] [NEW] after recovering from a freeze, application does not gain back colors


Public bug reported:

Firefox is suffering bug #1026579 which makes it lock up (freeze). The
freezes are intermittent, the pause between them during which Firefox is
responsive again last about 1 second, so I have a long series of
intermittent freezes during the space of several minutes. During this
Firefox grays out and get back its colors according to the frequency of
the freezes.

The problem is that after it stops freezing, it become black and white
(grayscale), the application doesn't get back its color (including the
Gnome minimize-maximize-close buttons, etc). It's a different gray from
the black when the app freezes, more like applying a grayscale filter on

Screenshot attached, with Google Chrome for comparison.

PS : if I open a new window, this one is not gray.
