  after recovering from a freeze, application does not gain back colors

Bug description:
  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 it.

  Screenshot attached, with Google Chrome for comparison.

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