I am sure I am seeing the same thing after booting and while Firefox is loading. Though, once Firefox is loaded I no
longer see the square of desktop image. It only appears for a second or two.
Back in April when I first installed 10.4 I looked on the web for info on the strange space. Others were reporting it
and I never saw a fix for it. Haven't tried to find one since as I only see it for a brief time during each session.
Never happened on other distros....just 10.4.
I did find one mention of something similar. The fix was to disable all Firefox addons and then restart Firefox.
If the empty square goes away, then add back one addon at a time to find the one causing the problem.
That didn't work for me but it did for others.
Also, you said "staticy" which I assume means moving or appearing at different times. That isn't the case with me.
