Microsoft EMET for IE 6, 7, 8, 9

Just applied the fix-it issued by Microsoft for IE8. Running XP SP3
Since the fix-it was applied, noted that another browser used, FF 15.0.1, no longer is displaying artifacts at the bottom 10-30% of the browser window when scrolling the page up or down to view content. Did not matter what site was viewed, some sites affected less or more than others.
This artifact was quite noticeable and annoying; it was a transient black area that appeared only in the bottom with no web content displayed. It seemed to have a flickering effect on the bottom part of the window when it appeared as scrolling was called. Black area always disappeared when window was not scrolled.
Anyone else note this behavior? Always use a sandbox when using a browser, whether IE or FF. What was a possible cause?
Not running any version of java on this system. Running the latest version of Flash Player.
