Check your Windows Update History.

Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > View Installed Updates (you can search here).

Alternatively like pwillener suggested, looking at recently installed updates may be quicker.

@NomakeWan: if the latest Firefox doesn't have this issue, I'd suggesting looking through Firefox's patch notes and seeing what has changed. Assuming it was one of the changes, there might be a workaround. Here's a start but that only goes up to 19.0.2 and here is a quick search of some issues. Searching Bugzilla or posting on Firefox's forum is probably the best way to track it down. Again, if you can narrow it down to the two version, you should have an easier time searching for a resolution.

EDIT: Maybe looking through here too. I'm not all that familiar with how they bug track so I'm not sure what status to look for besides resolved.

EDIT: If you are feeling adventurous, you could probably get a tool here and try to debug it yourself.

hmm uninstalling the KB2670838 update might have fixed it... but only time will tell tbh since my micro stutter is random. @_@

how the hell did you figure out it was a windows update? lol all i see is that there are improvements and fixes with that update (suppose to make h264 run better and such). lol

Well, at work I don't regularly install those updates because it gets annoying if something goes wrong and you sit there a whole day without a computer. I noticed that, what was normally a problem that happens after a long time of leaving the browser open would happen pretty much immediately while playing Borderlands 2 - I would ALT-TAB and the browser would start "stuttering". Also, I briefly scanned through all the recent updates and noticed this one and found others with similar problems.

EDIT: Probably easiest to test is to run a game that uses DirectX and ALT-TAB back and forth.

well its weird, i never install optional updates in windows so not even sure how i installed it. I install mandatory/the ones that notify you when there is a update. Oh well, might have installed this one by accident when i noticed it was suppose to be a helpful update that helped improve my experience with things. So far since your post about it, haven't found any stutters. Also I never experienced the stutter with games (playing Tera right now while posting) it was mainly from downloading sites like gamefront, rapidshare, etc. Will find out definitely more during the week though, nothing really to download on the weekend :C.

Originally, this wasn't optional but due to feedback Microsoft has changed it to an optional update. Not entirely sure what its status is now.

Here is how the tabs overlap the Waterfox button on my Windows 7 machine. Notice also that the minimize, maximize and close buttons have a strange gap below them.

One of the images quoted below shows that the Firefox button is shorter than the Waterfox button. Perhaps the larger Waterfox button is pushing everything down, messing up the min/max/close buttons as well.

My previous version of Waterfox didn't have this problem. When I updated, this problem appeared immediately without me changing any settings. I also tried disabling all plugins and reinstalling Waterfox. I don't remember what version of Waterfox I was using before, but it was about 6 months old and hadn't been updated until today.

Re-download the installer, I updated some things.
Don't think he meant minimized, but specifically "not maximized", as in it's windowed, not full screen. However, maximizing does not fix the problem, but merely hides it because the tabs are no longer below the Waterfox button. On mine, when maximized, the strange gap below the min/max/close buttons is still there.

There they refer to people changing their appearance settings, like title bar size, etc. But I have not done this and Firefox 18 looks fine.

Perhaps this is the problem right here. The Waterfox button is too large for the space it's supposed to fill, forcing that space to enlarge and overlap.

Is this update affecting stuttering flash video playback also?

Can't say I know - I can't remember if I had Flash issues before or after the update. I'm thinking before but that issue went away for me somehow.
