This may be related: after upgrading to 15.10, I noticed that Firefox UI text is being rendered a little too high. The text in the URL bar is a pixel or two higher than I remember -- it's easier to see for URLs that begin with HTTPS.

This is happening in multiple places: the URL bar, the search bar, the status tooltip. Perhaps the height used for drawing the text doesn't match up with the height used for drawing the selected-text rectangle?
