Well, but it does not just use slightly wrong colors but totally wrong.
Looks like it doesn't care about the already allocated colors if they
don't match exactly with its needs it doesn't use them for approximation
or dithering but does something that I cannot yet understand - the
colors are _totally_ wrong.

So yes, it looks like a Mozilla bug from this angle.

It might also be a problem with specific visual type...
