I have this issue since end of october (approximately), just when I
fresh installed FreeBSD 10.2 and updated to latest pathclevel (at the
moment) with freebsd-update and updated ports also. Then I've installed
xorg xorg-7.7_2 from packages and fluxbox fluxbox-1.3.7_1 from ports. As
I can recall it, I faced this issue before installing Firefox. That
machine has H61 chiset based motherboard and Pentium G2030 CPU with
integrated graphics, which xorg intel driver detects as Intel(R) HD
Graphics 2500. Also, I've tried older version of fluxbox (didn't
remember which yet) from sources with no success.
