The problem is probably that in 8bpp mode, the X server will be using a
colour palette, rathern than true-colour. When Mozilla is selected, the
palette will switch to what Mozilla wants. When another app is selected, it
will switch to that app's palette.
I'm surprised that switching your server to 8bpp makes any noticable
performance difference. Are you sure you didn't mean to set the VNC Viewer
to request low- or medium- colour, while leaving the server to use 16bpp
