Hello, Since yesterday I found some problems with my firefox. In random moments top part of application (only menu, bookmarks, not actual website) is flashing. Sometimes as black square sometimes as white and black. It doesn't matter what sites are displayed/opened or which addons/skins are working. Nothing was changed between working OK and starting to do disco on my screen.

Steps I have done when trying to fix it: - Refresh app - Reinstall app (with clearing leftovers) - Removing all addons and using default skin - All drives on PC are up to date (and was before problem started) - Starting app in "help mode" (less flashing but still).

FF ver: 96.0.3 (64x) Windows 10 home with latest updates + Avast

Graphic card is OK, this problem only exist with FF. Using other browser solve problems but well... It is not FF.

Gif below (its that black single flash which is less problematic, but white one really is...)

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Close and restart Firefox after modifying the setting to make changes effective.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.

Hi, thanks for all response but before I try anything it stopped and works OK and stable o_O There was no single change in setup but well... It's working and I can't check if any advise will help with it. Thanks for your help, if it happens again I will try it :)

//Edit: Today this problem happens again but when I disabled hardware acceleration it stopped. So probably this is a solution.
