Firefox 18 window starts flashing and rolling.
Since updating to the new Java Firefox 18 will randomly go into full screen mode and the display will start flashing and rolling. I have updated all plugins and run multiple security and diagnostic software scans and found nothing. Everything else on my computer is working normally.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
