Lately ( maybe a month ) my screen started to act strangely when in the message center of Aliexpress . The power led in front of my lg 27ud58 lit up and the screen blinked in repetition . The same thing occured when in other site with an interactive design . After making sure i was running with the latest drivers, i tested those site with chome and everything was fine . This problem imitate a faulty cable but why not in chrome ? I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 for Win7 .

Let's start with:

Remove History For One Site {web link}

Open the History Manager <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> H.
In the search bar, enter the name of the site. Right-click on one of the listings and select
Forget About This Site.
This should remove all information, including any site settings

Nice idea . But it's still blinking once . It's seams to be initiate by me moving the right scroll bar or by copying some shipping numbers . Left the page for a while came back cliquing once in the scroll section and BAM . Thanks anyway .

Make sure all software is up to date.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Tested for a few minutes and no problem . Does it means that i can't use my adblocker since it's the only addon i have ? Thanks by the way .

It could be the work of one of your add-ons, or it could be Hardware Acceleration.
How to disable Hardware Acceleration {web link}

Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager.
Hot key; <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> A)

In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Disable a few add-ons, then Restart Firefox.

Some added toolbar and anti-virus add-ons are known to cause Firefox issues. Disable All Of them.

If the problem continues, disable some more (restarting FF). Continue until the problem is gone. After, you know what group is causing the issue. Re-enable the last group ONE AT A TIME (restarting FF) until the problem returns.

Once you think you found the problem, disable that and re-enable all the others, then restart again.
Let us know who the suspect is, detective.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode

Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, resets some settings, and disables add-ons (extensions and themes). If the problem goes away, that tells us one thing. If it does not, that tells us something else.


Try using the default theme.

Could you please run a tool from http://memtest.org/
in order to check the integrity of your RAM?

You will need a thumb or disk drive to install it on.


Do you let Windows handle the page file or did you set a fixed size ?
If you use a fixed size for the page file then try the former and let Windows handle the page file.
