Scrolling causes text to become jumbled

When I scroll pages of my website while using Firefox, the text becomes jumbled. It's like the text from the previous line/sentence is getting pulled down until there's nothing but a big block of letters (sentences over top more sentences...)I've tried other web browsers and this jumbled text issue does not happen. Also, I've tried using Firefox on other computers and this problem does not happen. So, it's just my browser that is having this issue. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, disabled add-ons, made sure I had the current version, changed the font size/type and nothing has fixed the issue.

Has anyone else had this issue with a website? Is there a fix?

Why does text on certain portions of websites, usually when adjacent text contains special characters, become jumbled into seemingly random sets of characters that are not in any way jumbled when viewing the source of the webpage? How can I fix this? | Firefox Support Forum | Firefox Help

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

In Firefox 4 and later Safe mode disables extensions and disables hardware acceleration.

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

If disabling hardware acceleration works then check if there is an update available for your graphics display driver.
