Just noticed my screen was flickering while scrolling any pages. I tried activating and deactivating the hardware acceleration and stills the same. Im using firefox last version and this issue doesn't happen with Internet explorer. I also have problems with flash from time to time where the solution is simple disable it or restart firefox. I also have flash last version.

Chosen solution

Safe mode disables all add-ons and user settings. If it still happens with all add-on disabled, then it may be a setting under about:config

Select Advanced > General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?

Then restart.

Hello,

If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article to find the cause.

When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help others with the same problem.

In safe mode works good. I turn everything off (addons and plugins) and restart but still happens...
