Try to disable OMTC and leave hardware acceleration in Firefox enabled.

  • about:config page: layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver or otherwise disable hardware acceleration.

I am not computer literate so therefore your instructions are not a help, for me. Thank you, anyway, for your help.

You can check if you can start Firefox in Safe Mode by holding down the Shift key.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox if that helped.

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

You need to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.
