I been using Firefox over many years, but never came across this issue before.

Something videos and GIF are glitches and can't see anything until I reboot the system. So to watch any videos I'm using Edge now.

I have reinstalled the Firefox and even my AMD Graphics card diver and even checked with different setting is the graphics control panel.

Please fix this bug. Thank you.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

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

Hello, FredMcD. As I said before the video glitches all of sudden. And need a restart to fix that.

So I tried the safe mode and play some videos it's working fine now. So I will reset the firefox if will update the result in couple days.

Thanks man <3

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.
