Hi sk54720, You might want to try this suggestion from a similar thread: (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1264283)

@cor-el said: This could be a problem with the WebRender feature. You can check the about:support page (Graphics) to see whether WebRender is active.

Try to set this pref to false on the about:config page.

gfx.webrender.picture-caching = false

Close and restart Firefox after modifying this pref for the change to take effect If this didn't help then modify this pref as well and restart Firefox.

gfx.webrender.force-disabled = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-config-editor-firefox
