Faded leftover "burns" after using firefox

I have noticed that after using Firefox for a while when I close it the trace is left of the page I been watching or working in. Mainly it is visible through transparent windows (visibility stays after the Firefox window has been closed) and when the desktop background is changed to a dark blueish colour I can clearly see the faded Firefox page. Restarting PC changes nothing, the faded trace stays. It clears out after not using Firefox for a quite while. I really enjoy and prefer using Firefox to other browsers but this problem has been annoying me for a some time already. Any suggestions for fixes ?

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Close and restart Firefox after modifying the setting for changes to take effect.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.
