Graphical Corruption on ubuntu 18.04

more options

I was using my browser just fine until today. Whenever i open it, the whole window becomes corrupted. Its impossible to read the screen when its in that state. However, when i open it on safe mode, the screen its just fine. No corruption or anything. I already cleared the startup cache, closed tabs and checked for updates and nothing seems to work. I installed the snap version of firefox from ubuntu software and its just as corrupted as the integrated one. Please i need help. Here's the log from normal mode and safe mode

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

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