How can I stop the ripple across the screen when scrolling down since I upgraded my Mac to Firefox 4 ?

Posted

Since I upgraded to Firefox 4 I am getting a horizontal ripple across the data when scrolling down, which is very disruptive and uncomfortable. How can this be corrected. I am using an IMac with Mac OS X 10.6.7 ?

Same problem on Imac with updated software. Had problem in earlier versions and changed key : <key>CGDisableCoalescedUpdates</key> <true/> to false and that resolved the problem. It helps somewhat with Firefox 4, but not enough. Is this just a Mac problem or are PCs having the same problem? This may be enough for me to switch browsers or go back to 3.6.
