Moving cursor over any http pointer causes displayed pop ups to flicker on/off. started with v18.0

Posted

First noticed when I tried to save bookmarks. Started with Version 18 update.

Chosen solution

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.
