Occasionally some websites will render a few icons of some particular type in a weird way. It's this crisscrossed celtic-looking pattern of yellow green and red. It's not a monitor or GPU issue, although does sort of look like my GPU is broken.

Here's an example. Curiously enough, this happens occasionally but here are some concrete examples where it ALWAYS happens. On 10forums, EVERYONE'S profile looks this way. https://www.tenforums.com/drivers-hardware/111899-stereo-mix-no-longer-appears.html

(look in pictures)

And so this didn't matter because this happened like once when I was doing a captcha, the whole captcha was rendered weird, and on tenforums. And almost never anywhere else.

But okay now it's a problem. A newgrounds game is rendering weird. (image attached) The boxes move around a tiny bit, they walk up and down.

I have to use chrome to fix this issue.

Anyone know I should do? I'm like 80% confident I've tried disabling ALL extensions but didn't fix the issue. I can try again if you really think it's important.

All of a sudden I have to log in to all the common websites I use such as Yahoo mail. It could have been something I changed but I don't know what. From what I understand it may have something to do with the setting Cookies and site data. I think that if the box that says "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is checked then the log ins will not be remembered. The problem I have is that particular setting is ticked and it is shaded and I cant uncheck it. Can someone provide a simple solution please?

I found some infos but I do not trust myself just deleting the files in question since they ared all over my system. The following I found per malwarebytes which found the pups every day up to now:

PUP.Optional.DefaultSearch is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a family of browser hijackers targeting Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Symptoms The browsers’ default search engine was changed to one that belonged to the threat-actors. I am german so probably I need your patience in helping me to clean my system resp. Mozilla.

Looking forward Ingrid

About a week ago, Firefox began occasionally opening a webpage or even my Google login window in some random language. Opening a new tab and closing the errant tab would result in the same page opening correctly in English. The language used when Firefox erred was never the same twice. In the last couple days the rate of errors has accelerated. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Is someone other than me using my Firefox credentials?

After the 90.0.2 update, the bookmarks menu no longer scrolls with the center wheel of my mouse. The center wheel scrolls properly in my emails, on webpages, everywhere else but the in the bookmarks. I have to use the up or down arrows to scroll through them, and it's a royal pain because I have so many bookmarks.

In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

I use Win 10 desktop. Recently FF 92.0 started crashing frequently. Not sure whether this is a browser issue or whether it has anything to do with the recent Dell chip set update software.

Downgraded to FF 91.0 which do not appear crashing. However, I noted FF uses a huge amount of memory, and FF does not properly shut on Exit. Task Manager shows FF lines for about 30 seconds after exiting FF.

Is this something to do with my setup or something not right with FF?

I want to disable all of the automatic suggestions and autocomplete functions. I am totally blind, and I have recently had problems with a suggestion appear which was wrong! I entered my four-digit address, and the autosuggestions popped up several addresses - ALL OF WHICH WERE WRONG! I was very annoyed arrowing through the items, listening to them spoken, and finding that NONE of them were correct. I got lost in one of those darned suggestion systems while finalizing an order and eventually closed Firefox and started the process over. I had those darned suggestions turned off at one time, but they must have come back on when the last update occurred. So i want to fix Firefox so that it will simply let me type in the needed information - address, or whatever is needed - with no suggestions popping up - hopefully so they will stay off PERMANENTLY!

First off, I'm kind of a nincompute. So, simply, my bookmarks always separate somewhere in the middle of the list. Each section is alphabetically arranged.

  But why does this happen? I choose to sort by alphabet, so I should have one list with all the A's in one place, etc., instead of two lists.
  I never chose to divide the list, and i can't figure out how the bookmark genie picks what goes where.
