Is it the whole window blinking, or part of it?
What were you doing at the time? surfing, watching a clip, reading something . . . .
Is this with all websites/pages, some, a few?

Hello aslamsherwani,

In other threads (mainly on Reddit) I saw some people mention that upgrading their graphics drivers solved the problem;   for others disabling hardware acceleration did
the trick :

Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL

Worth a try .....

You can boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen or hold down the Shift key) to see if that has effect.
