There is a known issue in Firefox version 49 that causes images and text to display as smeared or streaky lines or tears while scrolling when used with certain older graphics cards. I understand you are using 76.0, which is the latest so shoud not retain the same. There can be a misconfig causing the same, so you may want to try this solution, please use the steps as in the link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/streaks-smeared-lines-or-blurry-web-pages-scrolling

Please note, it may ask to choose the datatype at one point in the steps, then go with Boolean.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

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

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.
