Seemingly random image corruption, vertical lines instead

Over the past 6 months or so, I've noticed that I occasionally get corrupt images where the images are replaced by semitransparent, randomly colored vertical lines, as seen in the provided screenshot. I am unable to reliably reproduce the issue, and it seems to happen somewhat randomly, but recently its started to occur more frequently.

I am on the latest version of Windows 10 Pro, and all of my drivers are up to date, to the best of my knowledge. I'm not entirely sure this is a Firefox-specific issue, and I seem to remember the same problem occurring in the default windows 10 photo viewing app, but I'm not certain about that, it might have just occurred when I opened my images for viewing in Firefox.

I appreciate any help or insight anyone can provide, thanks!

I have attached another example of the problem, from a website that I am most commonly able to reproduce the problem from.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

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