Certain parts of my screen get blacked out or mangled suddenly

I had a system update couple of days ago and since then, the firefox browser suddenly hangs or partially blacks out in certain areas suddenly. It sometimes corrupts the text/data on the toolbars, add-ons, etc.

It happens randomly. When I restart the system it works fine and then it happens again at random instance.

Not sure what is causing this. But this only began since Thursday.

Not sure what to do.

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.
