Win8Consumer Preview Nvidia probs

I have two desktop PCs with identical MOBOs and processors running Win8CP, one has an NVIDIA GT220 graphics card and is on WiFI, the other is on integrated AMD 3000 graphics and wired connection.

The one with NVidia card shows odd artifacts around the close/minimise/maximise gadgets top right in Firefox (actually fragments from elsewhere on the display window) and also oddities in tab colouring with the same prog and also odd tab colour behaviour when mousing over certain areas of some websites (eg gmail). The other machine seems rock solid.

Other programs seem to run fine, inc. Opera, IE10 and Chrome running gmail.

I suspect the NVIDIA drivers or how firefox is coded.

1 Is this a known problem?

2 what further information might help resolve the problem?

3 Does anyone know of if there likely to be any further driver release?

4 Any other suggestions welcome.

Best Regards, George

For reference the mobo is ASUSTeK Computer INC. M3A76-CM

Re: Win8Consumer Preview Nvidia probs

Just so you know, Firefox doesn't officially support Windows 8 until Firefox 14, so there may be weird issues like this until that version is released. What you can do however, if you are sure your graphics drivers are up to date, is go to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/, and file a bug. The developers will look into the issue, and if it is a Firefox bug it will get fixed for the release!
