Firefox is flickering when typing any letter in Google search bar or when typing any initial letter in url link
Hello Firefox Support Team,
Due to the fact, it's very annoying what has happened with my Firefox, I really need your help and assistance. My problem with Firefox web browser is very simple.
Almost anytime, when I am typing any letter in Google search bar or when I am typing any initial letter in Firefox url link, so for instance "Y" to get into YouTube directly, Firefox always starts to flicker, tremple or how to call it.
Below is my shared video, what I mean and how it looks like, hopefully you would be able to see it:
I did the Firefox hard reset yesterday but it didn't work at all. I have disabled the HW acceleration in Firefox as I've searched already in web but it didn't help neither.
I have the latest Firefox version installed 67.0.2
Please help me because I love Firefox but this is so so annoying..

Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, resets some settings, and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).
If Firefox is open, you can restart in Firefox Safe Mode from the Help menu:
- Click the menu button , click Help and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled.
If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Safe Mode as follows:
- On Windows: Hold the Shift key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
- On Mac: Hold the option key while starting Firefox.
- On Linux: Quit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox -safe-mode
(you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)
When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "Start in Safe Mode".
If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps in the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article to find the cause.
To exit Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.
When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help others with the same problem.
