    Thanks! Do you know why hardware acceleration causes problems though?

    Well, not the very detailed precise technical reasons, but at a higher level I’d guess it’s because nVidia didn’t test every hardware configuration with Windows 8 and there’s an obscure bug in there somewhere.

    Doesn’t solve the problem for me.
    Tried even updating GPU driver.

    The only thing that fixed it (but the problem came back next day..) is the help in Firefox menu->Troubleshooting Information then reset firefox at the web page that opens.
    But as I said, it only helped for a day (tried several times)

    Any other suggestions?

    I have a nvidia g210m fixed my firefox issues instantly, I thought it was a windows 8 issue and waited for mozilla to update their software

    I had also Problems with just installed new AMD Radeon HD 7870 under Win8 with the current FF 20.0.1
    I got many wrong pixel inside of the Favorite Bar.
    The solution fixed the problem.

    This looks like FF having a problem and not nVidea /AMD.

    Hi. I have a windows 8 laptop and I need to disable my hardware acceleration but I can’t find it anywhere, any ideas where it is please?
    Many thanks

    Are you talking about disabling it in Firefox? Does the option not appear in Firefox as described above?

    This problem has been bugging me since I started using Win 8.1… Unfortunately, it did not resolve the problem for me…
    Thanks anyway! Was worth trying…

    Thanks a mill! This recently started happening on my Windows 7 machine after the latest spate of windows updates. Couldnt quite place why the error was occurring, but I was getting random lines of text looking blurry about half way through the line. I couldnt find any resolution myself or struggled to find anything using google search about the problem. Then I stumbled upon this fix for Windows 8 when I was infact trying to fix another issue you posted about, Skype click in call screwing up css designs. What a great website – full of useful tid-bits. Keep it up!
