Firefox Fix

Posted by jeggent on January 23, 2012

Today I am using my new Windows 7 PC that ITS brought over Friday. I just wanted to let you all know of an issue that I’ve experienced with the setup as delivered and the solution that I’ve found. Firefox was included which is good as that is my primary web browser. However, the menus were flickering and very difficult to use. I did some web searching and found the solution at this link: http://lifeonubuntu.com/firefox-dropdown-menus-are-flickering-on-2nd-monitor/. Spoiler alert, the answer is to turn off hardware acceleration.  This has completely solved the problem for me and does not appear to be effecting the performance at all.
