Firefox window turned full white, glitches or not responding.

With my new PC, Firefox is crashing very often. I’m finding myself in front of a not responding browser or just a fully white window. In some cases the web-page elements became full black or there are some graphical glitches (in text, images and videos). The solution was to minimize/maximize and wait for some time, change the focus to other app, move one tab to a new window or simply scroll up or down. This solutions sometimes work, but most of the time they doesn’t and I need to open task manager and end Firefox. I have the latest Firefox version (51.0.1) and latest graphic drivers.


Well … the the actual solution to this problem is quite simple. You just need to disable “Disable Hardware Acceleration“.

1. Go to “Menu” -> “Options

2. Go to “Advanced” and disable “Use hardware acceleration when available“.

And that’s all. Hope it helps!
