I am having display problems with Firefox. The following thread on Intel Communities describes the issue and outlines how it is only with Firefox. https://communities.intel.com/thread/100807 . Does the team at Firefox have any insight into the problem. Removing hardware acceleration did not help for me (others also).

Here's the answer   sledgehammer100   posted in the duplicate   (flagged):

I did, and you will see from the postings on the Intel community that the updates did not fully fix the issue. It seemed to help some people but not everyone. it helped until just before the latest Windows 10 update in September, and since then it has all gone wrong again. Many people say if you switch to Nvidia when using FF it will fix the issues at the expense of battery life. But I have no idea how to do that and not sure I want to.

Hi sledgehammer100 We will bear in mind the details in the Intel thread you mention but what actually happens in your own case ? I think the problem in the thread you mention involved updating Intel graphics drivers.
