    Firefox 74 graphics abberation

    When using FF and typically Netflix, in scenes of movement, there are artifacts around the moving sections like horizontal raindrops, very thin. Static scenes are perfectly good.

    Ive tried no acceleration/recommended and other settings, started in safe mode, Plugins installed, but the issue does not change. No such issue in Chrome or ElectronPlayer.

    Hardware is a Lenovo E590 Thinkpad, but clearly its not a hardware issue as it only appears in Firefox.
    Any ideas? Thanks, Al.

    It seems to be a known issue and some claim its fixed in ver 76 (which I dont have). The reported issue is a single line through the video which differs from my perception.

    screen tearing.

    but it is not a firefox only issue, you will experience it even with your media player. i have faced screen tearing only with debian, never with 'buntu.

    That sorted it thanks, very odd as other players did not show the same tearing.
