Hi forum,

 

I find that if I right click a link in FF, the pop out menu will got a black background screen.  If I move the pointer to the black area, then the selected item will become clear back to normal.  It looks like a re-freshing problem to me, but I don't know how to solve it.

 

It has no problem in my ie and Chrome, only in FF.  So I don't think it is my display card problem, most likely is FF's setting.  I have no idea where in FF to set it right.

 

Please help.  Many thanks to your reply.

 

(I'd like to post a jpg and show you  what exactly it looks like, but I find no function to do it in the forum's edit tool menu.)

Sorry, I tried it.  But, it stays the same.  More than that, I have to find all my missing plug-ins and go back to my preference stage of FF.

 

Any helps ?

 

Thanks to all of you.

Did you update Firefox to the latest version (20)?

I'm using FF ver 20.0.1 (stable built) but not the latest ver 21.0 Beta 6.

Yes, I just tried to re-install it.  Same problem.  I am wondering if other people have the same kind of thing like me, a re-freshing problem with mouse right click's sub-menu.  I know it is no big deal, but still no good to have it.  It bugs people anyway.

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

  • Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
