Since a few hours ago some web pages have started showing black rectangles on them which change position if i scroll or put the cursor over a clickable image or select text that is below the box.

 

The only sort of clue i can find for what is causing this is that an hour ago a got a warning that WebGL failed when opening Reddit.

I've been getting these squares on some pages recently using Chrome. It does not happen very often. I have not been able to trace the problem. Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration?

JohnC_21 suggested it 23 minutes after your initial post. That's why I always tell people to stick around. It won't take long. But they all disappear for days or weeks.

Just started having the same issue on FB only so far. 

 

Black square as described above. 

Currently in Chrome.

 

How did you fix the hardware acceleration issue?

Turn Off Hardware Acceleration in Google Chrome.

 

Open Google Chrome, and click Customize and Control Google Chrome > Settings > Show advanced settings.

 

In the System section, uncheck the box next to Use hardware acceleration when available, and restart Google Chrome
