firefox display problem,i will try to describe the problem with images

Hello everyone,

The problem has been for more than two weeks now, and it is only in the firefox browser,
Here are some examples:

1. When I went to youtube I see the same image on many unrelated videos, example below,


I found that when I put the mouse over one of the images it returns to the original image of the video,

Another example is on eBay (look at the background):




It's quite annoying, so if anyone knows how to solve it, I'd very much appreciate it,

Many thanks
Rachel

No idea, having never seen anything about this oddity; given that, I suggest that you start here:

Standard diagnostic - Firefox - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

Try this, then report your findings; perhaps this will lead to a solution.

Finally, what a relief,
The problem was solved in step 5, when I turn off hardware acceleration,
Thank you so much, you were very helpful,

Oh, goody, it is only 20 April, and I have already done my good deed for the year 2015, and now I can go back to whatever it might be that I usually do....

Glad you found the fix; that is certainly the strangest hardware-acceleration problem I have ever read about There are a few truly brilliant "contributors" to mozillaZine who protest vehemently that all the people there do is tell those with problems to turn off hardware acceleration, a step that they know does nothing, and, therefore, the practice of telling people to do that must stop immediately.
