tsvikah, thanks for that info. Do you still see a problem in version 45 with HWA enabled? If you do still see problems, is it better with (in this order) 1. current beta version from http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/channel/ ? 2. latest NVIDIA driver ?
I have enabled the HWA flag now (Thunderbird version 45.6.0 ; restarted, played a little), and everything seems OK. No problems found.
