Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0
Build ID: 20160209234642

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open Firefox on 64-bit Windows 10.
2. Go to any website.
3. View the page.


Actual results:

Web console flickers on, then off, then on, etc. Endlessly. Makes the site unusable. This also appears when browser is displaying its Options window and about:config.


Expected results:

Web console shouldn't appear at all unless shortcut key is pressed.

More graphics issue for me.

Could you type about:support in the location bar and paste the section "graphics", please.

In addition, could you set gfx.xrender.enabled=false in about:config (restart FF to apply) and test again.

That will do nothing, as gfx.xrender.enabled is only a Linux setting. Reporter's specific STR says Windows 10.
