Enable webrender on Firefox Nightly.  
Launch FF in maximized window mode.  

Visit any website and notice random flashes of white. 

OTHER ISSUES:
Also shadows behind text in tab titles are botched. 
And a white frame around Main Menu exists.

Whiteboard: [wr-mvp] [triage]
I ran into this while looking at something else with RenderDoc. Here is a frame during the flickering that is missing content. I also have a fairly similar capture that isn't missing content (might have scrolled a bit in between so not exactly the same inputs but it might be handy still).
Whiteboard: [wr-mvp] [triage] → [wr-reserve]
i just want to add a temporary work around to this situation,that worked for me, if anyone is facing the problem on Ubuntu. 
Goto -> Menu -> Customize -> Uncheck 'Title Bar'
I started seeing occasional white splashes after updating ~2 weeks ago. They are rare and pretty difficult to capture.
... Now that I tried to reproduce it specifically, I can't seem to. Will keep an eye on it.
Doesn't seem to be happening anymore. We can reopen if it shows up again.

I am experiencing Flickering with WebRender enabled on a Dell XPS 13. If I disable WebRender or stop using Firefox the symptom goes away. The latest Intel Drivers are installed and the system is up to date with Dell / Microsoft / Intel.
