Steps to reproduce:
- after logging in at facebook.com I was informed my account was migrated to the new react based frontend
When scrolling the newsfeed, the whole facebook page flickers which is rather irritating and ugly: https://youtu.be/ieJ3yOl5f7Q
Keeping in mind facebook.com is such a high traffic / widely used page, I thought reporting it would be a good idea.
I see the flicker with:
- The "classic" OpenGL backend
- The "classic" Basic (skia) backend
- WebRender (Software) - despite the flicker, this backend is also extremly slow
My system is a HP Elitebook 2540p (1st gen Core i5, Arrandale) running Linux.
The page should scroll withought flicker and fast, just like with Chrome.
