I can confirm with HA enabled (GTX560Ti). 
Firefox 7 beta + Win 8 DP.

Confirming, all sorts of graphical glitches occur in the browser chrome (tabs/titlebar buttons/toolbar buttons/etc) with hardware acceleration enabled in Windows 8 Developer Preview (latest UX Nightly, Nvidia GT230).

Confirming, Bug 687253 is a similar one, although on the latest firefox nightly

Ok, so:

D2D with layers = glitches
D2D without layers = glitches
Layers alone (D3D9) = no glitches
disabling azure makes no difference

Comment 8

This may sound dumb, but have you installed the official nvidia drivers(280.27), because I think the driver number you provided (8.17.12.8527
) means that you have the default microsoft driver, which performs really badly in games.

I, personally, installed the Nvidia drivers, but they do not fix this bug.

I have 285.27 beta installed. Last 5 digits of that number show the driver version. ;)

Oh, ok than :). I wonder why it is still not confirmed...

I can also confirm this happening on 2 of my machines running Firefox 7.0.1 and Thunderbird 7.0.1 running the latest Nvidia drivers.

These graphical glitches only seem to happen on Mozilla products, haven't seen it on any other application.

This bug should be confirmed.

Summary: GFX glitches on windows 8 (with D2D and layers) → GFX glitches on windows 8 (with D2D)
Confirming. Nightly running on Windows 8 build 8102 with nVidia drivers 285.38. Firefox is the only application having trouble. In addition, it seems to have something to do with image decoding, as images from content will sometimes leak into the chrome, as well as sometimes disappear in content as well (though that may also be a different problem).

Comment 14

Yup, I'm seeing the same thing with Firefox 7.0.1.

Same issues here with Firefox 9 beta with the Win8 8102 build on an Inspiron laptop with a Core2Duo and GeForce 8400M GS video.

Still seeing this on the "Consumer Preview". Haven't installed a more recent driver yet though, but I'm sure that won't change anything. It comes with 270.45.

bb10 , would you mind testing with hardware acceleration turned off to see if the issue persists.

A colleague has an ATI card, and doesn't exhibit this behavior. Seems like it might be an NVidia issue? I did a quick scan through the comments of both bugs mentioning this and saw all GFXs were Nvidia...

I'm experiencing this issue as well since installing Firefox 11.0b5 on Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Seeing all sorts of graphical anomalies, but as soon as I disabled Direct2D, all was back to normal. Here's my about:support page.

Can confirm.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560, driver version 8.17.12.9573 (latest I think)
Glitches in Firefox button and tab bar (wrong colors, stray pixels, fragments of page graphics - sometimes it's quite hard to tell which tab ist the active one as several tabs show the "active" color) AND SOMETIMES IN PAGE CONTENT, e.g. YouTube, start page (logged in), left bar (with abos and suggested abos).
Most of the glitches can be temporarily fixed by switching window mode (windowed-maximized) for a few seconds and then switching back, my guess is that some kind of visual buffer gets emptied then and when freshly redrawn, the components have no glitches. For probably the same reason, hovering the Firefox button will always correct its color; most times this also helps with tabs and page content.
This seems to be limited to Nvidia cards. Driver issue maybe?

I have the same issue here with FF 11. GeForce 9600M GT, driver version 295.73 on Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
Disabling d2d eliminates the glitch.
I'm seeing the same issue: enabling D2D causes visual corruption. GTX 570 using the NVIDIA 296.17 driver (WDDM 1.2 driver provided through Windows Update) on Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

I can confirm that disabling D2D stops the corruption.

Comment 30

yep, same here. however, ENABLING d2d does not start the corruption until firefox restarts (but I guess that's because firefox doesn't actually enable when you tick the checkbox)

Yes, enabling/disabling HWA needs to restart FF.

no, disabling has instant effect.

Comment 33

Driver 296.17 was released for Windows 8, but the issue persists. So where is the cause of issue? Nvidia driver or Mozilla Firefox?

Comment 34

IE10 has no issues. Anyone getting really ugly XP-era text in Firefox on W8 (D3D 10 1/1)?

Comment 35

Same here with Win 8 Consumer Preview 8250 64bit german.
"Glitches" on FF 11 and nightly 14.xxx!
I think it's between Nvidia and Win8. Just guessing.
IE 10 64bit runs fine. Other browser not tested yet.

Great, i'm not alone! ^^

What i had guess! In my psoting #35 i also guess it and now after some days using Win8 and playin' some actual games on Acer Aspire 6920G (Nvidia Grafics 9500m) i see minimum 50% less graficpower than on win7. Even so on Windows Media Center watching TV: Also here it's so called "Tearing" to see.

Posting a message to nvidia last days is w/o response. Maybe we should all write an email to nvidia!

Still happens in FF 13 Beta (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0, latest at time of writing).
This looks like an nvidia driver bug, so it looks like for now, we should blocklist hw accel on win8+nvidia.

Comment 44

5 years ago
I tested that H/W acceleration WORKS(no glitches, accelerated performance) when SLI is enabled, while the glitches are experienced on my machine with sli disabled.  This does strongly suggest that there is a driver issue, unless firefox behaves differently when it detects that sli is enabled.

For metro we are currently forcing D2D on all the time. If we're going to blacklist large sets of cards on Win8, we'll need to find a suitable work around for the metro browser.
We should get in contact with NVIDIA.

I can still see it, but I'm unable to find it via the search, too... and I also don't see where I could change the permissions. Gah.

I don't know if this is related or not, but I'm seeing some strange font anomalies in FF 13b6 with the Win8 RP x64. If you mouseover hyperlinks, sometimes the text looks like it goes bold (see new attachments). It reminds me of when direct2d support was added to FF...on some nvidia cards, the fonts looked horrible. Here's my gfx about:support.

Font anomalies (good)
The difference between your screenshots is that the "bad" one does not have proper subpixel antialiasing, only grayscale font smoothing, while the "good" one has subpixel (cleartype) rendering. I'd suggest filing a new bug about this, as it's a different problem than what's shown in the earlier images, with a specific testcase and detailed steps to reproduce if at all possible.

Still seeing issues with the release preview. But that may be because I'm running the 301.42 Win7 drivers as temporary solution for another problem, as I don't believe any problems occurred with the built-in 296.65 drivers.

Just installed Release Preview, and this issue seems to be fixed (I didn't even have to download the driver, it was pre-installed; is that normal?), but now I'm seeing the font-issue. Do we have a separate report for that yet?

The pre-installed driver is a generic one from Microsoft and not the full-featured one from Nvidia.

yeah, i noticed that when i tried to actually use the graphics card :D (i.e. play a game)
With the NVIDIA driver, the glitches are there again.
So the interesting thing to note is probably that the strange fonts can happen with the default driver too.

I was seeing the weird fonts issue on the Win 8 CP and im still seeing it with the RP.Tried CP drivers,generic drivers from Microsoft and win7 cat 12.4 drivers,but still see weird fonts when hovering links and stuff.Using laptop with mobility radeon hd5650.

BTW i noticed that in everyone's graphics stats post from about:support the "ClearType Parameters" field says "ClearType parameters not found",which is not the case in win 7.Maybe that is the cause for the weird fonts?

I don't think so. I saw previously this message in my profile on Win 7. After running the ClearType Text Tuner in Win 7 to set ClearType parameters (see http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Make-text-easier-to-read-using-ClearType ) Firefox was able to display ClearType values.
It is surely the same procedure on Win 8.

I think I have seen the font issue in LibreOffice once (also win8rp, of course), so it might not even be a Firefox issue.

The GFX glitches were NVIDIA only, the fonts probably too.

Font in Firefox seems rendered in two steps,
1. Step 1 - while site is loading - font is rendered
2. Step 2 - at the end of loading - font is re-rendered a little differently

I also seen this while typing in Firefox - font sometimes flashes skinny then goes back to being more full normal looking.

So for some reason Firefox re-renders the font - I cannot fathom this being good for performance.

IE10 works fine.

This isn't a gfx problem then, sounds like a responsiveness problem. Would you mind filing a bug on this with details on what you see and your hardware setup?

We don't currently have any of the cards mentioned - we would have to source one in order to test this.

I found this bug is resolved on Firefox 16.

Any luck in sourcing the hardware yet?
I did some testing under Windows 8 Pro 64-bit:
 * NVidia GeForce 8600GT with 306.97 driver
 * AMD Radeon HD6450 with Catalyst 12.11 driver

gfx.font_rendering.cleartype.always_use_for_content => false
gfx.font_rendering.directwrite.enabled => false
gfx.font_rendering.graphite.enabled => false
gfx.direct2d.disabled => false
> none of the described issues were reproducible

gfx.font_rendering.cleartype.always_use_for_content => true
gfx.font_rendering.directwrite.enabled => true
gfx.font_rendering.graphite.enabled => true
gfx.direct2d.disabled => true
> none of the described issues were reproducible

I tested Firefox 17.0b4 and Firefox 7.0. Unfortunately I was not able to reproduce any of these issues. Granted this is not the exact same hardware/software reported in comment 113 and comment 114 but I think it's a close approximation.  Based on this and the wide array of reported cards on this bug, I'm not confident sourcing the exact configuration in comment 114 will be a valuable use of time and money.

Dropping qawanted from this bug for the time being. I'm not sure what more we can do.

Have this problem too Windows8 x64, ATI 7970 (not overclocked from factory or otherwise), catalyst driver 12.10 (10/22/2012). Issue seems specific to Firefox and youtube videos. Firefox version 17.0.1

Bogdan, how often do you see this issue?

What is the result with the following prefs:
gfx.font_rendering.cleartype.always_use_for_content => false
gfx.font_rendering.directwrite.enabled => false
gfx.font_rendering.graphite.enabled => false
gfx.direct2d.disabled => false

What is the result with the following prefs:
gfx.font_rendering.cleartype.always_use_for_content => true
gfx.font_rendering.directwrite.enabled => true
gfx.font_rendering.graphite.enabled => true
gfx.direct2d.disabled => true

Could you try previous Firefox releases to see if it reproduces earlier? This first appeared in Firefox 7 based on comment 0. If this is a regression we'd need to find the exact version where this started.

Your help here would be greatly appreciated because we've been unable to reproduce this in QA.

Incidence is very low ...in nearly two months I have only seen it twice or three times ..it goes away if i minimize and restore, or parts of it if i move other windows over. Not very annoying as I said ...I am more bugged out by flash content always stealing focus and switching to another window or instance (like alt-tab except I am not pressing anything just open in a new tab or window, which switches to another instance at random or plays in the background)...but that is another topic... 
To the issue at hand, I am not sure I can reproduce it, but will try with those settings over the weekend.

If I were to suspect something I would blame a conflict in accessing resources between playing a video in KMP or PotPlayer (VMR9HQ render) and having opened a Firefox window with a Youtube video while switching/pausing between the two ...therefore a driver issue to be solved by ATI in the way it addresses windows 8 and its new DWM or even WDDM 1.2 (or whatever implementation W8 has).

This driver is really out of date. Can you please update to the current 310.90 driver and see if your issues reproduce?

Just wondering ist there any update regarding this issue?

I am using Firefox v21.0 and have a Radeon HD 7870 and also experience GFX glitches if hardware acceleration or more precise gfx.direct2d.disabled is false (if I set this to true I can keep hardware acceleration itself and the glitches are gone)

I am mostly experiencing it when scrolling, especially when opening the history (order by last visited page) and it effects the scrollbar and the text that is scrolled.

Forgot to mention: I am using Catalyst v13.4
