Please re-read comment#1 where I explicit asked to not post everything of about:support.
It's useless in this case and makes the bug report harder to read....

back to the bug:
Please update your graphic card drivers. You are using an older version from 2011
In case that you still get it with the new drivers or if you can't update you can disable the hardware acceleration under options/advanced/general (restart required)

dude i have 2 graphics for power management 1;intel 3000 hd, 2;radeon hd 7470m  the if i update intel graphic hd then radeon give warning in and also of low and high performance not working

so i can't update driver until amd suppor not release

but then i got a little solution that when i use graphics switch and take firefox to low power saving graphics then it works but image page quality reduced

I have 2 cards in my laptop: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 + NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M
and I get driver updates from my laptop manufacturer (samsung)

>so please don't change firefox graphic module in firefox 18 use same graphic module

The graphic output and everything else is a continuous development and we will of course not stop with that. We would have released Firefox1 8years ago and never released a new version if we would follow your advise.

That this happens on your system is very likely a driver bug. It works for excample on my system without issues.

hey dude why u always going rude

i not saying like firefox can't update it self

i just request that do devlopment 4 new graphics but add patch which stay supports on older graphics

and of-course its only request

bye
>hey dude why u always going rude
sorry i don't want to sound rude but i want to tell you the truth.
That's different from the support that always smiles and tells you lies like "we will think about this".

The problem is as it seems a simple bug in your graphic card driver. You have a workaround if you disable the hardware acceleration in Firefox.

There is something that we could do: blacklist the graphic card driver but that is the same as if you manually disable the acceleration.
We implemented this remote blocklist possibility only because we found too many bugs in the drivers.
- https://wiki.mozilla.org/Blocklisting/Blocked_Graphics_Drivers

It doesn't matter what you change in Firefox, you will always expose new bugs in the users systems and there is not much that we can do.
