Thread: Firefox freezes display

  1. #1

    Default Firefox freezes display

    Since the update to Firefox 57 it randomly freezes the display, when I scroll down a long page or watch some video.

    The display is stuck and displays what it was displaying before, but nothing happens, and I have to reboot the system to fix it. The console ttys still work. In a video the sound still works, and i can stop/continue that.

    $ sudo lspci -v

    if you are using plasma 5 you can try switching to uxa acceleration
    or simply disable hardware acceleration in Firefox
    the hamburger bar -> Options under Performance uncheck use reccomended performance settings then uncheck use hardware acceleration restart Firefox
