Browser issue Text becomes pixelated in element box when scrolled


Well-known member
In any element box, for example the Inbox or Options page, when I scroll the element the text becomes pixelated and difficult to read. After a I stop scrolling and wait a few seconds the text renders and becomes normal.

I have only noticed this on XenForo forum software and I can reproduce the problem here and on dozens of other forums.

I use Firefox on OS X Yosemite. Anyone else have this issue?

This would really be down to the internal rendering of the browser, especially if it fixes itself after a second. This isn't something we have any control over.

It could actually theoretically indicate a graphics card issue as well (depending if you've noticed other rendering oddities).

I was running Firefox 36.0 for OS X. If I enable full screen or the sidebar the issue would occur. I tried doing a complete reinstall of Firefox 36.0 but it did not help. I ended up uninstalling Firefox 36.0 and installing 32.0 and now the problem doesn't occur.

If I disable the sidebar in Firefox as well as use Full Screen mode the problem goes away.
