    Random Rectangles scattered on some screens.


    Hey everyone, I am having a slight issue with what I am assuming is my video card. I have a Powercolor HD7870 Tahiti MYST Edition and on some screens I will get these random rectangles that show up. I have a few pictures to show what I am talking about.

    It almost always happens when I am on Twitter and most other websites dont have this issue. It is more annoying than anything else, it doesn't seem to affect anything but I figured that I would post here and hope that it isn't a big issue.

    Thanks.

    Printscreen was able to show it so it's not a severe issue.
    It's on the site, the browser so maybe acceleration is turned off.

    It can be due to scrolling and rendered stuff is badly put into place.
    Does refresh page work?

    Just make sure the graphics drivers are up to date and the browser as well.

    Refreshing will work temporarily, then the issue will come back. I checked twitter on google chrome and it doesnt have this issue so I think you are correct, it must be a firefox issue. Hardware acceleration was turned on, so I am going to turn it off and see what happens.
