Roll20 has ruined firefox Anonymous 15/07/22(Wed)23:15 No. 21890 ID: a13399

File 143759972759.jpg - (232.40KB , 1600x755 , 1430298895827.jpg )

So I dunno if you people know about Roll20 but my issue is that since I started to use the site FF has started to glitch out in a terrible manner blacking out chucks of the screen, blacking out completly, freezing on a single screen and not loading larger images.
Today it has become almost unbearable.

Wat do?

The solution is pretty obvious:

Stop using Roll20.

Try another web browser. If your problems keep occurring then the problems are system wide. If they don't then it's just something in Firefox, so try a new profile and see if the problems still occur:

Crazily enough some rendering/compositing functions in web browsers get offloaded to your GPU, so if your GPU is overheating (common in laptops & other space constrained systems, like microdesktops) it can cause graphic glitches. In FF you can disable GPU acceleration by unchecking the box in Options -> Advanced -> General (Use hardware acceleration when available). If the problems immediately stop your problems are GPU related.

One way to detect if your problems are caused by a hardware failure is to try a LiveCD/LiveUSB Linux environment. If your problems persist in this fresh OS environment then you know it's a hardware fault and not just something in your Windows installation.

Finally, it could always be a bug in the most recent version of FF or the last couple versions of FF, which haven't exactly been known for their compatibility (a wonderful bunch of idiots have taken over the ship at Mozilla and apparently are running a competition over who can hit the most icebergs). Try Firefox ESR 31.8 and see if the problems still occur on it. If they stop, then you may just want to stop using Firefox after 40 comes out, since Mozilla won't be releasing a 31.9 ESR to coincide with its release.

What other browse could I use? I don't sympathize with chrome.

Its rather easy to use, dosn't have much fuctionalities for games with unusual mechanics but I'm sure you won't e playing that.

Purely as a test it doesn't matter WHAT browser you use, whether Chrome, Safari, Opera, IE, PaleMoon, whatever.

The object isn't to switch to it, just figure out if it's purely a FF phenomenon or something infesting your entire system. The latter would be far more malware-ey than just a bugged FF profile.

Just used IE with Roll20 and some pages that always go glitchy plus FF running at the same time. IE ran smoothly all the time.

I'm going to update FF and if the problem persists I'll make a new profile.
