Browser glitching after few minutes of use (black boxes)

  • I used to have this problem when I was using Opera many months ago. I decided to get it again because I love the UI - it's the perfect blend of Chrome and Edge (the sleek interface of Edge with the functional prowess of Chrome). Now I remember why I got rid of it in the first place - after using the browser (doesn't matter which page I go to), it will randomly start glitching out and become unresponsive. What happens is black boxes start showing up and certain areas of the webpage will start shifting around by means of squares. To explain it better, imagine part of the page is in a small square, and that square appears randomly to a different location on the page. A bunch of these will start happening with black boxes showing up in other areas.

    I really want to get this figured out and fixed; I don't want to have to go back to using different browsers again. Any ideas?

  • Disable hardware acceleration and test it again. Did that fix it?

  • Disabled. Seems to be okay for now. I vaguely remember trying that last time and the problem persisted. I'll keep you updated on whether or not it happens again. Much obliged!
