[Solved]Opera screen flickering
I have an issue with Opera that doesn't seem to be that common, nor do I know how to troubleshoot it.
Whenever the mouse cursor goes over an active link on the page and the link in the lower left corner of the page shows up, the browser screen repositions itself by a few pixels. As soon as I move cursor over a link-free area, it resumes initial position.
As nowadays all pages are almost covered in links, this leads to a very upsetting flickering that can become quite bothersome for the eye.
Never had this issue with other browsers until now and can't seem to find help for it.
I've recently switched to Opera from Edge and this is a major bump in the switch process
Anyone has any idea why this happens ?
Using Opera on an Asus laptop, Windows 10, no extensions installed.
Thanks for the help!
Look like driver problems.
Thx for the input!
Reckon video card driver compatibility might be an issue ?
Coz the drivers are all good, recently installed Windows and all original and updated drivers.
To be honest, I have no idea how to interpret the opera://gpu/ thing or if it has anything to do with the screen flickering.
Anyone that has more knowledge and may help ? I'll paste below what seems to be of importance..

Disabling hardware acceleration makes any difference?
It did make a difference, indeed. I was so sure I've tried that, previously ...
Anyhow, thanks very much for your help! Appreciate it!
Have a beer on me!
