I'm never convinced that the settings on a new machine are perfect but i
agree it is a good idea to stick with them until there is convincing enough
reason to try something else. Since there was no barrage of people
applauding that part of my idea it's not exactly convincing enough!! The
memory part sounds plausible though and is fairly easy to change and get
back to approximately default if it doesn't seem to do anything.
That hardware acceleration sounds exactly perfect! Well found! I hope
Firefox has something similar because that's where i get the same sort of
issue on this machine.

It sounds a bit like rendering issues so maybe the drivers for the
graphics-'card' are not quite right. I'm very much not sure about any

I believe I did ask the same question in the past related to an
installation on a Win XP machine:
moving through documents (Writer) in LibreOffice while editing
(constantly!) sort of blurrs/freezes the screen.
That means, characters/lines/text sections "disappear", look like
smeared ink or are displayer overlapping.
The "problem" is solved, by switching to another Writer document and

For now, that seems to improve things ...
Graphics card, its driver etc. are things that have been put there by
the manufacturer 2 weeks ago and I did not touch those.
Here too I would like to think, that THEY know a lot better than I do ...
