Hi :)
Just a quick google search gave me a couple results to try out and a forum
to post questions in.

But i've not tried them yet and my machine is behaving remarkably well
today anyway so the result might not be immediately obvious.
Thanks and regards from
Tom :)

Hi Tom,

I've never noticed it with Firefox on linux, but I'll keep an eye on it.

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
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.

Tom :)

I'll keep an eye on them to see if such behavior is consistent with low

Maybe increase the memory settings in LibreOffice?  The defaults


extremely low and on such a high-spec machine you can whack them


Tools - Options - Memory

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


that though!

Good night = morning from Japan
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
That's fine, but still rather stupid and happens ONLY with Writer
yet noticed in Calc).

Computer: just bought a new one, running Windows 8.1 (= a


8 GB RAM, 120 GB SSD = OS + 1 TB HDD
and probably a whole lot of fancy high-tech stuff I not capable of

Thank you.
Just increasing the memory (from 50 MB to 200 MB for LO) did not

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
