Hi +redlaber

Try this:

And check if the problem occurs in incognito mode.

Cleaning cache and history doesn`t helps.
In incognito mode the problem exists too.

Hi +redlaber

Create a new user profile and verify if the problem persists.

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker yevy7 6/28/12 6:15 AM
Yes, the problem persists in new user profile.

I have seen the same thing.  Although I am fairly certain it started happening on Chrome 19 just before I upgraded.  Perhaps some change to Google+ that causes problems in Chrome?

I also noticed problems viewing the "Create event" dialog when clicking things like "Event options" and the invite field.

So it will be fixed in future versions of Google Chrome?

Hi +redlaber 

I think so. If I have new, post here.

Same problem here, which only began a few days before the update was installed.
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker PrblmChild 7/1/12 1:42 PM
I have Ubuntu 11.10.  Update Manager downloaded Chrome updates twice in the past couple of weeks.  The problem you have described is occurring for me across multiple, unrelated sites and services.  No clearing or cleaning of anything has solved the problem.  Adobe Flash and Java have been re-installed.  No fix.  The problem did not exist for me prior to the last 2 updates (at least, not that I noticed, & it's very noticeable).  Re-install of Chrome did not help.  It appears to me to be a problem with the integration of Flash content with the browser.  I am not a Google+ user (for Paul Cullum), so I don't see a connection with specific services from any one site or provider.  It seems to be a rendering process issue.  The content is present, but is "in and out" in rendering.  Also, multiple pages and tabs seem to "interact" somehow in the rendering.  The good news is that it seems to be confined to Chrome.  The bad news is that it may not be confined to rendering.  If not, there may be a security issue, if the content becomes interactive across multiple sites.  A fix is imperative.  Any feedback from anyone?
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker PrblmChild 7/1/12 4:43 PM
ok.  just spoke with several people.  it's not limited to operating systems.  window's users are having the same problem.  it's the chrome itself.

IF SECURITY IS AN ISSUE, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND DISCONTINUING USE OF GOOGLE CHROME UNTIL THE MATTER IS RESOLVED.

as i said before, the rendering problem within chrome is across tabs and windows.  it raises serious questions about the data interaction between chrome and whatever sites are being accessed.  until i know for sure that the data exchange processes aren't corrupt, i question the security of chrome, especially since the problem may have been caused externally by a security breach.

good luck!

Hi

Same issue with Chrome 20.0.1132.47, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

BR,

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker Praveen Baratam 7/3/12 3:44 AM
Same here.

Latest Google Chrome Stable - Version 20.0.1132.47

Incorrect rendering while scrolling..

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker Sie_Deen 7/11/12 11:27 AM
Hi folks,

Thanks for your reports. If you are still seeing this issue on the latest version of Chrome Stable (version 20.0.1132.57), please continue to let me know about the following:
  • Your operating system
  • The webpage/URL where you are seeing this issue
  • Does the issue occur each time you visit the webpage? Or are there specific steps that will cause this issue to happen? 
  • Does the issue continue to occur after you restart Chrome (Wrench > Exit) and view the page in an Incognito window?
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker richadams 7/11/12 3:01 PM
I had the same problem, for me it was caused by the following plugin:

Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
Name:         Shockwave Flash
Description:  Shockwave Flash 11.3 r31
Version:      11.3.31.109
Type:         PPAPI (out-of-process)

As soon as I disabled it from about:plugins, there was no more flickering.

Try going to about:plugins and disabling plugins one by one to see if any of them are causing the issue.

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker yevy7 7/11/12 11:10 PM
Hi!
- Ubuntu 12.04
- For example:
     https://plus.google.com/u/0/
     http://forum.xda-developers.com/
- When the page is loaded there are no lags. It begin flickering after scroll.
- Yes. Restart, incognito mode, reinstall... all the same.

I have ATI Mobility GPU on my laptop where the problems are.
On my PC with nVidia there is no problems.

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker loconet 7/12/12 6:39 AM
- Linux (Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS with 20.0.1132.47)
- http://plus.google.com (on my main feed)
- It doesn't happen all the time. I've noticed this usually ocurrs if there is flash involved (see screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/Yy25n.png). On youtube.com a similar problem: http://i.imgur.com/oCPYn.jpg. Note: in addition to this, as many have reported all text boxes do not display what you're typing.
- Yes it happens even on Icognito as well.
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker Paul Cullum 7/12/12 6:52 AM
OS: Kubuntu 12.04
Chrome: 20.0.1132.57

It is pretty much guaranteed (for me) to happen on this page: https://plus.google.com/s/Events/events

When I am on that page and I scroll down the chat list gets corrupted.

This appears to be the issue described here:
http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=136054

When I run chrome with the --blacklist-accelerated-compositing option then the problem does not occur.

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker lrsjng 7/16/12 10:03 AM
Same problem here. Ubuntu 12.04 64.

I think it might be caused by the composite render layers in combination with AMD/ATI original drivers. Deinstalling the original driver worked for me but is not a solution, since it slows down the system significantly when using Unity.

What video cards do you use with which drivers?

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker lrsjng 7/16/12 10:39 AM
Installing the latest driver from AMD solved all issues for me http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker Beenjoob 7/16/12 8:04 PM
Sorry, late to the party, but still having the problem.
OS: Arch Linux very up to date (kernel 3.4.4, chrome 20.2.1132.57).
Graphics system: hd3000 integrated gpu (intel core i5)

Can trigger similar issue as other people in this thread reported (but not limited to google+) by going to chrome://bookmarks or chrome://history and quickly hovering around over the links. Problem starts as links not giving up their focus (highlight) when mouse pointer moves away, which they normally should (screnshot bookmarks_editor.png). Eventually propagates to other tabs. But I can reproduce very consistently with this trigger. (Another screen grab: chrome_choppy.png, where the rendering gets uber-distorted just by moving the mouse pointer fast around the links).


Tried clear cache, fresh reinstall (after deleting ~/.config/chrome) with no avail. disable plugins (flash, googletalk) doesn't work either. Also tried forcing/disabling gpu compositing and threaded compositing. No Luck!

~/.config/chrome was half a GB first problem was noticed, but looking at the discussion here and there, it looks like it is some graphics refresh related issue.

Detaching a tab from the window helps stop the problem within that tab. Other tabs on original window still show problem.

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker olicrock 7/17/12 7:14 AM
I am also getting this issue on Ubuntu 12.04 with lastest updates, Graphics VESA 110.
I have found that the problem is fairly random generally, though one sure fire way to reproduce is to create a div with 'overflow:auto' to enable scrolling, then add an iframe into that div underneath a load of text and I get the rendering issue Every time!
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker mgmarcum 7/17/12 6:29 PM
Ubuntu 12.04 (also on xubuntu 12.04)
It happens on multiple pages.  I notice it on youtube.com quite frequently
Seems pretty random
The issue occurs in incognito mode and after a restart.

It seems to me that this is definitely a graphics/driver issue.  I'm wondering if there's any gpu acceleration that can be turned off that might help here. This is so bad on my computer that I've had to go back to Fire Fox.  I've also noticed that on certain sites the text I type (like in a login box) doesn't show up.  I can type something into a form and hit enter and the text will submit, but the text never showed up before submitting.

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker olicrock 7/18/12 1:26 AM
yeah I also get the problem with text not appearing when filling in form fields, even though it is actually there. I am also using Firefox again.
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker IaCo 7/18/12 6:21 AM
Same here folks, here's my machine setup:

OS: Ubuntu 12.04 (fresh install)
Webpage: reader.google.com
Does the issue occur each time you visit the webpage? Or are there specific steps that will cause this issue to happen?
On the first page render, everything looks OK, but as soon as I scroll down the page is messed up.

Does the issue continue to occur after you restart Chrome (Wrench > Exit) and view the page in an Incognito window?
Happens on Incognito and after I restart, either way is broken

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker void92 7/18/12 10:38 PM
- Xubuntu 12.04 , Chrome 20.0.1132.57 .

- When I switch to the new tab new page is not rendered at all, page starts rendering after dragging the tab. The same problems with scrolling.
- Yes.
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker yevy7 9/27/12 1:29 AM
Is there any solution?
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker bibiaudiofil 9/29/12 11:20 PM
Firefox ?
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker bibiaudiofil 9/29/12 11:25 PM
Firefox ?   :)

Same problem here

Ubuntu 10.04 / Chrome  22.0.1229.79

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker yevy7 10/19/12 4:24 AM
The problem disappeared after Ubuntu update (to 12.10)
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker Pkunk 10/31/12 3:24 AM
I can confirm the same problem as @Beenjoob , scrolling pages with disquis and other html5 content like www.spicinemas.in does not work right with the default settings under chrome.

OS: Ubuntu Linux 10.04 lucid
kernel: 3.3.7-030307-generic-pae
Chrome: 22.0.1229.94
Graphics system: ATI hd3200
Radeon Driver: fglrx 8.97.2  (latest for my card)
Window Manager: xfwm4 version 4.6.1 (revision 29817) for Xfce 4.6.1

As @"Paul Cullum" suggested before , running chrome with --blacklist-accelerated-compositing  solved all problems i faced. After this webgl games work , but 3D CSS etc. are disabled -

chrome://gpu
Graphics Feature Status
Canvas: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
Compositing: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
3D CSS: Unavailable. Hardware acceleration unavailable
CSS Animation: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
WebGL: Hardware accelerated, but at reduced performance
WebGL multisampling: Hardware accelerated
Flash 3D: Hardware accelerated
Flash Stage3D: Unavailable. Hardware acceleration unavailable

undefined: Hardware accelerated

Before all the the features above except "Flash 3d" were hardware accelerated.

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker sbsbessa 11/13/12 4:44 AM
This still happens to me using:
Chrome Version 23.0.1271.64
Ubuntu 12.04 32bit
Website: facebook.com

It happens all the time, even after a restart and in Incognito mode.

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker opipa 11/13/12 9:42 AM
Confirm.

Chrome Version 23.0.1271.64
System: Ubuntu 12.10 64bit

Problem producing:
Visit pages like blogspot (link), memrise (link) and scroll (or click some buttons)
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker mikefreeman 11/15/12 9:58 PM
Happens here also. Linux Mint 13 (based on Ubuntu 12.04), ATI proprietary drivers (latest version from ATI web site), Chrome 23.0.1271.64. Also happens on Chromium.

Some pages are fine, others only segments of the page scrolls properly. Occasionally a small section of the page is placed in a completely wrong location. Sometimes I cannot see typed-in text (in forms, for example).

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker bibiaudiofil 11/16/12 9:56 AM
I switched back to Firefox. Works well :)
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker Allen Seelye 1/5/13 9:09 PM
Having the same problem here. Just started this evening, wasn't happening this morning.

Kubuntu 12.04
Chrome version 23.0.1271.97 (Official Build 171054)

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker Allen Seelye 1/5/13 9:16 PM
I've tried it with pepperflash v11.5.31.5, and adobe flash v10.3 d162 and v11.2 r202.

Very annoying.

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker Edward Takoch 1/14/13 10:30 PM
I'm getting this too though it normally only happens around the address bar area, however it sometimes happens on my main monitor on the side where i can go to my second monitor, and instead of being just black it will flicker to the wallpaper then back to chrome.  It happens when either loading a new page or changing between tabs
Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker Daniel Sell 1/18/13 9:33 AM
I'm experiencing this as well now - starting last week, I believe.

Ubuntu 12.10
Chrome Version 24.0.1312.52

Re: Pages renders with distortion and flicker olicrock 1/21/13 3:50 AM
I have a fix for this if anyone is still having issues- Simply remove the nvidia and fglrx divers on Ubuntu. This will fix the rendering issues with chrome and chromium and unless you are playing games and desperately need really good graphics drivers then you will never have any issues.
Obviously every computer is different, so you may want to backup files as a precaution, but a few other people in my office on Ubuntu 12 also had this issue and this fix worked for them also.

The steps I took:

sudo su
apt-get remove --purge nvidia*
apt-get remove --purge fglrx*
apt-get autoremove
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

After, reboot your machine and hay presto, all is fixed!
