Firefox window turned full white, glitches or not responding.

With my new PC, Firefox is crashing very often. I’m finding myself in front of a not responding browser or just a fully white window. In some cases the web-page elements became full black or there are some graphical glitches (in text, images and videos). The solution was to minimize/maximize and wait for some time, change the focus to other app, move one tab to a new window or simply scroll up or down. This solutions sometimes work, but most of the time they doesn’t and I need to open task manager and end Firefox. I have the latest Firefox version (51.0.1) and latest graphic drivers.

Well … the the actual solution to this problem is quite simple. You just need to disable “Disable Hardware Acceleration“.

1. Go to “Menu” -> “Options

2. Go to “Advanced” and disable “Use hardware acceleration when available“.

And that’s all. Hope it helps!

How to format your USB flash/hard drive to be used for Windows and Mac? exFAT

Do you want to move data between Windows and Mac? Do you use an USB hard drive for this?

If yes, I am sure you wonder what is the best way to do it. If you format your drive in FAT32, you will face all limitations of this old protocol (e.g. max file-size of 4GB) … if NTFS you will get all the Windows options available but will be read-only for Mac… if you format it in Mac OS Extended you will not be able to use it in Windows. The solution is a to make a compromise and use exFAT. Read More

How to add your mouse device to PC and Mac (e.g. Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse)

I recently bought a new Bluetooth mouse for my laptop… a Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse. It’s a very beautiful mouse with a very good quality. It has a magnetic battery cover for it’s two AAA batteries that are easily mounted on the same side. The mouse clicks are firm and the entire mouse gives you a nice feel while the scroll wheel has a good texture. The only think you might not like is the click noise, something that I personally like even if it’s quite loud.

This mouse is very easy to connect to your Windows or macOS device. Read More
