Ubuntu – Screen Tearing Ubuntu 18.04


So I have recently switched to Ubuntu 18.04. LTS and I'm getting a lot of screen tearing especially during video playback on e.g. YouTube. Could anybody help me fix this? Note that I'm completely new to Linux.

For Firefox do this:

  • Type "about:config" on the address bar.
  • Search for layers.acceleration.force-enabled (default is false).
  • Change it to true by double-clicking.
  • Save and restart Firefox.
