    Hy,
    after updating Firefox to 59.0.1 x64 it shows strange behavior in terms of coloring. I already changed the default color templates and switched Parallels VSync on/off. Anybody experiences the same issue and has a solution for it? Please have a look at the attached screenshot. My Parallels version is 13.3.0. (The same firefox version works on Mac btw.)

    Best regards :)

    Hello MarkusA1, Let us ensure that Parallels Tools are properly installed. Please follow http://bit.ly/1jbXVsI to install Parallels Tools. If you see reinstall or update Parallels Tools then kindly reinstall it.

    Hy Aj,
    I reinstalled ParallelsTools, but it didn't help.

    This issue seems to be within the Mozilla Firefox itself. kindly try this steps and check if it helps ( change the dark color: 3-bar menu (or 'Tools') => Add-ons => Themes)
    and choose the light theme.

    Ok, I solved it. Was apparently a Firefox problem, as the hardware acceleration was active. Turn it off, restart Firefox and it's gone.

    Best regards :)
