How to Eliminate Screen Shake When Using Firefox Browser for Windows


Some Mozilla Firefox users have reported a problem with content in the window occasionally shaking vertically. This problem usually occurs when the user is loading a new website into the browser. This annoying problem might be fixed by one of several possible solutions.

  • Revert back to the original Firefox theme. If you have switched your theme from the default Firefox theme, try switching it back by selecting "Themes" from the Tools menu and then choosing "Firefox." This will restore the default theme.

  • Change your operating system theme. Whether you're using an individual theme you downloaded or a theme-changing program such as WindowBlinds or Style XP, a faulty theme can cause Firefox screen shake. Change your theme by opening the display properties from the Control Panel and choosing the "Themes" tab.

  • See if a toolbar is causing the problem. Other than themes, the most likely source of screen shake is a toolbar.

  • Go to the View menu and choose "Toolbars." Notice which toolbars have check marks next to them. Click the first checked toolbar to remove it from the browser.

  • Test Firefox to see if screen shake is still happening. If it is, uncheck the next toolbar.

  • Remove Firefox toolbars until screen shake no longer occurs. When you have figured out which toolbar was causing the problem, restore all the toolbars except the one causing the problem. The toolbars can be restored by clicking on them again.

Tips & Warnings

  • Contact the creator of the theme or toolbar to inform them of the problem.
  • If you have the eQuake Alert Firefox add-on, it could be causing the screen shake. An option of the add-on is to shake the browser window when an earthquake occurs. View the add-on options to change this setting.
