    Screen tearing when watching videos and scrolling...

    Alright, guys, thank you all so much for the help. I learned a lot, but alas, it was all for naught. Unfortunately, after trying out 4.4, 4.2, and 4.0 that have the 4.15 kernel and even trying out 3.8 which had the 4.04 (if I remember right) kernel, it still had the screen-tearing. Every time I...

    I haven't actually "installed" anything, just been using the preview to see how my desktop handles it. I'll try disabling hardware acceleration, too.

    Yes, with Firefox. Every time I change layers.acceleration.force-enabled to "true" and try to restart Firefox, it does that weird freeze/crash. Is there any way get out of that frozen screen without having to reboot the whole desktop? Reading some articles and Reddit forums about screen...

    Ok, guys, I did the "Try Linux" option for 4.4, but screen tearing was still happening a lot when watching videos on YouTube and I didn't get very far because it kept crashing (see attached photo). Any idea what it's called when it does that?

    I got it! Lol. That was weird. I'll let you all know if it works right with my old-ass desktop, lol.

    Thank you for the info! I have no idea! Lol. Like, right as it's about to finish downloading it just says "Failed." It happened twice.

    Do you think Linux Lite 4.4 will work with the 304.137 Legacy Driver? I downloaded Ubuntu 18.04, unfortunately, it wasn't the OS I was looking for and have gotten used to.

    One more question: Do all versions of 18.04 (ex: 18.04.2, 18.04.4, 18.04.6) come with the kernel 4.15 or just the first 18.04? I can only find 18.04.6. http://releases.ubuntu.com/18.04/ If I need the very first 18.04, anyone know where I can download it?

    Thanks for the info! I'll look into doing that! Question, though: Is the 4.15 kernel on the 20.04.2 version? I currently have 20.04.3 with the 5.4 kernel installed.
