Hi all,

I've been having an issue with really ugly screen-tearing while watching Crunchyroll videos. I can't say I've seen it on Youtube or Twitch, probably because they don't use Flash.

I've seen some old threads where others had the same issue and usually had to resort to disabling Hardware Acceleration in Firefox. Some attempted to force V-Sync for Firefox via their graphics card settings but it didn't seem to change anything.

However, the following worked for me.
- I started a video in Crunchroll
- I went to the NVidia Control Panel
- I went to the Program Settings tab in 'Manage 3D settings'
- Via the 'Add' button, I found Mozilla Firefox - Plugin Container (plugin_container.exe)
- I forced V-Sync On, as well as enabled Tripple Buffering

On restarting my browser, the screen tearing seems to have gone.

Hope that also helps someone.
