Has anyone else been getting random black boxes flashing across Chrome browser in random places after the last update? If so, have you found a solution?

Well that's weird, you being on Safari and all. I've seen this before in the past but they usually roll out an update to fix it rather quickly 1dunno1

It will be even more interesting if it has affected other browsers .

Been having that problem with Chrome at work, when viewing here. Only thing I know to do is not use Chrome. I don't use it at home and have not had any problems.

Being computer illiterate I'm not much help in this area. The thread that ~mc~ was talking about did have some info. that might help. Someone mentioned something like it may be caused by under pop-ups, what ever that is. A suggestion was to check your adware settings.

I use ublock origins as an adblocker but the boxes were still there after uninstalling the plugin. They're random though, they don't happen all the time and, usually, restarting the browser seems to fix it but only temporarily
