strange lines in Google Chromeclick to enlarge

I see vertical and horizontal lines in Google Chrome on some pages (probably on pages contain Flash). OS X 10.7.4, Chrome 19.0.1084.46

Chrome is fresh installed, any idea what is that?


It happens only on pages with Flash.

Follow the steps for Chrome version 19:

  1. Type chrome://flags in URL bar
  2. Locate the following entry "Composited render layer borders"
  3. Make sure it is set to "Enable"
  4. Restart your browser and then check!

Ha! I disabled that feature, thanks mate. Why that thing was enabled at freshly installed Chrome?... – Wojciech Bednarski Jun 6 '12 at 21:26

It seems that you are running a web designer extension.

If that is the case, go to Chrome preferences and disable the extensions.
