Not sure why this started happening, but it started today. I think I am using the word correctly, but any type of Context Menu that I pull up while in Chrome has been going invisible. Almost like a video glitch that semi-reappears when you move your mouse over it. It happens under favorite folders, extension options, or just right clicking on the webpage. Not knowing lingo well enough to search, I could not find anything in bug reports an what not.

Am I the only one getting this, it this due to the latest update, or is it possibly nothing to do with Chrome at all?

It happens with Chrome extension Context Menus too. – Weehooey Oct 21 '15 at 1:57

I just fixed this on my Chrome browser.

  1. Go into Chrome settings.
  2. Click Show Advanced Settings.
  3. Scroll down to the System section.
  4. UNCHECK Use hardware acceleration when available.
  5. Restart Chrome.

To access settings, go to chrome://settings

New info Jan 28: Another fix: Google Chrome Developers have identified this bug -- which primarily affects people with dual-monitors. They have an initial "fix" for the bug in the new developer-oriented "Canary" browser for those who want to install that. Presumably a normal Chrome fix will be released soon.

Still a problem for me today with Chrome 44.0.2403.157 (64-bit), dual monitors. Turning of hardware acceleration did the trick, thanks. – Lambart Aug 28 '15 at 4:18
Still a problem with Chrome 46.0.2490.71 m (64-bit) and dual monitors. Turning off hardware acceleration did it for me too. – Weehooey Oct 21 '15 at 1:54

I updated to the latest dev version and this fixed it for me.
