Dots appearing in navigation, on websites, etc

Description of the issue:

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Launch Brave
  2. Head to a website, i.e.
  3. Wait a couple of seconds and see white dots appearing everywhere.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
No white dots would appear ideally.

Reproduces how often:
Consistent behaviour after restarting brave.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 Pro
Version 1.2.41 Chromium: 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
Effect appears faster when brave doesn’t has focus or atleast mouse cursor is out side of the window (i.e. on a second screen)
Installed extension:

  • BetterTTV 7.2.73


Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration
