    Hi

    Ever since my upgrade to Mountain Lion Mail and Safari get glitching problems. It seems to have gone in Mail with the 10.8.2 update but it's still just as bad in safari

    I did a screen recording of the issue linked here http://tinypic.com/r/ztitx/6

    It's driving me nuts has anyone got a solution?

    Thanks

    Try a clean install of OS X ML, and all firmware/hardware updates for your particular MBP from Apple's support site.

    Hmmm This happened to my wifes 2010 13" MacBook Pro when I installed Lion. They ended up replacing the Motherboard for me.

    But, I haven't heard of the 2011 model having the same issues.

    I'm getting the same thing, I have an early 2011 15 inch macbook pro. I did a clean install the other day hoping it would fix the issue, but no dice. I think it's actually a javascript issue, it seems to only happen on javascript heavy sites like facebook and anything that scrolls. I do a lot of gaming on my macbook (Civ 5, CS:GO, Far Cry 3) with no graphical degradation there. In fact my temps and framerate have improved significantly since the clean install. Hang tight, I think it's just a 10.8.2 issue.

    10.8.0, 10.8.1 and 10.8.2 fingers crossed 10.8.3 fixes it! I gave them the benefit of the doubt thinking it would be fixed in 10.8.2 guess I just need to hang on.
