    I posted this in the Mavericks forum but realized I am more interested in hearing from people with the late 2013 rMBP only

    My last two models have this issue in the Recovery mode version of Safari, so I am curious if this is a hardware issue or in Mavericks

    - Go into Recovery Mode (cmd+R when booting up)
    - Select Get Help Online
    - Does the Safari window search bar flicker or does the screen flicker anywhere else?
    - Open the Yahoo tab, do you see any odd graphical artifacts? Try scrolling up and down and see if anything odd happens

    Sorry for the duplicate topic, but I figured the question is better here as I can target people that use the same computer and not just everyone that uses Mavericks

    Mavericks issue. But why do you care about graphical glitches in recovery mode? :confused:

    Because with my original computer, the engineer asked me to go into Safari in recovery mode and I said I had this issue and he said it was not normal.

    But then my replacement has it too, so we maybe thought it was a software issue.

    The best way to figure it out is to ask others if they see this too, since I haven't heard anyone say anything,

    You saw it? Do you have a dGPU or just Iris?

    I have this issue on a Late 2013 Macbook Pro with the NVIDIA GPU, Mavericks pre-installed.

    I haven't tested it in recovery mode but this issue occurs for me in Safari-Only guest mode. I assume recovery and guest mode Safari are the same.

    I get the flashing address bar and scroll wheel whenever I move on the page.
