My emails kept flashing as if they were refreshing which was really annoying.
We believe this issue has to do with running an older version of Firefox. Please update your browser and let us know if you still experience the issue!

Mine was doing the flashing where I couldn't even read mail. I deleted the address bar all the way back to where it says /mail/ and googled just that part...worked long enough for me to get to my mail. But have to do it each time.

Check the time and date of your machine. and keep update
I have the latest version of Firefox ( 70.0 64-bit ) and the constant reloading has been occurring for me over the last couple weeks. I can only get so far as to select a message, which opens in the window pane, then the page refreshes and I'm back to the Inbox. Quickly double clicking on a message to open it in a new window result in no content (blank) in that window/page.
This now seems resolved for me. Not sure if it was an Outlook.com update or a Firefox update.
permanent blinkings & resizing...
Just awfull, not usable & exhausting (may related with usage of an old FF, but no update is permitted there)
Same problem - disastrous; firefox user.
It should be stable
every time I scroll the page appears to be refreshing and flashing/reloading very frequently. Using Firefox ESR 45.7.0 currently. same thing happens on other computers. unsure of browser version on those comps.
this flashing/blinking is very annoying and happens every couple of seconds.
As I move the arrow (via Mouse) on each email in my inbox, it flashes on the view window.
it's HORRIBLE! Iti keeps blinking constantly, it's driving me crazy!

Dear Outlook Team,
I am having the same problem as well, my details as per below
Browser: Microsoft Edge 42.17134.1.0
Laptop: HP ProBook 430 G5
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8250U CPU @ 1.60GHz 1.80GHz
RAM: 16GB, 64bit Operating System
Hope that the information is good enough as this laptop model has been using for most of the employees where I working currently.
Just tested. firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit) blinks like a christmas tree.
Chrome 74.0.3729.131 works fine.
But we need to use firefox.

It kept glitching as I was trying to use it and look at it. It hurt my eyes. It also kept trying to reload, so I couldn't read older messages.

Confirmed on Seamonkey 2.49.3 Win7/64
Keeps twitching around when on Firefox. Entire interface blinks on and off.
I try the new outlook version, to write an email.
I was typing, then 2 seconds later the words appears on the screen.
When i add or remove recipient the screen the frame blink and the response time is very long.
it was too unconfortable.
Then i try to look my inbox, the mesage list was normally here but when the mouse pointer pass over messages every time the right frame was refereshing for nothing, and it takes a long time to show the same thing.
your feed back page also won't let me vote unless I give out my email for each vote! Seriously! Do you want feedback or not? Quit making it so hard to give it!
The webapge is super slow.
Also when I click on the Delete icon it doesn't immediately delete the email. I think it eventually deletes but a long time passes. Also Why delete button is all the way on the left and not in the email preview panel?
Finally the page keeps blinking when i click on the email, when i move the mouse around sometimes too. Very annoying :-( I'm using Firefox.

This new outlook it terrible. The screen keeps blinking white so I literally can't click anything! When I type it also keeps blinking white, this is so frustrating. . . Also the words I type don't keep up with my keyboard. -5 stars
behavior confirmed for Firefox ESR 52.4.0 (64-bit) / Windows 7 64-bit
