unstable emails keep flashing
emails keep flashing this is unstable
Hi all – Thank you for using Outlook on the web, and for reporting this issue. Anyone that is still seeing this screen flickering can you provide a bit more details.
1) What exactly is flickering or flashing?
2) What Browser and Browser version are you using?
3) What OS is your computer.
Fixed in Firefox Developer:
Outlook in Firefox Developer 71.0b8, though it started several days ago and probably an earlier minor point revision. The whole frame refreshes continuously.
I used 'about:config' to set the accessibility.blockautorefresh to "true" and restarted Firefox. Same problem. Closed Outlook.live.com and retried and after the second time the constant refresh has stopped. I guess there was some cache which needed to be cleared before it took.
Mine goes one second on refreshing my emails then to the actual email page, just back and forth. I usually leave outlook open. I can get it to stop if I reboot Outlook. I am running Google Chrome and Windows 10. Please make it stop.
Confirmed, outlook keeps flashing / refreshing the page or something especially after checking the junk box. I have tried ALL browsers Edge, Edge Dev Beta, FireFox, Chrome, etc etc same problem.
Its on your in.... fix it MS!

This problem makes outlook virtually unusable on my computer. On the other hand Gmail works fine. This is really annoying because I've been using outlook for years, and it will be a real pain to change over to Gmail.
Using OSX Mojave and Firefox the new Outlook for web flickers repeatedly on the webpage. Only restarting the computer seems to resolve it temporarily. Same thing happens with the desktop app, only the entire monitor flickers. Hope there is a solution soon.
Screen flashes every 5 seconds, like as it was refreshing.
Thank you for working towards improving office 365. I have tried the new interface and i love everything except the part where my background flickers. It is distracting so i often just turn back to the old interface.

The screen keeps flickering from time to time, which is somewhat annoying. When writing important, long messages, I get the feeling that I might lose my work.
What in heck, flashing email instead of opening. How clever. NOT!
Constantly redraws the iframe views in Firefox ESR 52.9.0 on Windows 10 Pro causing a flicker/flashing similar to a refresh.
I have the same problem - driving me crazy!
I'm using a very fixed browser to due my work, which is FrontMotion Firefox v38.4.0.
The new Outlook window flickers constantly when showing an email message, making it very hard to read anything. I can't actually start a new email.
I was able to reply to a message and also to add an attachment, but really, not being able to open a screen to write a new email makes it impossible to use.
As I type an email, its keeps rapidly disappearing and reappearing.
Blinking screen and delay with typing and seeing it. Unusable.
The new system seems to have lots of "glitches" every time I open an email it flickers, making it hard to read my emails
typing doesn't keep up with the user, inbox "flickers" and glitches constantly.
This flickering of new outlook emails is irritating, old style is BEST!!
Seems buggy or it may be our system can't handle it.
