Comment 14 for bug 1652713

The window tearing could be a vsync issue - use raven and "disable
unredirect" - reboot and see if that fixes the tearing. Other than
that - its probably due to the software rendering of the elderly
graphics chip.

The card you have selected is an AMD model - its an older model around
2010 vintage - so much better than your current 13-15 year old model.
AMD itself does not support this older model - the opensource
community through its nouveau drivers does - but I don't myself have
any experience with AMD to say whether its a good or bad support.
