Am I the only one having flickering issues in both Chrome, Firefox and Edge ?

Deleted user Aug 20, 2019


I create a page in Confluence Cloud.

I add 3 sections of 2 columns.


  • And when I add an picture it's flickering every where. It's hard to select or move the picture by drag and drop.
  • If I remove all pictures and just try to add a text with a link in one columns and it flickers again and it take 3 minutes clicking everywhere to finaly get the url selection popup...

I pay a confluence licence and it's not usable and slows me in my work. I have to deliver a word version now.

If anyone know a web browser that is supported by Atlassian, I'd be glad to use it

I finaly find out where the problem comes from.

The flickering was generated by a browser extension in all my browser:

- Kaspersky Password Manager 4.1.15

Disabling it make my Confluence user experience perfect!!!

That's great! Hopefully Kaspersky will issue a fix. If not, and you need a password manager, I would recommend LastPass. I've been using it for years, and the free version is now full of features that were previously only available in the paid version.

I am having a flickering issue with text and I definitely do not use Kaspersky on my Fedora 32

Hello guys. I'm gratefull to your pointing to Kaspersky extension. It really works. I've turned it off and it solved the problem.

Probably Kaspersky is not the only one extension that causes the problem. But in my case it does. 

I've made a report to Kaspersky support team and have a conversation about it with support guy. Hope they will fix it soon.

If you find another extension that causes the same problem - you can make a bug report to them too (don't be shine to make a good thing).

The Grammarly extension also causes this problem.

Have not had this experience in almost a year of using Confluence Cloud. This may be something worth discussing with your IT staff, as it could be related to an OS issue or a network connectivity issue.

Our experience is that Chrome provides the best experience with the Atlassian Cloud products, and the Microsoft browsers provide the worst.

I confirm you that we all experience this issue in my little company.

We subscribed the cloud plan this July, maybe we have been put on an experimental version without being told?

Almost all pop up button hard very hard to click like the page is constantly refreshing.

We have a 1000mbps internet connexion and admin rights on our machines. We use Kasperky as Anti-virus

I also saw a similar probleme being fixed by deactivating the cooperation editing but I dont have this option in the Cloud edition... 


Sorry to hear about your experience.

I would recommend you reach out directly to Atlassian Support: They may be able to provide some troubleshooting options.
