Firefox - Remove slow and wave effect from high resolution monitors

I am using laptop (with no special graphics card, but only inbuilt) and extending it to external monitor. The external monitor is high contrast and supports upto 1920 x 1080 (full HD) resolution. When Mozilla Firefox is opened in this high definition Monitor, it becomes very slow and wavy.  The dragging effect is too much and discourages from using Firefox !! A solution to this is to "Disable Hardware Acceleration" within Firefox settings. To do this Firefox -> Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> General Remove the "tick"  from (Uncheck) "Use Hardware Acceleration when available" Firefox fix has been tested on Samsung SyncMaster BX2240,  Syncmaster 2443 monitors  Advanced Users about:config   -> layers.acceleration.disabled  -> change value to " true "
