Is Icecat in the latest Trisquel Mini completely broken for anyone else? (Bugged menus and crap rendering)

I've been running Icecat on Trisquel Mini on a Librebooted Thinkpad X60. I've been hoping these issues would go away with updates, but they haven't. But the browser is basically unusable most of the time.

One is that right click menus are messed up about 90% of the time. They look like what is in my first screenshot, where I'm right clicking on an image file to try to save the image, it instead gives me a wrongly sized menu for having clicked on a link. The name thing will happen with misspelled words in text fields.

The second image shows what web pages look like about 87% of the time. Everything is pixelated and unreadable. Images too. It's mostly okay when the page first loads but once you start scrolling turns to this crap.

Is this happening to anyone else? What should I do?

Same problem here on Trisquel 8 and X60s with Tor browser and Abrowser. But not so frequently. For the first issue, about 7% of the time. For the second issue, about 3% of the time. After replaced Trisquel 8 with Mini, the phenomenons decreased significantly.

I haven't encountered this,

but I have encountered this in Abrowser, also on my X60. It's been a
while, but I think that installing "xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04" and
rebooting as described in this thread[1] fixed the issue for me.
