What i tried:
First the basics i tried every things on compositor (openGL3.1,openGL2.0,xrender)
In all options , with openGL3.1 and openGL2.0 i can’t record screen (freeze screen with tearing) but with xrender i can without problems but no fix for problem above .

change firefox configurations i know its not browser problem because screen tearing on chromium but i was try to find any way

Search for layers.acceleration.force-enabled
Change it to true
Save and restart Firefox.

this making Worse so i just back to false

Create a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf and paste the following code as administrator:

Section “Device”
Identifier “Intel Graphics”
Driver “intel”
Option “TearFree” “true”

another i tried:

Section “Device”
Identifier “Intel Graphics”
Driver “intel”
Option “AccelMethod” “uxa”

also i tried:

Section “Device”
Identifier “Intel Graphics”
Driver “intel”
Option “AccelMethod” “uxa”
Option “TearFree” “true”

firefox performance :

unable/able “use recommended performance”
unable/able “use hardware acceleration when available”

I hope any one have any why to slove screen tearing,because ilove linux ilove manjaro ididn’t want back windows for this type of problems.
Thanks to all

In system settings, on the compositor screen try to set Sync-V to total refreshes (and keep the tearfree option in the xorg configuration).

I read this in one of topics in this form (or old maybe ) and i tried ,nothing change.
i try what i mentioned on every posable way.
Now i use wayland ,better not full fixed and its slow. it doesn’t like a solution.
sorry for my english .

note : i use wayland only when i want watch video because its slow , and tear in scrolling and some in video watch still (but less).

I’m sorry, but besides these suggestions, I dont’ have any more ideas.
