How to fix browser windows not rendering remotely via TeamViewer

Disabling the removal of local and remote wallpapers fixes the issue.

Update: This issue is resolved for me using TeamViewer 12 + Firefox Nightly and/or Google Chrome on Windows 10 build 14986+.

If browser windows such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or even BitTorrent Sync’s UI are completely whited out when viewing them remotely on Windows 8.1+, do this on both the host and client PCs:

  1. Open TeamViewer.
  2. Click Extras.
  3. Click Options.
  4. In the sidebar, click Remote Control.
  5. Under Display, uncheck Remove remote wallpaper.
  6. In the sidebar, click Meeting.
  7. Under Display, uncheck Remove own wallpaper.
  8. Click OK.

Browser windows should render normally now.
