Unfortunately, windows XP is no longer supported by chromium. Can you send me some screenshots of the graphics issues on virtual Win 7 ?

So that is expected not to work. OK.

Sure.
1. Issues inside the app-window:
a. Flickering of various elements while moving the mouse over the apps window (no screenshot)
b. Highlighting while hovering mouse is all over the place sometimes:

2. Issues outside the apps window:

a. Opening a menu entry on the right side ("Tools"):

b. Opening properties window:

3. The MM5-window can not be moved or resized after these actions. Maximize/minimize works.

maybe vmware player works better, it's free and much easier to move images to other locations, I found that it's a major pain in virtualbox, this and for other reasons I switched to vmware years ago and never had issues with it. I tested MM5 in vmware win 7 client and win 10 host often and never saw an issue similar to that screenshots, issues at the moment is window sizes and locations at 144 DPI or more

3D-acceleration for the virtual machine set to disabled in Virtualbox: No issues
Not surprisingly (?) Chrome seems to produce similar problems that are solvable the same way.

Edit:
Newer guest additions offer an "experimental" 3D-driver for Windows 7/Vista "Aero".
That one seems to work.

Have to try out on win 10 yet...

The default (and probably your configuration) is: 3D-acceleration not enabled. -> no issues
The default 3D-acceleration enabled -> issues
"Experimental" 3D-acceleration "for Aero" enabled -> no issues (whether using "Aero" or not, i.e. classical designs, etc.)
So, nothing for you guys to worry about, I guess .. . Just good to know for some vboxusers.
