Incorrect.

As mentioned before, the internals of calibre have been updated. QT WebKit has been replaced by QT WebEngine for example. And that's the part of calibre that drives your display. 3.48 was the last version before the changeover so you are still using QT WebKit with a generous number of workarounds for it's bugs.

The problem may be fixed with a new video card/driver combo. OTOH, if you are happy with 3.48, you might want to wait until you upgrade your system before switching over.
