Advanced Lighting/Windlight Issues

Question

So... I'm having bit of an issue that I can't seem to understand exactly how to fix.. Um, I tend to take month(s) of a break on SecondLife from time to time and the last time I was playing SL which was a couple months ago my game was fine, no issues.. no problems.. it was perfect and then, Yesterday.. I decided to play again, Also I use the Firestorm client Launcher and when I opened it. It told me they had a new update so I was like "k fine" and updated firestorm, logged on and immediately noticed a huge issue that I've never experienced before in my total of 9 years on this game.. I tried researching on google to see if others experienced my situation, but I'm not even exactly sure what I'm experiencing so I probably wasn't even googling the correct problem of mine.. but yeah after hours of trying to figure out.. It seems as if the "Advanced Lighting" is the main issue, but along side it's also a Windlight's issue too.. 

so obviously Advanced Lighting clearly makes the game look 10000% way better with it turned on, but whenever I turned it off the problem went away.. but I don't want it off cause my game then looks like dog*****. basically my main issues are this -->

-When I enter regions with Advanced Lighting on, everything flashes and glitches out, buildings, trees, if I'm at a inworld store the clothes being shown off to purchase will flash and glitch off the walls, when turned off everything looks normal

-Whenever I change my Windlight to certain settings it fixes with advanced lighting turned on, but if I change my Windlight to a different one it messes up again, If I enter a region that has it's own Windlight it messes up again

-I know for a fact it has nothing to do with my mesh head/mesh body or any of the clothing/accessories/physics I have. I took everything off and my lighting is still messed up.

I cleared all my cache in the firestorm preferences, I done everything possible in hopes it would fix and nothing... 

also.. my graphic settings are always usually between High & Ultra, if I ever take pictures I usually put it onto Ultra.. I tried *****ing around with it to see if lowing my graphics would fix it and I learned that putting it in between Mid & High fixes my solution. the only problem is.. that graphic settings looks like dog***** to me and I rather run my game on a higher setting, it's also a flashbang killer if I played in that graphic setting https://imgur.com/a/4EFVaNj

here is a video I took of my unfortunate situation https://imgur.com/a/zOjMjFd to get a better view and understanding to what I'm dealing with

and some more images too.. https://imgur.com/a/mNA4FY4   https://imgur.com/a/BwmtWwK

so yeah.. I don't know if anyone has ever experienced my situation before or if it's even remotely possible to fix, but if anyone has any advice or knows how to fix this please Let Me Know! it would mean a lot to me!!

So you just installed the studio Driver instead of the gaming one?
