Since updating to Firefox 40.0 (in OS X 10.9.5) browser windows and the toolbar show strange black lines and squares when the window is resized. Websites are messed up with black backgrounds or disappear beneath a black layer. The toolbar often disappears too, except for the three Mac resize buttons. It renders Firefox completely unusable.

It’s similar to what is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/nl/questions/1071126 and the bug described here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1032769

None of the offered solutions or workarounds seems to help. Disabling all add-ons and extensions doesn’t help either. I only use the Default theme.

Solution To my own surprise the issue disappeared completely when I installed and started to use another theme (Simple White)…

So it seems that Firefox’s Default theme has a serious bug?

New Firefox user. Frequently I visit text only page- data strings are quite long. The default view for text only appears to be "Wrap Long Lines", which defeats the sorted information by line. Fortunately I found Page Style under View when I turned on Menu Bar. But when I revisit or refresh the page it defaults back to the word wrap, its getting old. Is there a way to change the default to "Basic page style"..or turn off word wrap, permanently. I looked under options but just havent seen a way to change this. Thanks

When I open Firefox a white box opens on the desktop behind the Firefox main window. How do I get rid of this? It's really annoying because I can't access anything behind it without having to quit firefox. Also when I click on Firefox in the dock, the main window doesn't open, the white box comes forward. I have a Macbook Pro with 10.11.4 operating system.

Why is there a yellow line on websites? This has been happening since Firefox 36, I noticed. Sometimes there is a yellow line on a random webpage, particularly web links. It turnes yellow when I click on it and then stays that way until I close the tab or window. Sometimes it will turn yellow, and then not let me click on the link! Please help. Thanks

I have a problem with the menu drop down. When I click on it, it is cover with black color, sometimes the whole drop down, sometime with pixelated borders. When the cursor moved to the black area, it disappears and the text show up. It happened some times ago but only on occasion. Started yesterday, I noticed that the black color occurs every time I click a menu drop down.

I tried the solutions from the following question, but it did not work.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1084611

It only happens when I use Mozilla, no issue with any other browsers. I have a Dell Inspiron 13 - 7000 series.

I just got assaulted by the new Quantum 57.0.4 it is BLINDING. I am shouting sorry as I can barely see. My eyes are smarting and tearing and I can hardly read the tabs, the contrast between the dark tab and the name of the tab in a sort of muted white or grey makes the print difficult to read -- and any red fades out (as is natural in the dark, it's physics). So the screen is extremely bright, like white light, and the tabs are extremely dark, the letters obscured, any red logos tend to be muted into the dark, and I have a sudden splitting headache. I was fine with the previous Firefox. I just checked Safari -- I'm fine. I think this is a health issue.

First off, thanks to everyone who pitches in to help resolve this headache. Sheesh!

Problem: The Header image and text do not display properly in Firefox: The content does displays properly in Chrome, Opera and Safari. By the way: I have read and attempted all the applicable troubleshooting suggestions Firefox has supplied without success.

Website: www.twoworlds.ca The page in question is www.twoworlds.ca/other-world.html

Note: I coded the site myself using largely a w3.css framework. Admittedly, the source code is messy. I'm still chimpin' around (experimenting) with things.

Incredibly, am unable to upload two 137 kb screen captures of the problem for visual reference - an endless spin wheel for 12-minutes. Wha..? In that case, please visit my site in Chrome and then Firefox to see the difference. the site again: www.twoworlds.ca/other-world.html

Thanks.

I run a forum that uses Invision Power Board as the forum software. In Firefox 35.1 and below, when replying to a thread or starting a new thread, text would be correctly displayed like this: -

http://i.imgur.com/woze0ip.jpg

In Firefox 36, once you hit the right hand edge of the box that you type your post into, rather than it automatically moving down to the next line, it just continues on to the right and a horizontal scrollbar appears, like this: -

http://i.imgur.com/xkVP5Ck.jpg

I have tried upgrading to the latest beta version of Firefox 37, but the problem remains. I have also tried restarting Firefox in safe mode, with all extensions disabled, but it's the same. As soon as I downgrade back to 35.1 again, it works fine.

Is this a bug in Firefox? Is there an advanced setting I can change somewhere so that this doesn't happen?

Thanks!

Operating system: OS X 10.9

Starting about four months ago, I began to see untitled and non-selectable windows spawning after my browser had been open for a while (i.e. after I visited a few sites). The number of these invisible windows grows over time, but are removed if I close the browser and start a new session. This has persisted through many new versions of Firefox.

I tried turning off all of the add-ons. Still happened.

I tried keeping track of what sites caused the problem. No correlation.

Today I uninstalled Firefox, using AppZapper -- which should have removed everything -- then did a new install. The only thing that I imported were bookmarks from the backup directory in my old Profile folder.

...and it's happening again. Here is a screen shot: http://imgur.com/ojcODd1

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a high DPI monitor, and I've set the Windows UI scaling factor to 125%. However, at 125% the web pages appears a bit too zoomed in (images and fonts too large) for me, so I set the default zoom level to 80% in the settings page. But apparently add-on popups (e.g. uBlock origin) doesn't use the default zoom level so they are comically large compared to web pages. I tried setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1, but then Firefox UI became too small. I wonder if I can set the zoom level for add-on popups to 80% without changing the size of the browser UI?
