Firefox and thunderbird: invisible dropdown menus / missing overlay planes

Hi all, due to the occurring problem I cannot select topic to describe best my type of question:

Description of fault: Using Open Suse Leap current version 15.3 (KDE) with all patches installed (zypper dup: no action required) In either thunderbird and firefox application (but e.g. not in dolphin or k3b or gimp...) I have following problem: When pressing any entry in File ... View... bar I do not get a visible dropdown menu to chose from Firefox specific: When I try to use a bookmark folder in the bookmark bar there is no visible dropdown menu to chose from When I try to chose from a dropdown menu inside the content of a web site i will get no visible feedback at all.

BUT: when I want to chose a bookmark that should appear in a dropdown list and I move the mouse to that remembered position I see in the lower left corner the bookmark's address and I can chose it! The same happens with the dropdown menus from the the File.... View... Help line. I am able to chose a command once I remember where to point to.

So I guess all what is missing is the overlay plane where the menu contents reside.

This problem occurs in 95% of the time I use both applications, BUT there are 5% of the time where everything works like a charm. I have no idea what i do differently in that usage. Whenever Firefox works normal, also thunderbird does. Is it somehow a KDE releated problem?

How can I fix that problem? Any hints?

Thank you

Johannes

Using firefox version 102.3.0esr (64-bit) on openSUSE Leap. Since a couple of weeks the opening of external links by clicking a link from any application or when running firefox <url> is taking about 5 seconds when the browser is already open. This was always instantly and still is on same setup on laptop machine, both are updated to the most recent OS packages.

I've tried safe-mode, new profile, copied profile from the laptop, searched online for references but so far I can't pinpoint what the issue seems to be.

Any kind of information as to resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Got sick and tired of having to enter payment card info every time, so I decided to RTFM and follow instructions. I worked my way thru all the instructions on found on the forum pages, and was entering the information via about:config, and got to the popup where I was asked to confirm, and clicked the button, then clicked it harder, but nothing happened.

My guess is that my Firefox and/or my Leap15.3 installation has left some file permission read-only and Firefox is unable to save this bit of data, but I really don't want to run Firefox as root. I can say more, but I see there are more boxes to fill.

So, I included a screenshot of what I hope will be the useful part of my config file.

I have Firefox 50.1.0 on openSUSE 13.1 Linux (KDE desktop). This is the last update from openSUSE, but is now deprecated by some websites. I am reluctant to download a recent Firefox version without knowing in advance that it will work under SUSE 13.1. I am familiar with 13.1 and reluctant to update that, merely to run a new version of Firefox, as it will create complications with my multi-boot system, which includes a MSDOS 6 partition for legacy software (it took me ages to get GRUB configured to load that reliably and I'm not sure I could do it again).

Please advise what is the latest version of Firefox that will run under my elderly version of Linux and how to obtain and install it (I am not an expert Linux command line user). I am using Firefox 106.0.3 under Windows 7 to send this to you (multi-boot system), because I could not sign up with 50.1.0.
