sometimes when it types if the auto fill address pops up its black and if i backspace the letters stay and if i type something the new letters overlap the old ones. I can open a new tab or get to my home website but i cant type anything without it messing up and i cant open any menus or dropdowns in the actual browser without it going black and reverting to the windows theme i have set.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

You need close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.
