Take Screenshot results in offset area added to desired image

A few days ago, a weird problem arose with "Take Screenshot" function.

The resulting image includes area designated PLUS a border on the right edge AND on the bottom edge. Note: width of side border is wider than border on the bottom is tall. This is difficult to tell in a file image because it seem to be transparent and assumes the color of background. Confusing, I know, so I have included a composite image image of result of "Save Image As..." on top, and the "Take Screenshot" added to the bottom. Prior to a few days ago, the bottom image would not have the added borders and therefore the colored part of the image would be the same width as the "Save Image As..." and extend to bottom of the image.

Note: it doesn't matter whether I download to file or cut and paste the image. The same thing happens if I "Save Full Image". And, yes, I know I need to upgrade to latest version, but this issue needs investigation...

TIA, KBo

Chosen solution

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
