Hello more advanced users, I have always used firefox however I have never faced an issue like this, it might sound weird to you all but all of sudden, literally all of sudden without me doing anything the Firefox ENTIRE window become fully transparent like you can see in the following pic: http://i.imgur.com/lFk0l1f.jpg

I have already started firefox in safe mode, reinstalled, deleted the entire users folder and started over again and NOTHING simply NOTHING stops this fully transparency, the only temporary fix I found was installing an addon called GlassMyFirefox that was supposed to add transparency to it but then made the opposite finally giving me the normal look to firefox (however every time I reboot the system the full transparency returns even with the addon so I am forced to Reinstall it so it kills the transparency again)

I have ran out of ideas even a full reinstall deleting everything (used Iobit unistaller and cleaned roaming folder) couldn't stop my firefox from going full transparent... I wonder if this issue has ever occured before and if anyone could happen to know how to fix it because firefox is unusable with that level of transparency and like I said I only use firefox no chrome or Edge or anyother browser therefore I need a fix hehe

Chosen solution

Oh this can be deleted I fixed the issue by restoring my system to before the issue and my firefox got back to normal, this is really weird though

as you can see the difference was huge:

I still wonder if anyone has ever faced this weird full transparency issue and why did it happen so I can avoid it haha and if anyone ever has the issue at least i have the fix for it which was restoring system to a previous date for the happening.

cheers
