Dropdown Lists Incomplete - Even in Safe Mode

Posted

So on certain websites with long dropdown lists - the entire list is not displaying. I have attempted: removing firefox and all of the files associated with it, reinstalling from "full installer" (this was a solution in another thread), running in safe mode, creating a new profile, deleting my existing profile, etc. and nothing has solved the issue. Chrome has no problem with these dropdowns - everything shows up perfectly.

I am running Mac High Sierra, 10.13.3 - firefox 58.0.2 Problem seems to have only started since I updated to Quantum.

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Safe websites. Is the problem still there?

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Close and restart Firefox after modifying the setting to make the change effective.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.

Could you review this other thread about drop-downs behaving oddly on Mac in Firefox 57 (Quantum): Dropdown selects not showing all options and positioned oddly in version 57. Does any of that seem relevant to your configuration?
