Switching from tablet mode to desktop visual glitch (2in1 computer)
I recently purchased a 2in1 computer. I installed Firefox and everything runs smoothly when I'm in desktop mode. Everything works fine in tablet mode... However, if I switch back to desktop mode, I get this weird glitch (see the linked image). It's like I tried typing something in the address bar, except that I didn't.
There is no way to remove this search unless I completely close Firefox and then reopen it (which is kind of a pain to do). None of the links shown are clickable either. Seems like this is just purely a visual glitch.
Does anybody know how to fix and/or how to avoid this bug?
Firefox version: 65.0.1 (64-bit) OS: Windows 10 Home version 1809 Reproducibility: 100%

Screen switching issue is a O/S problem. And it can't correctly adjust to the switch is what I am reading. This is something reoccurring that I've heard of Windows 10 going from tablet mode to Desktop. So you might want to ask this of a Window Forum as well.
I'm surprised to hear that. This bug only affects Firefox. If I try the same maneuver with Chrome, Edge or even IE, the browser handles it perfectly fine.
However, if while doing it I have Firefox open in the background, I'll have to restart Firefox because the glitch will happen on the Firefox window (even if I never switched to it!)
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is 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 Safe Mode start window
