I've seen the same thing. I have always put it down to the way the window manager is drawing the window. It seems to happen more often if the system goes to sleep with Firefox open.

Oddly, i have had less issues with Firefox tarballs downloaded from Mozilla than with distribution repo versions.

If it is a thing that Mozilla can do something about, this would need to be a bug report.

"seems to happen more often if the system goes to sleep with Firefox open." this could be true but know i tested it, it did not appear. But it only happens every 10th time if i open up the browser. i love firefox but it only happens to firefox no other browser hat this problem :/

v73 is out soon from Mozilla, couldn't say how fast Manjaro maintainers get the distro version out. The update may help.
