Add-on windows being transparent and unable to interact with

I cannot use any of my installed extensions because their windows are transparent, I've tried everything, since disabling my ad-blocker to testing each extension separately, it does not work, it seems this started after the latest update.

The little panels that drop down from the address bar don't have a solid background color? That's very strange.

Does it affect other toolbar drop-down panels such as site information (left end of address bar), new bookmark, etc.?

Does it make any difference if you switch themes (for example, if you use Default, try Light or Dark): Built-in themes in Firefox - alternative to complete themes.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.

Well the problem occurs with the extensions, so disabling will not help solve the problem, as I need them to test if the problem still occurs, but I can say that the "Menu" button works fine on safe mode, differently from not safe mode where sometimes the menu turns transparent as well, just like the extension windows

It's not the little panels, it's the extension window, i.e when you click the ad-blocker icon it opens a drop down window, that window is transparent for some reason, when it shouldn't be.

Also changing themes does not affect the issue, it occurs on the default, dark and light themes.

On this new, fresh install of firefox it worked just fine, it must be something wrong with my apt installation then, how could I try to fix it? I'm using a Ubuntu based distro.
