Hello, I'm using FF 68.12.00 ESR (Linux x64). Any page at addons.mozilla.org looks like the attached image. No visible text. Other pages look ok.

Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

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

Note that Firefox 68 is out of date and is no longer supported with updates.

Verify that you meet the System Requirements (GTK+ and GLib) for the current Firefox release.


Does the text appear if you try to select areas with text with the mouse ?

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the built-in Inspector with this element selected.

You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text. You can check in the Font tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.

Tried in Safe Mode, nothing has changed. Clearing cache & cookies didn't help either.

I didn't know that, FF 68 ESR set as default FF browser on Slackware 14.2. and was auto-updated time to time. Couldn't check sys.req. for ver. 68, due to both links redirect to the same place: sys.req. for FF 92.0.1. Selecting any text doesn't show it. On Rules tab the font-family set to "Inter, sans-serif". The Font tab shows: "Inter". Tried to change colour or font-family manually didn't help too.

And since FF 68 ESR is no longer supported I moved to the newest FF and not use built in Slackware feature to update FF. Thank you all.
