Can you attach a screenshot?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed the maximum file size (1 MB).


Make sure that you allow pages to choose their colors and that you haven't enabled High Contrast in the Accessibility settings.

yes, high contrast not enabled and X "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above" is correct.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
