Google search terms are overlaid with any time/any file/any language.

Using FF, Google search terms are overlaid with any time/any file/any language. The result means that I cannot see the search term properly to edit or add to. This shows a screenshot of the problem. http://t.co/LAU0DLKW

I think the problem is a glitch in either the rendering engine in FF or some problem with Google. Can anyone help?

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling FF (both 11 and 12b3) and erasing all history but neither has worked.

Chosen solution

It's the GoogleEnhancer plugin. Disable that and the problem will stop.

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot 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).

After disabling all extensions and then turning them back on one at a time I also discovered the problem was Google Enhancer. Disabling it and deleting it worked perfectly.
