Firefox opens blank frames/dialogs

Posted

Hello,

I've a problem that sometimes the dialogs I open in Firefox are blank or the buttons are blank. It's quite hard to describe IMO, so I've made some screenshots: http://oi44.tinypic.com/rjfbkg.jpg

It gets fixed if I restart my browser, but it's quite annoying to do so every time. For example when I installed the add-on that gets troubleshooting information, there wasn't an install and cancel button, but they were blank. The install button also didn't work and I had to restart my browser.

Thanks in advance!

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

This can also be a font problem that the font tables in Firefox somehow get corrupted if it sometimes works and then stops working.

If it happens then you can do a font test to see if you can identify not working (corrupted) font(s).

Thanks for your quick reply! I've disabled hardware acceleration, so I hope it's fixed now. If it happens again, I'll do a font test.
