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

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:

Note that such a chrome URL shows a problem with an installed extension (Firefox uses the chrome protocol to access built-in files and files used by extensions).

In this case a quick_start related extension is involved (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions).
