Vertical colored bars on left side of window?

Arch Linux, 64-bit Radeon HD 7750 w/ Mesa 10.6.4 Gnome 3.16.2 Firefox 40.0.2 (problem does not occur on FF 39.0.3) Any Firefox window has a colored vertical region (20-… (read more)

Arch Linux, 64-bit

Radeon HD 7750 w/ Mesa 10.6.4

Gnome 3.16.2

Firefox 40.0.2 (problem does not occur on FF 39.0.3)


Any Firefox window has a colored vertical region (20-or-so pixels wide) beginning just under the system title bar and extending down to the bottom of the FF window. The region begins as a single color(1) but then, as the viewport changes(2) this region is segmented into sub-regions of independently varying colors. Multiple windows maintain their own independent colored region.

If multiple firefox windows are opened, each has its own region. Context menus (e.g. right clicking anywhere in the FF window) also have such a region. Disabling all extensions, plugins, and themes has no effect.

(1) The colors I've observed are always fundamental (cyan, magenta, yellow, green, blue, red, gray). When the color is set or changed (described below) the color seems to be set at random - that is to say I cannot distinguish a pattern as to how

(2) Scrolling the viewport or invoking a browser modal/prompt/file dialog will cause the entire region to change to one other color. Certain (I can't nail down the rhyme or reason) block-level changes to a page will cause a sub-region to appear, horizontally aligned with said block. Page-wide changes "reset" these sub regions. Animations on the page causing color changes (such as the fading in of a modal overlay div or the slow sliding up of the Firefox address bar when entering fullscreen) will cause rapid color change during the period of animation/transition. Blurring the Firefox window or using the PrintScreen button will also reset the entire region back to one color so I'm unable to get a screengrab of varying subregions.


Is this a problem with Firefox? Where should I file a bug report? Mozilla? Gnome? X? Mesa?

Something that has always been a bother for me and maybe the solution is right under my nose. When I look for something in my history but I am not sure of the exact link, I often have to clink on several pages to find the exact one. The problem is every time I do the side bar autoscroll all the way back up which makes very bothersome to go back to the position I was before. Is it possible to deactivate this automatic scroll to the top of the sidebar (newest link in history) .

Thanks

Without any apparent input from any of the users on my PC, the font in my tab headings, URL field and bookmark toolbar have increased. I cannot find any options to make them smaller. I have changed the font for my main menu and page content but I am stuck with great big disproportionate fonts for tab headings, url field and bookmarks toolbar.

While loading it says I need a newer flash. When I click on the "click here link" it freezes. The Adobe site doesn't say Flash works with Windows 10 and none of the stuff on the Mozilla site mentions that there is a flash for windows 10. Is there a direct link to download a flash player from a reputable site that will work with Farmville on Windows 10 and not mess up anything else that uses flash?

When I click the pocket button to save a page to my pocket account, a little popup window opens - but it is empty. I guess it used to contain the option to add tags and a seperate "save" button. This is very annoying. Although the saving itself is working: When I click the button the page is saved - I can see it in my pocket reading list.

What solves this problem?

Dear Sir or Madam,

The newest version of Your browser is making some "problems" (though the more appropriate term would be "unwanted visual changes") with viewing some sites. It started highlighting some elements of different sites (on Facebook or internet forums) namely the hour and date of posts. It wasn't like that on the 39.0.x version - checked it on my older PC which don't have the newest update applied yet.

Examples are presented in added image (@edit - it seems that I cannot upload the image correctly - endless "Uploading "11.jpg"...". Here is the link: http://i.imgur.com/zaO91fq.jpg ).

Yours sincerely, Matt

I have read the thread about the blank screen in Windows 10 after awaking from sleep, but I am experiencing the problem even when the computer is always awake. This was an in-place upgrade from Windows 7 and it is the only problem that I have encountered. The system has an Ivy Bridge motherboard with a Core i7 4770K processor, 8 gb of ram. Video is a Radeon HD 7850. I am running the current version of Firefox and have the newest video driver. If I have Firefox open and walk away for a few minutes, I frequently come back to find the window blank. I can click on the upper right corner and close the window and everything is OK on restart of Firefox, at least until it goes blank again. Turning off hardware acceleration hasn't seemed to work for others.

I have and have reinstalled the latest versions of Firefox and Adobe Flash Player. The crashes are constant and are making it extremely difficult to use Firefox as my browser. Neither Adobe Flash Player nor Firefox seem to have a solution.

All of theses extensions were download from their respective websites. Should I be concerned about this?

using firefox 40.0, as stated above i start typing in a bookmark and get no type down suggestions or autocomplete options. Interesting things i have done, 1: restarted browser w/ all plugins disabled. then turned them back on. Also noticed that i seem to have to make a change to the new gooey clicky preferences interface, to make a change persistent between browser sessions. & before anyone parrots the defaults, yes i have went to preferences and said i want to use bookmarks (ala preferences privacy, when using location bar suggest). I even have christmas treed / applied a binary solution to the options,,,, use bookmarks, use bookmarks & history, use boookmarks & open tabs, etc etc, even up to and including use nothing). The only other caveat is i have imported old bookmarks, irregardless i can not type down old bookmarks or new ones, with the odd exception of it now typing down google.com!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wtaf btw google.com is not a bookmark???? i am really curious where this rabbit hole goes too. currently running lubuntu 14.02 lts 64bit, - i am using addons no script, ubuntu modification & places maintenance (incase my current problem was due to a corrupted sqlite database) yada yada , see information below for a complete picture
