[Linux] [Developer Edition] Browser transparent (content missing)

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!

Hello,

It is suspected that latest version of Firefox version 78.11.0esr (64-bit) is causing operathing systems to crash. I have not seen it on Windows platform as I am not using it. Platforms I am using are OSX and XUbuntu. The error occurs lingering on a site for a very long time. First it starts getting screen graphic errors like, some pixels are not being updated correctly. Then after a while screen starts to flicker, in a massive state, like the graphic processor is broken. In some cases with command key strokes one is able to kill Firefox, screen is back to normal and one can continue working. Facebook is the site that most commonly is causing error, but there are also other sites.

I have Firefox installed on an XUbuntu 20.04.2 LTS machine. preferences to "restore previous session" on startup. Intermittently, when I launch the browser, one of my windows has a very strange appearance (please note the general look of the window in the attached screenshot and ignore the "page cannot be displayed" message, as the screenshot was taken when I was not connected to the Internet.)

I have already tried reseting Firefox and that does not make the problem go away permanently; it always comes back eventually. (Note: I cleared cache before, and cookies after, taking the screenshot but before opening this support request. So the "troubleshooting information" attached reflects how it is after cookies are cleared.)

Wrong offset for the right-click menu → Right-click on link immediately opens link in new tab unless button is held (at least three years old bug)

Hi. There is this at least three years old GUI bug that is not yet fixed, I'm writing this post to show the temporary workaround and hopefully get more interest in the bug itself. This would be an urgent usability bug, but it's still here because probably not everyone can reproduce it.

Link to one of the bug reports: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1504021


> Description

Removing the title bar doesn't set an offset for the right-click menu → the right-click menu will appear slightly wrong positioned, with its first entry below the mouse cursor → the first entry of the menu will get a mouse-release event and will trigger.

The effect of this can be different depending on what you right-click:

  • right-click some empty area in a web-page: you will be taken back to the previous page (because the first menu entry does that)
  • right-click a link: you will open the link in a new tab (because the first menu entry does that)


> Steps

  • Have a non-maximized Firefox window.
  • Disable the title bar (through the "Customize..." option)
  • Right-click anywhere on a webpage: you will be taken to the previous page.


> Workaround

Enable user styles by setting toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true. Create "chrome" folder in your profile directory. Inside, create "userChrome.css", and write:

   #contentAreaContextMenu{ margin: 20px 0 0 20px }
