I am using 64 bit version of Ubuntu 11.04, under Ubuntu Classic, using ATI proprietary driver 11.5. Firefox 6 was installed via a Firefox-stable channel update.

I had absolutely no issue with previous versions of Firefox, until I did an upgrade, and the entire window of Firefox stops rendering properly, as seen in screen cap below.

Basically besides the window control bar on top, everything else seems to be double rendered and one of the render is miss aligning the Y axis.

As I move my mouse around, every interactive objects gets rendered again and rendered incorrectly. Making Firefox largely unusable.

BTW, I have tried start firefox under safe mode using firefox -safe-mode The browser started without addons but rendering issue is still thre.

Am I the only one seeing this? And how do I fix it?

I have posted the same question over at askubuntu.com, and got no resolution, but I did post the image of the rendering issue. Link below: Image of the rendering issue

The Home, End, Page Up and Page Down keys no longer work correctly in Firefox since version 5.x (I'm fairly sure that 4.x was fine). This only seems to affect my XP laptop: versions 5 and up seem fine on two Win 7-64 machines I have access to.

As an example of this functionality, go to the sound on sound website. None of the above keys have any affect when pressed. However, if I hit Ctrl-End, the cursor(?!) jumps to the block of text at the foot of the page (copyright info etc). It is then locked there: i.e. hitting Page Up or Home will only jump the cursor to the start of this block of text, not to the head of the page. Hitting End from there will jump the cursor to the end of the current line.

I think that this issue is related to the appearance of this cursor (blinking pipe symbol) in areas of a webpage that are not text entry controls. For example, if I got to click the (mouse) cursor on a textbox/textarea but miss slightly, the text-edit cursor appears half in and half out of the box, but it doesn't allow text entry in that position. Randomly clicking the mouse on any web page will cause this pipe-style cursor to appear next to the nearest block of text, or half-in and half-out of the nearest textbox, etc.

Not a fatal flaw, I know, but it is pretty frustrating when trying to navigate long webpages/forums and the like.

Thanks, Si

Why does my new Firefox ( and the old for the last few days!) have NO toolbars, top or bottom - it just goes into my homepage, and there's no way out - I've had to use Windows Explorer to send you this!

When I open Firefox it runs to my homepage and that EILLS the screen - NO BARS at top or bottom of the screen. I can't get anywhere! I have to control-alt-delete out! If from my email I click into something that links to the Internet, the same thing happens - so it's Firefox at fault, not my homepage.

It's distracting... I don't have the best eyesight, and the whole URL isn't very readable when it's greyed out, especially to such a light grey. And the main domain sticks out in black like a sore thumb. I understand the purpose of it, I just wish there was an option to get rid of it, or to make the contrast less.

All pull-down menus, including bookmarks, cut&paste and main Firefox menu button, go invisible most of the time while active and using Firefox on my second monitor. It works normally on my primary monitor. The menus go invisible and while mousing over them to select an entry, they become visible for a fraction of a second and then go invisible again. Needless to say, this makes selecting the correct menu entry very difficult. This started happening after switching from Win XP to Win 7 with Firefox 5 and now still happens with 6. I also place Firefox on my second monitor at home (Win 7) without any problem (version 5).

Screenshot of the behavior

Before I upgraded to Firefox 6.0, the URL address was displayed in black text.

After upgrading, it is now displaying only the core domain name (e.g, mozilla.com) in black text, while any extra text (like, https://support. ) is grayed out.

It is very difficult to read this gray text on my monitor. I'd like to make it so that the entire address is displayed in black text, but I couldn't seem to find any kind of configuration setting under Options to change this.

Please let me know if I can modify the URL display to be all black again.
