How the issue started: There is an issue where firefox sometimes freezes when copying an image from discord. I'm pretty sure this is on discord's end since I think it also happens with chrome and if an image does it it will always do it. Anyway, I froze firefox via that bug. I force quit it. When I reopened it, I had the issue described below. The issue persists after a normal quit and reopen and over a full computer reboot.

The issue: I'm not entirely sure how to describe it. If a box is supposed to be black or grey, it's max white. Every box, including bounding boxes around controls, even the fill bars on videos to make them fit the aspect ratio. If it's supposed to be a transparent completely bounding box, it's full opacity, if it has partial transparency, it has the same opacity it's supposed to but is white. This doesn't break black or grey pixels in images, nor does it break text, it only breaks boxes. My suspicion is that firefox's graphics driver has its fill function broken or something? I'm not sure but the issue makes firefox incredibly difficult to use.

Please help ASAP. This makes firefox incredibly difficult to use. I don't want to switch back to chrome, but I will if this is not resolved soon because of eye strain.

See attached images for screenshots of common sites to compare with how they are supposed to look.

I have most recent release of Firefox and also just updated MacOS to 11.5.2. After updates the histograms on the Wordpress blog stats page do not display. They display fine on Opera. I did clear cache — that didn't help. I quit Firefox and restarted — that didn't help. Firefox version for Mac version 91.0.1 (64-bit).

I assume this must be a Firefox bug, but am open to suggestions on how to fix the problem.

Also, when I click the checkbox for "Email me when someone answers the thread" it will not accept the check. Irritating.

Websites on my Firefox are not appearing correctly. I think this started when I was playing around with the Privacy and Security settings. I changed the settings back, but the issue persists. Sorry I cannot explain this issue more clearly... Please see images. The first shows an example of how websites are appearing with my Firefox now. The second, using Safari, is an example of how websites used to look - and how I want them to look again. Thank you! I miss my old Firefox.

Forever you've been apply to type anything into the Google search bar on the home screen, but not anymore.

Now whateveryou type automatically appear up in the tab line with https// infront of it , then of course it comes back with ...cannot find that web address !!

I'm not looking for a web address, i'm searching a subject matter..

This change is SO annoying I'm now seriously thinking of dumping my much loved Firefox for something which works better.

Why isn't there the 'option' to do search without it 'assuming' you're looking for a web address ?


So Annoying and frustrating, whoever dreamt this idea up....?

Hi Everybody,

Today after restarting my computer, none of the websites I've been viewing on Firefox are displaying properly. They're missing banners, and somehow the colors, fonts, links, etc. are messed up. I can open pages but none look like they should.

I've got no idea why this is happening or what to do about it. I've attached a screenshot of Yahoo Sports below.

Happy to provide other information if necessary!

Thanks a lot for the help!

Just downloaded 91.0 and the next time I started up Firefox all of the websites that I frequent...just about all of their design (fonts, colors, etc.) are GONE! What the heck? It's like all of their formatting is no longer recognized. I don't have time to figure out how to get it all back. Clickable links use to turn color; can't put check marks in boxes when doing surveys (I was doing a survey when I chose to just download the update, and I was able to check boxes at that time; now I can't even check the box below to indicate I want to be emailed when someone answers this question! ... @verizon.net, by the way, if you want to email me to know you've answered this question.) I have never experienced this in the past. Is there an easy answer to this? Anyone else experience this? I am on iMac Mojave 10.14.6.

All of the colors are gone from webpages in Firefox--I've attached two images of Outlook: One, largely in black-and-white, was taken on Firefox, and is how Firefox has looked for two days now; the other, the one that is colored properly, was taken on Google Chrome, and is how Outlook usually appears. Unread messages aren't showing up tinted blue on Firefox, either, but the words are showing up bolded, like they usually would.

All websites look like this. On websites that have an image background (i.e., Netflix), the image appears, but the links (Log In, Forgot Password, etc.) are all in white boxes. Also, some things just aren't showing up--for instance, at the bottom of this page, there's a box that says "Email me when someone answers this thread," and I can't see if I've checked it or not--the checkmark isn't showing up. The issue there isn't that I'm not clicking it--earlier, I uploaded a video to YouTube, and where it offers the options "Yes, this video is made for children," and "No, this video is not made for children," the checkmark didn't show up, but YouTube allowed me to post the video anyway, indicating that I had, in fact, checked the box.

I've tried restarting Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode, I've turned off all ad blockers and extensions, I've changed the theme, I've restarted Firefox, I've restarted my computer, and I've re-installed Firefox, and nothing is fixing the issue. The eye strain is so bad I can't use Firefox; I've been using Chrome.

Hi friends,

I don't know if there was an update or what but, suddenly, the Firefox browser is acting strangely. I notice it's showing the lines of each container on a page. (See screenshot.) When I open Twitter on Safari, those container lines are gone. But it's also affecting text color, turning it blue. (See screenshot.) When I open boingboing.net in Safari, the text is in black, as it should be.

It also seems to have slowed, though nothing has changed with my ISP or settings.

What happened? How to resolve?

I have the most recent version of Firefox - 91.0 - on a MacBook running BigSur, version 11.5.2.

Thanks in advance for your help.
