duplicate of /questions/1433655 thread.

Hello! I've been encountering this issue lately where when I have multiple (i.e. 2) Firefox windows open, clicking into one window from the other places a large solid gray 'cover' over the original window. I'm including 2 screenshots - one with no gray (left window active) and one with the gray 'cover' (right window active).

Recently upgraded to a new laptop, Thinkpad X1 Carbon 11th gen. Running a Wayland-based WM. OpenGL is working fine everywhere except Firefox. Works fine in Chrome, Blender, glxgears, Steam games. Firefox 121 gives the following error:

My problem is this:

If I click on the open new tab button, and then I keep my cursor there, such that I get the little tooltip "Open a new tab (Ctrl+T)..." , Firefox will stop the address bar from updating---it won't show my keyboard inputs, not will it search, or do anything else. This will resolve itself after I move my cursor away from the open new tab button and the tooltip stops showing, even my inputs will appear there.

This quite annoying, especially when opening a tab to search for something quickly...

On my new tab page, I had 8 shortcut tiles configured with custom icons for quick access to those sites. Now all those icons are default white squares that don't do anything when clicked.

Also, if I try to edit one and recreate what it was previously, it appears to accept my input but then nothing happens when I click the shortcut. If I edit that shortcut again, the stuff I entered is gone.

So basically, the shortcut tile feature on the new tab page is non-functional for me. (This is on the current version of Firefox (97.0.1) for Windows 10 (version 2004, build 19041.1415).

When clicking on a link that does not include "www." in the URL, I am presented with an error SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN. But the certificate is good. the problem was the URL that did not include the "www."

This would be an easy fix! Just add "www." to the URL if it is missing. It could eliminate user confusion if they do not understand.

Firefox browser opens minimized - about half size. Support article suggests a refresh, tried that and it works for the first time the browser is opened after the refresh and then reverts to the same size.

Another suggestion was to delete the xulstore.json file as it may be corrupt. Done that several times. Each time, that solution works for the first time the browser is opened. Beginning with the second time, the behavior returns.

I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Same result. Works for the first time the browser is opened.

I have no extensions or plug-ins installed other then what exists from the default browser. I am running the current version of Firefox, Windows 11, fully updated system with plenty of RAM and disk space.

Thanks!

Greetings- I was using my browser (single window, three open tabs) and I checked task manager - Firefox has several concurrent processes running and I don't understand. I understand the sandbox and one process having several child processes, but this I believe is suspect.

I also noticed that in the "Security at a glance" window in Win11, my icons have changed - there's a weird white box on most of the security icons. I'm thinking I may be under some sort of virus/trojan, etc., yet I've ran antivirus even in prior to boot and got nothing

How to remove updates firefox 97.0.1 but don't know if this will fix as problem only exists on my GMAIL EMAIL ACCOUNTS. SEE SCREENSHOT. email inbox content not visible they are blank

All my emails are blank. They have s header and who they are from but no text just a blank screen. This is the same for sent and recieved messaged. Really do not know how to fix this

Having the same issue, All emails received on all the email accounts I have on this device (including work email), are blank.. In addition, mails from every other day are also blank.

Only shows sender information, subject, attachment.

If I try to RESPOND or REPLY to email, I can click the three dots below reply and finally see content. Otherwise screen is blank, except for header and subject!!!!

It may have happened upon UPDATES installed 18Feb2022 for firefox 97.0.1 and I woud like to remove but don't see how to anywhere.
