Hi Everybody,

I just had a strange thing starting to happen yesterday. Now when i type an adress in the address bar , after i press the second character the text disappears so i dont see what i am typing. If i continue text starts showing but only 'cut in half' and after the 13th character is typed then all shows again.

I reinstalled the latest version 40.0.2 and still the same problem however when i start firefox in safe mode.... it all works fine.

This only happens with Firefox and in the address bar... all the rest seems to be working fine

any idea of what can be causing the issue and how can i fix it?

Many thanks in advance

When i type a web address or search into the address/search bar it's glitchy. Hard to explain but you can only see bits of the letters you type. I've attached a screenshot to show what I'm talking about, I typed in www.skysports.com and you can only see the bottom of the letters 'y' and 'p'. I tried resetting Firefox and also deleted all of the add-ons and this still hasn't fixed the problem.

And help would be appreciated.

After 40.0.2 update, typing in web address obscured w/ partial spacial blocks

Typing characters of a web address produces blocked visibility of what is being typed with an individual blocking per letter--the more letters typed the more the blocking looks like a deteriorated etch-a-sketch block that changes size/form that is reduced. Once all characters of the web address are typed, the characters become visible/legible. Strange problem! Anyone know what it is or how to fix it?

When I type "www" in to the URL bar it doesn't show the letters I typed, It suggests favorites etc but I can't see what I typed. When I enter "www.google.ca" I see nothing at first, then a few little marks. When I hit "enter" the whole address appears.

When I go back to version 39, the issue is not there.

Hello guys.

I wanted to chat with somebody about this but I cannot find anymore the way to do that. So I write. Since the last update, Firefox 40 for Desktop, when I write something on the address bar NOTHING is visualized. There is some kind of white or very light blue square above the text and I do not see what I write! I can see the suggestions below (the drop menu which opens below, with all the list of possible websites which may correspond, which I have visited in the past), but NOTHING on the address bar. It is quite annoying. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Same story.

What should I do?

Thanks :)
