On Windows 10 Latest Update.

Firefox is all white and blank. I can guess where the interface is and I restart in safe mode with add-ons disabled. When in Safe Mode it appears as normal. I checked my add-ons and removed them but it didn't help.

I tried a complete uninstall of Firefox>restart of my computer>reinstall and no change.

Attached is a sample of how web pages display. These can either initially display this way or, as in this example, the page opened correctly, I stepped away for a few minutes and when I viewed the page again it looked like the example. I can have a page open and it is displaying correctly, then open a new tab and go to a different site and the text will look like the example.

I have cleared the cache, dumped all the cookies. Restarting the browser (I do this many times a day) will fix the current page but eventually another page will display like this.

I running version 84.0.2 64bit on a Mac Pro Mojave. I don't have this problem with other browsers like Chrome or Safari. I never see it on my Windows 10 system.

Hi. I could always see the thumbnails of the magazines on the webpage dowmmagaz.com where you can download them in PDF format. But I had to reload Windows as I got a new motherboard. Now suddenly I cannot see the thumbnails on this specific site anymore. What can I do about this? What settings prevent the thumbnails to load on this webpage homepage? I can see the magazines image as soon as I click on it. But cannot view the homepage images

Thanks

So the thing is,the entire page is flashing black,as you can see in the screenshot.And when it's black if i hit f11 or i change the tab and go right back ,it fixes but i can't see things like the home button in facebook for example.Or the chat in facebook(it is completely transparent, i can only see the text and can't see any emotes,it's frustrating.) I tried the following: -Reinstall Firefox. (same) -Switch to Chrome. (same) -Switch back to Firefox and reinstall my graphics drivers and updating flash player. (same) I have to admit though,before doing all that i was getting this on every website,scrolling down for 10 seconds and this happened.But now it's mostly happening on Facebook,not so much on other websites.But in particularly,facebook is impossible.I can't even watch a video without the entire screen turning black and only the video being shown. I'm really out of ideas,could need some help.

hello,

since today I notice that all text in firefox (56.0 mac-version) on certain sites appears only in question marks (in suqares). looks like that on sites like mozilla support (busy right now in safari) google.com, my banking site, tmobile, gmail and a lot other ones too. all those sites show totally normal in other brouwsers.

did the following troubleshoot 1) view > text encoding > unicode = OK 2) preferences Font & Color > advanced > checked 'allow pages to choose their own font' = OK

any other suggestions? (:

tried to enclose some screenshots (small jpg and png files) but the upload keeps spinning for ever... never mind.

thanks in advance for any help on the questionmark problem.

I have an old Toshiba satellite laptop that is running win 7 and FF 42.0. I have always had a problem with the text on certain web pages (including the text I'm typing right now) being so light that I can hardly read it. I can't include a screen shot because I don't seem to have Paint on this computer. Does anyone know how I could remedy this? Thank you.

Hi, can someone help with a fix for this please? When using firefox today on a win 8.1 laptop, I am only getting a 'text' framework on a page and none of the links work. I have looked at the 'view settings 'page style' is on 'basic' and 'encoding' is set to 'unicode. I have restarted both firefox and the machine to no avail. Clues; Pages which open as pdf do so correctly, and one page which isn't a https address-just www. displays as it originally did although it is a text only page. All was fine when I put the machine to sleep last night. Any help appreciated.TY.

Often, some link will throw a popup and suddenly my horizontal and vertical scrollbars are gone. I have to go into about:config and turn dom.disable_window_open_feature.scrollbars to false, then restart Firefox.

Is there a way to prevent the scrollbars from being changed.

OR

Is there an easier way to turn them back on? A link? An easy script. It's a pain right now that this happens.

Internet searches indicate this indicates a space when the web page is developed but is not intended to be displayed. Why am I now seeing this on most web pages I visit?
