Firefox seems to be partially transparent, which makes my background to bleed over the Firefox windows. I have already reinstalled it, cleared cookies and data, refreshed firefox, made a new profile and even deleted all firefox files and cache in ~/.mozilla/firefox and /usr/lib/firefox/ & firefox-addons/.


And despite all of this it still does not seem to fix the transparency issue, apart form it all the browser works great only that visual bug annoys the experience. The errors seems to disappear if Firefox is launched in Troubleshoot Mode but launching without it brings back the issue.

NOTE: It can be fixed by installing a fresh copy of the system which is not convenient. Error happens in Firefox-92.0 in linux.

Today, when I opened Firefox web browser and go to a site(s), I get a different appearance to what I am used to and I don't like it. I have downloaded the latest version of Firefox (91.0) but this has not helped. I use Firefox on a Mac. Any suggestions on how to revert to the previous appearance would be appreciated.

Some solid colours on certain webpages do not appear whilst on Firefox. The background will show up instead of the colour the image should be. I have tried to delete the cookies and cache on Firefox as well as trying Firefox in troubleshoot mode to no avail. Whilst writing this question, I have also discovered that taking a screenshot of the issue shows how the image should look as opposed to what the screen shows. Attached are some images of the issues I am facing, two images are of what appears on the screen and one image is the screenshot from the webpage which is what should have been shown. Apologies for some of the photos, I had to take a photo of the screen with my phone to show the issue. I have also closed the browser multiple times and restarted my computer, any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Firefox updated to version 89 last night and since then I cannot properly view certain websites I use regularly such as BBC news and Vimeo (have uploaded pic to show). I have restarted computer, and turned off hardware acceleration and cleared cache and cookies - these don't help. If I start in safe mode it's all fine - I've disabled any extensions and themes and tried again but the problem is still there. All was fine before the update. Not sure what to do next.

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.

I have a high DPI monitor, and I've set the Windows UI scaling factor to 125%. However, at 125% the web pages appears a bit too zoomed in (images and fonts too large) for me, so I set the default zoom level to 80% in the settings page. But apparently add-on popups (e.g. uBlock origin) doesn't use the default zoom level so they are comically large compared to web pages. I tried setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1, but then Firefox UI became too small. I wonder if I can set the zoom level for add-on popups to 80% without changing the size of the browser UI?

Please, I would like to know why my web page is not only visible in firefox in other browsers if it does. Something I have seen is that the code is present but is not displayed. My page is www.sividev.com and I only see an error in the console that does not appear in other browsers Uncaught TypeError: this.scrollPosMouse is not a function

This page uses the non-standard "zoom" property. Consider using calc () in the relevant property values, or using "transform" together with "transform-origin: 0 0".

When I start firefox, it boots up, but won't display any content. I just get a white screen. I've noticed when mousing around that everything works - hovering over where the search bar should be changes my cursor, clicking a the top right corner closes firefox, hitting ctrl+T opens a new tab, etc. Starting in safe mode does nothing, I've uninstalled and reinstalled after deleting all system folders, restarted my machine, even searched 'mozilla' in my file explorer and deleted everything that popped up. I'm at my wits end trying to fix this, any help would be necessary. I'm on the latest version of firefox. I've attached some screenshots of what it looks like. (polar bear in a snowstorm)

See the second uploaded image for how Firefox shows the webpage, even when it's running in safe mode (all add-ons disabled). What's going on?

I also have Firefox Developer version installed on my Linux, and it doesn't have this problem. This problem is not just on this webpage but others as well.

FF 66 running on Fedora 29 KDE spin.

See the attached sceen shot. When I first open FF in maximized mode, the screen tears in the middle. Also, it displays a part of the screen that completely does not belong to Firefox (in the attached example, it is from the Thunderbird screen which is now background). The minimize/maximize/close buttons shown belong to Firefox, not Thunderbird.

If I resize FF using the buttons, then maximize again, it displays correctly.

For some reason, when I started my computer this morning the tabs were all bright blue. When I click on another window and change focus, it reverts to the light gray that it should be, however going back resumes the problem. Starting in safe mode does not help, and turning off hardware acceleration does not help. I have restarted both the browser and my computer, and the problem resumes. The only thing that seems to change it, is when I change it to certain themes like space, who completely change the color of it. The default, dark, and light themes all are affected by this bright blue tab bar.

I'm seeing a really weird issue - https://rs2018.raffworks.com/ - on Firefox PC only, after opening a couple of the items up, the scrollbar completely stops working. Sometimes one item, sometimes three or four. But then bang! the scrollbar just locks up completely and it's impossible to scroll the page.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? Firefox on macOS is fine.

Since upgrading to package firefox 61.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1, the pop-up menus are all invisible.

I can click the "hamburger" menu and nothing visibly happens. But then I can click in the area below it and the invisible menu item is activated. The same behavior happens for things like the Pocket button.

I've tried safe mode and refreshing Firefox. The behavior stays the same in both cases. I'm lost as to what to do other than roll back to an older version.

Version 61.0.1 being used (64-bit). Win 7. Menu being cut in half. Can be reset by toggling menu on and off, but it comes back. Saw the reference to similar problem in 2017 question that was attributed to "Tab Groups" extension, but I do not have that ext. The only remotely related extension I have is Vertical Tabs. And although I love that extension, I actually had it disabled because I have been using Web Developer docked to the side for the last few days and the problem is still happening. So definitely not it.

Other than the super-duper Vertical Tabs, I have: Decentraleyes, Disconnect, Flag Fox, Font Finder, Google Search Link Fix, Nimbus, NoScript, Turn-off-the-lights, and U-Block Origin. Pretty basic add-ons. Theme is default, and no other ones loaded. (I'm very boring). Open264 and Widevine plugins only. Images attached.

As waiting for it to revert can take hours, it could take well over a week to test all of my extensions. So I figured I would check to see if anyone else had similar problems and figured something out.

It's not a huge deal. Like I said, you can get it back simply by turning the menu off and on. But it does revert and it gets annoying as I do use the menu quite a bit, and I usually end up clicking on the tab instead of the menu item. So I always have to get it to its normal size.

Anyone else having this problem?
