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.

Operating system: OS X 10.9

Starting about four months ago, I began to see untitled and non-selectable windows spawning after my browser had been open for a while (i.e. after I visited a few sites). The number of these invisible windows grows over time, but are removed if I close the browser and start a new session. This has persisted through many new versions of Firefox.

I tried turning off all of the add-ons. Still happened.

I tried keeping track of what sites caused the problem. No correlation.

Today I uninstalled Firefox, using AppZapper -- which should have removed everything -- then did a new install. The only thing that I imported were bookmarks from the backup directory in my old Profile folder.

...and it's happening again. Here is a screen shot: http://imgur.com/ojcODd1

Any help would be appreciated.

I finally got tired of Chrome tracking me all over the place, so I returned to Firefox. I'm using a PC with Windows 7.

However, since I started using Firefox again, periodically a blurred bluish screen overlays my browser. I can tell the browser's still in the background, and sometimes part of the page will flash clear and then vanish just as quickly. Waiting doesn't resolve the problem. Nothing consistently causes this, although I am usually in Facebook, but I have to close the browser, losing my tabs, and reopen the browser. Since I never know when it's going to happen or what triggers it, I can't figure out what's going on. I've seen other queries in the community support forum, but they aren't exactly what's happening to me. Flash is up-to-date, the browser's up-to-date, malware screen finds nothing.

I'm out of ideas, but I really, really, really don't want to go back to Chrome, so if any of you has any idea what's going on here and how to resolve it, I'd love to have your input. Thanks!

Since a recent update (to 55? - I'm now on 56.0b5), pages from NaturalNews.com are whited out down the middle. The page appears normally very briefly when it first loads, then the white-out superimposes. The pages show fine on Chrome.

This article: http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-08-15-censorship-alert-mozilla-planning-kill-shot-for-entire-independent-media-by-blocking-all-non-approved-news-in-the-firefox-browser.html - which of course I had to read on Chrome - suggests Mozilla is intending to decide what I should not be able to read on my favorite browser.

I've been using Mozilla since near the beginning - years before Firefox - and I feel deeply betrayed that a browser I have used continuously for decades and often championed is apparently doing something so despicable. I hope there is a good explanation.

I'm on a desktop PC running 64-bit Windows 10 Pro with latest updates. Firefox is 64-bit too.

Two days ago Firefox upgraded itself to 57 (Quantum). It worked fine, although without some add-ons that I depend on, and with a difficult-to-read color scheme. Tonight Windows updated itself and Firefox stopped working. The window minimized itself through a series of sequentially smaller windows until it was apparently just a few pixels wide and high. When I try to re-open Firefox I can OCASIONALLY get it to open a very small window and tried restoring it to its default state, but that didn't improve anything.

I'm running a Dell XPS 8700.

If you have any suggestions I'd like to hear them. I've been using Firefox for more than 10 years and I really like it, but this "upgrade" has been a fiasco for me. I'm currently using Edge, and I've downloaded Chrome which right now looks like my new browser.

I just got assaulted by the new Quantum 57.0.4 it is BLINDING. I am shouting sorry as I can barely see. My eyes are smarting and tearing and I can hardly read the tabs, the contrast between the dark tab and the name of the tab in a sort of muted white or grey makes the print difficult to read -- and any red fades out (as is natural in the dark, it's physics). So the screen is extremely bright, like white light, and the tabs are extremely dark, the letters obscured, any red logos tend to be muted into the dark, and I have a sudden splitting headache. I was fine with the previous Firefox. I just checked Safari -- I'm fine. I think this is a health issue.

Vertical colored bars on left side of window?

Arch Linux, 64-bit

Radeon HD 7750 w/ Mesa 10.6.4

Gnome 3.16.2

Firefox 40.0.2 (problem does not occur on FF 39.0.3)


Any Firefox window has a colored vertical region (20-or-so pixels wide) beginning just under the system title bar and extending down to the bottom of the FF window. The region begins as a single color(1) but then, as the viewport changes(2) this region is segmented into sub-regions of independently varying colors. Multiple windows maintain their own independent colored region.

If multiple firefox windows are opened, each has its own region. Context menus (e.g. right clicking anywhere in the FF window) also have such a region. Disabling all extensions, plugins, and themes has no effect.

(1) The colors I've observed are always fundamental (cyan, magenta, yellow, green, blue, red, gray). When the color is set or changed (described below) the color seems to be set at random - that is to say I cannot distinguish a pattern as to how

(2) Scrolling the viewport or invoking a browser modal/prompt/file dialog will cause the entire region to change to one other color. Certain (I can't nail down the rhyme or reason) block-level changes to a page will cause a sub-region to appear, horizontally aligned with said block. Page-wide changes "reset" these sub regions. Animations on the page causing color changes (such as the fading in of a modal overlay div or the slow sliding up of the Firefox address bar when entering fullscreen) will cause rapid color change during the period of animation/transition. Blurring the Firefox window or using the PrintScreen button will also reset the entire region back to one color so I'm unable to get a screengrab of varying subregions.


Is this a problem with Firefox? Where should I file a bug report? Mozilla? Gnome? X? Mesa?

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.

FF 59 doesn't display some pages properly and is unusable. It has been the subject of other questions. As far as I can tell, this has not been fixed yest. I have tried FF 60 beta and this doesn't work either. I've turned off updating but it still downloads and updates when I restart.

As an aside to the FF 59 problem, this machine (a very basic 64-bit Acer netbook that is supposed to run Win10) has problems, but an older 32-bit Tosh (that isn't supposed to support Win10at all, but does) works fine with FF59.

As another aside to updates, I have an even older Compaq that cannot run greater than FF 48 (don't ask!) and it never tries to update, so I know that it is possible to fix. What do I need to do?
