Upper right corner radio buttons disappear

Whenever I upgrade Firefox from version 32, the radio buttons in far upper right corner for "minimize, change window size, and close", disappear. They'll appear momentarily, and then they're gone. If I downgrade back to version 32, I get them back, so I've been keeping version 32 just for this reason. Was wondering why they're disappearing in version 33!

Thanks

Are you using an installed theme, or the default?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} While you are in safe mode;

Type about:preferences<Enter> in the address bar

Select Advanced > General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?

Then restart.

THANKS!! Unchecking the "Use hardware acceleration when available" function, solved the problem, as you stated. Am still curious, what changed in version 33, from previous versions, that necessitated this action to restore these simple and expected buttons feature?

You may not believe this, but turning off Hardware Acceleration seems the cure for like 20 percent of the problems (my thinking).
