when I use inspector (Q) it often leaves grey ghost panel covering about 3 inches of the bottom of my browser window), where the black html panel was - and it is in EVERY OPEN TAB, and if I try to use it again, it will then open a html panel above the grey "ghost" panel, and sometimes even leave that grey too - I havn't found a way to get rid of it, except for restarting Firefox.

- and "link" labels are above it i.e. it's below the regular bottom of a firefox window

Heres a screen shot

i don't know if it would help, but you could try resetting all entries in "about:config" that start with "devtools." (by right-clicking them > reset).

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

Try to disable hardware acceleration.
