Whole screen fades slightly when I type into the Google Search box.

已張貼

For what seems like perhaps a couple of weeks, I have had an odd situation where typing into the Google search box in Firefox 60.7.2esr (32-bit) causes the whole screen to fade somewhat until I click elsewhere on the screen (whether a link or an inactive area). Importantly, I am talking about the search box at Google.com, *not* the Firefox search box (the issue does *not* occur when I use the latter). It's kind of like what you see happen to the screen when activating the Windows Snipping tool, before taking the snip, though not quite *that* faded.

In the attached image, the left half is *without* the cursor positioned in the search box, and the right half -- which shows the fading -- is *with* the cursor positioned in the search box for typing.

Some points: (1) This does not happen when using Google Search in Chrome or IE. (Firefox is my default browser, BTW.) (2) This does not happen on either of my other two Windows 7 pc's, which also use Firefox 60.7.2esr (32-bit). (3) Disabling add-ons by using Safe Mode doesn't change the behavior. (4) Disabling Hardware Acceleration doesn't change the behavior.

My main concern with this behavior is in case it indicates the possibility of some kind of malware. My secondary concern is whether it might indicate some other current or potential problem with my system, although I haven't noticed any other issues thus far. Other than that, I don't mind the behavior, as it doesn't slow me down or prevent me from accomplishing anything.

Any suggestions or other thoughts? (I prefer not to do a reset.) Thanks.

Hi Rick216, I don't see that in Firefox 67 (64-bit), logged out, at the moment. However, Google is a bit notorious for conducting user interface experiments on its search page, so maybe you're just temporarily (un)lucky. You can try to escape from experiments by clearing cache and Google cookies:

(1) Clear Firefox's Cache

See: How to clear the Firefox cache

If you have a large hard drive, this might take a few minutes.

(2) Remove the site's cookies (save any pending work first). While viewing a page on the site, try either:

  • right-click (on Mac Ctrl+click) a blank area of the page and choose View Page Info > Security > "Clear Cookies and Site Data"
  • (menu bar) Tools > Page Info > Security > "Clear Cookies and Site Data"

In the dialog that opens, you will see one or more matches to the current address so you can remove the site's cookies individually without affecting other sites.

Then try reloading the page. Any difference?

jscher2000 -

In trying out your approach, I decided to first simply try deleting Google cookies (which I have CCleaner set to "keep"). While I wasn't expecting that alone could solve the issue, it *did*! No more of the described fading. If it was indeed a Google interface experiment, I don't appreciate their making me worry about having malware (aren't some exploits related to the desktop?).

Anyway, thanks so much for the solution -- a nice easy one :).
