Firefox home page is fine, however when a search topic is entered the resulting page results show the searched result is overlapped by the url for each result, A complete shutdown of Firefox will clear this overlapping but after a few hours of activity the overlapping reappears. I've included a screen shot of the issue. I've searched many forums for solutions but cant find anything helpful. thank you.JR

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
