Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140628030201

Steps to reproduce:

In Firefox Nightly, open a webpage with lot of text or images on it (For example: any wikipedia page, netflix). Right click on the page. 


Actual results:

The drop-down text becomes difficult to read as it overlaps with the background. Same thing happens if I click on any menu bar items.


Expected results:

Drop-down text should be clearly visible

Can you provide a screenshot? Does this happen if you restart Firefox in safe mode? ( https://support.mozilla.org/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode )

It works for me using latest Nightly 33.0a1 2014-06-29 under Ubuntu 12.10 32-bit.
Component: Untriaged → Menus

I took these pics in Fedora 20 with KDE desktop. Both OS and Nightly are up to date. Earlier I faced this issue in Ubuntu 14.04.

Can you check against an empty profile and in safe mode? See the link I posted in comment #1 for how to enable safe mode...

Here is attachment of this issue with Nightly in safe mode.

I also tested this issue with Mate and Gnome desktops and this issue doesn't happen in those desktop environments. Also this doesn't happen with Firefox stable in KDE.

This is really odd. Were the menus always half-transparent like this, or did it break recently ?

I am not sure when it broke. I only noticed it on Friday.

Can you try to find a regression range using http://mozilla.github.io/mozregression/ ?

I installed mozregression and executed tests with it. All tests succeeded and I did not find any regression. 

I have a symlink that points to Firefox nightly executable in /usr/local/bin. This issue only happens when i open Nightly executable through the symlink. It doesn't happen if i directly open Nightly.

I also have same setup in a different machine. This issue doesn't happen in that machine.

I am seeing this same issue in Ubuntu 14.04 with unity desktop. I added a video to youtube that I recorded using simple screen recorder.

Perhaps others can reproduce using these steps.

1. Copy Firefox nightly directory to /usr/local/bin.
2. Create a symlink in /usr/local/bin pointing to Firefox nightly binary and use that symlink to launch Firefox. 

I am seeing this issue in a different computer than earlier reported. I did not see this issue on this computer before.
