With recent Nightly, fcitx-chewing candidate window becomes black.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install both fcitx and fcitx-chewing
2. Pick a text box
3. Hit 5j/
   (Corresponds to ㄓㄨㄥ in Chinese)

The candidate window has a black background, making it hard to read (see screenshot below)

I've tested multiple Nightly versions, and looks like it's a regression:

2018-01-13-10-02-55 good
2018-01-15-10-00-56 good
2018-01-16-10-01-14 good
2018-01-16-22-01-10 good
2018-01-17-10-01-29 bad
2018-01-17-22-03-27 bad
Screenshot for versions <= 2018-01-16-22-01-10: the candidate window has normal background color
Hello Martin Stránský,

After testing with many changesets on mozilla-central, I find my issue related to one of your previous changes. Could you have a look?

I've done more tests on 8dee5d879ef1:

* MOZ_GTK_TITLEBAR_DECORATION=none ./mach run => good (blue background + white characters like my second screenshot)
* MOZ_GTK_TITLEBAR_DECORATION=client ./mach run => broken (black background + black characters like my first screenshot)
* MOZ_GTK_TITLEBAR_DECORATION=system ./mach run => good

Looking at 8dee5d879ef1, I think it's not so correct. The default value of sCSDSupportLevel shouldn't be touched. In other words, it should remain CSD_SUPPORT_NONE.

My environment: LXQt ($XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=LXQt) + xfwm4

I'll look at it. My guess is that you don't have compositing WM.

We should fix that also for Firefox 59 as it's affected by this.

Thanks for the hint. Indeed compositing was not enabled. After enabling it (xfwm4-tweaks-settings -> Compositor -> Enable display compositing) and re-login, nothing has changed. fcitx-chewing candidate window is still broken if MOZ_GTK_TITLEBAR_DECORATION is `client` or unspecified.
