Steps to reproduce:

Firefox 83.0 on Windows 10 20H2. I installed an update manually using the full installer from the website 1 and then noticed something was wrong with the new tab search box, it didn't look right.

Actual results:

I was unable to search anything in the new tab search box. After that I opened another new tab and that tab (and every subsequent one) had the proper G icon (for Google search) on the left and I was able to search. I have not been able to reproduce this issue since then.

An animated GIF illustrating the issue is attached.

Expected results:


Hello Ray,
I tried reproducing this issue on the latest versions of Firefox Nightly 85.0a1 (2020-11-25), beta 84.0b4 and release 83.0 but the search box works for me without any issues.

Can you test the issue while in Safe Mode? You can find helpful info here : .
Also a fresh new profile could help. You can find more about creating a new profile here : .
If possible, you can test this issue on the nightly build as well. Download the build from : .

Unfortunately the computer it happened on is not usually available and if it is I am often busy on it, so I think it's unlikely I will be able to help with this one. Sorry. Thanks for testing.
