Here's the regression for this between 2021-04-06 and 2021-04-07

Can you please try bisecting with the browser.proton.enabled pref set to true to find the actual culprit?

Flags: needinfo?(catalin.sasca)

Sure thing, so after bisecting, it seems that there were some changes on toolbar between 2021-03-26 and 2021-03-27. While on builds from 26 and before, the toolbar will look like in the attachment I will add here.

The pushlog url between those two builds is:

Mozregression will point to:
Backed out 4 changesets (bug 1696041) for causing gecko decision task failure. CLOSED TREE

Backed out changeset a0b814900c36 (bug 1696041)

Hope this helps!

This bug happened because we override the existing :root rule with transparent !important. I verified the fix with a Windows 8.1 VM and verified that bug 1700873 does not recur.
