It works in safe mode - the white space is gone. How do I keep it permanent?

Most likely one of your add-ons is incompatible with, see

I'm curious though, which version of Firefox were you using before
the update?  Can you tell me which add-on is causing the problem
by disabling them one by one?  Thanks.

I've no idea of the previous version sorry. Funny enough though, I reinstalled adblocker so that may have caused the issue so I'll follow the suggestions in your link and come back to you shortly.

Ok - I followed the instructions and disabled the add ons one by one. I found the culprit!

DOM Inspector caused the problem. When disabled, the white bar went. When enabled, the white bar came back.

Do I need DOM Inspector?

> Do I need DOM Inspector?

No, not for browsing the web.  It's a tool for web developers.

I think it's a bit odd that it broke Firefox like that though --
which version of DOM Inspector is it?

version DOM Inspector
Works for me, Firefox with DOMI on Linux.

Does the problem occur with all add-ons disabled, using the default
Firefox theme, and just DOMI enabled?

I disabled them all and tried each one individually. DOM caused the problem.
Ok, thanks.
