    yes it is my image...and note how the tabs and url dropdown menu is grey not white like it should be I've searched the net and this problem seems to be related to freeze ups but theres no freeze ups with me just what I mentioned before

    my thought: don't sweat the small stuff...that is, isn't the gray box
    as function as would be a white box?

    yeah not really sweating it,it just bothers me when something doesn't work the way I want/supposed to and I like to know the cause.

    Under KDE, is there not a location where one specifies the GTK Styles and Fonts (under Appearance and Themes) ?

    Is firefox is a GTK app ? If so, is it possible you changed a setting there, not knowing it would impact firefox?

    I notice from your screen shot that apart from having a propensity toward watching YouTube - You do have beagle installed.
    Would be a good idea to see that go. Search beagle in software management and scrap the lot.
    Are you trying to run multiple instances of YouTube? And what about Desktop effects? Personally I have no problem with desktop effects - whatever I'm doing. But just trying to eliminate possible issues for you.

    oh no I don't have beagle installed I know its junk I used to have it as the search tool in the app launcher till it kept making my panel crash all the time so uninstalled it an now everything is fine. Did the same for firefox an I'm pretty sure the desktop effects aren't effecting it either,it a rare thing but it does happen from time to time maybe it's just some kind of bug in firefox.

    of course you do, you both have it installed AND it is running...it
    can be seen plain as day (the doppy dog with a red bandana on your
    task bar, lower right...left of the clock and right of the speaker
    icon) in your desktop jpg here:
