    Default firefox screen corruption

    Has anyone else have a problem where Firefox corrupts the screen
    when it drops down menus.

    This is 11.4
    KDE 4.7
    Nvidia blob
    It does it with FF from 5.0 to nightly

    This didn't happen until today. I did KDE 4.7 a few days ago
    and did another update today.

    ....puzzled !

    As I could seem to get it to attach to this reply
    Ignore the two Opera screenshots - that's me moaning at them about font issues :-)

    I upgraded to fx 7 alpha (which seems pretty stable) and the problem disappeared.
    Incidentally some other small niggles disappeared too.

    The SUSE security updates that I installed this morning (8/3/2011) have affected my FIrefox also but not as severely as thread starter person. Foxfilre screen loads but reference to my Yahoo Home page has been dismantled. I need to delete cookies and then relogin to Yahoo to recover my home page. Upon next activation of Firefox, I get no homepage and need to go through the process again.

    On opera I needed to do the same process, i.e., remove cookies and relogin to yahoo homepage and after that I get homepage. Opera does remember the info and reloads and starts homepage on subsequent restarts at least thus far.

    Seems that something in the Security list of updates has indeed affected firefox and opera

    No problem here

    Try a new .mozilla, just to test a plain new setup. Rename your current one, so you can switch back later

    PS Just a thought. At home it works OK but the firefox dropdown menus don't have fancy shadows
    they are just plain blue. Once I did the updates on the machine at work firefox has posh shadowed
    dropdown menus, which is what seems to get messed up. As per the previous poster I tried firefox 7
    and that works fine ( with fancy shadowed dropdowns )

    My home machine has Nvidia 275.19 I will update it to 280 and see what happens then do a zypper dup
    and see it it's the update that messes it up

    OK, updating to Nvidia 280 didn't make any difference
    So far so good

    Are you using Firefox from the OBS?
    If so, have you done this
