    Another test. At left the Opensuse default Firefox, updated today via zypper. At right, the newest stable bundle that can be downloaded and running out of box.






    It's definitely something with the standard version of Opensuse. One thing I noticed is that the Opensuse version uses the KDE filepicker, while all the others use the GTK standard. Maybe this modification made by Opensuse devs was the cause of rendering problems?

    Fresh install.

    If you switch to the upstream branding it should solve the issue

    Probably a problem with style sheets and branding I'd guess

    I see the same here on 15.1

    Try removing the openSUSE branding package

    I does not bother me so I'll not try that here.

    I was personally speculating
    - Possibly a rendering engine issue
    - A mistaken or accidentally removed tag that allows the footer background to spill beyond the intended object on the page.

    Took a quick look using common browser Developer tools and didn't find anything in the CSS or the object on the page approximately where the spillage happens.

    And how I do that or what package should I remove? I'm new at this

    And... WORKS! Great.



    And the best thing is the KDE Filepicker still works. Now is perfect.

    Thanks so much, everyone. Just one more question. The removed branding will come back if I made a snapshot update?

    Package locks serve the purpose of preventing changes to the set of installed packages on the system. The locks are stored in form of a query in /etc/zypp/locks file (see also locks(5)). Packages matching this query are then forbidden to change their installed status; an installed package can’t be removed, not installed package can’t be installed.
    addlock (al) [options] package−name...

    Add a package lock. Specify packages to lock by exact name or by a glob pattern using * and ? wildcard characters.

    McCloud, it would be interesting to know if the problem recurs if you change either of the following settings via about:config in your Firefox urlbar:

    layout.word_select.stop_at_punctuation (is false in upstream branding?)
    browser.display.use_system_colors (is true in upstream branding?)

    I would try it myself, but I only use ESR, and upstream branding.
