Firefox: Broken window title bar

Post by palimmo »

Hi.
In the last weeks every time I start Firefox on LM 20 (Cinnamon) I get "half-maximised" with a broken window title bar.
Like on this post on reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/commen ... pening_up/

Any ideas?

Everything is up to date on my machine.

Thanks!

2 more details:
- it happens always, after a new boot.
- it affects apparently only Firefox.

I have seen this behaviour occasionally , but it is not only in Firefox. Yesterday it happened using Xviewer. It happened in LM 20 and LM 20.1.

Hopefully i don't experience that problem. I see on your reddit post that a Windows user is having the same problem so it must be a Firefox issue.

As Terryphi said, it occurs on Mint with other applications as well.
On my system exclusively with Firefox, so far.

I would say, that apparently now it is solved.
Probably thanks to any update.
Thanks.

Sorry, we have not seen that problem, so can't really comment on it.

Posting a picture of the problem so we don't have to rely on Redit.

I'll do that asap.
Btw it is exactly the same you posted:
- Firefox title bar is maximised (as expected it should be)
- the most area of Firefox window is taken from the desktop background (or the other application window behind Firefox)

This is something that happens to me semi-regularly as well - I thought it was because I'm not running the default theme, and just lived with it, but if there is a way of fixing it, that would be great.

I encourage both Sally and Palimmo to post their system specs by typing this in a terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxxxrz
Post the output in "Code" tags. The button that inserts these tags is marked </>

Then also start Driver Manager and report what graphic drivers are available. Here are mine:
