After recent update, stopped having text in bookmark tab and in active tabs, what should I do?
Hi @fuzz, and welcome!
I don’t really know what you mean by Tabs, but I suspect you mean the menus, and mine is perfectly fine, as you can see below:
Since everything is fine on my end, I’ll advise you to clear the Firefox cache:
Although I don’t know if this’ll work. If it fails, I suspect a theme problem, since it’s not a Manjaro or Firefox problem. So try a different theme.
Can you help me navigate, I see nothing, which button from top it is?
Press the left Alt button to have it appear temporarily.
Else right-click next to an open tab and select Menu Bar, to have it visible permanently:
Do you have any errors when launching FF from terminal? Have you tried with a fresh profile and no extensions loaded at start? or, back up profile, just in case and about:support “Refresh Firefox” ?
Even there, I see no text.
Then try as @jrichard326 suggested, or try another theme.
Or if you want to go nuclear, remove the
~/.mozilla folder and try again:
mv ~/.mozillla ~/.mozilla.backup
Note: this will remove all bookmarks, saved password and customizations, so use with care.
Did you reboot after the update?
I’ve even tried to reinstall firefox, it still looks bad.
No text is rendered everywhere from menu to bookmarks.
Have you tried removing the
mv ~/.mozilla ~/.mozila.backup
If I could just provide screenshot, it would be a lot better.
Please tell us what you have tried so far. Why ask for advice and not try the solutions that were proposed? Removing and reinstalling FF is a Windows type fix and very rarely will work under Linux. Removing the program will not work as your configuration(profile) which , most likely, is corrupt will remain.
It could also be an issue with userChrome.css if you have done any modifications there.
I have run into this although it was a great while back. I understand that this is a FF problem only?
Run Bleachbit, check all the boxes in the FF menu and be sure VACUUM is checked. (Reboot your system after).
If that alone didn’t work also do a “Deep Scan” and again reboot your system after. This should do it.
NOTE: If you are also using Firejail and used the
firecfg command undo it (
firecfg --clean ).
Let us know how this worked out for you.
