    Weird issue with firefox - "stuck" boxes of text


    I'm not sure where this should go but I'm guessing it's a browser issue.

    Since last week, I've had an issue with Firefox where randomly a text box from a portion of a tab will get stuck somewhere on the screen, and that text box will then be visible on all other tabs. Even if I minimize Firefox, the text box will still hover over the desktop. Even playing Youtube videos full-screen, that text box will hover over it. Then it will randomly just disappear at some point if I go back to the original tab, but it takes a while.

    Here's an example - see the box of text there? It appears in every tab, stuck in exactly the same place in each tab. Even tabs from different websites.

    What could possibly be causing this? It's driving me nuts. I'm on Firefox 68 64bit. I updated my add-ons, and I even installed the latest nvidia video driver just in case.

    Firefox Search Box Text

    In previous versions of Firefox, I was able to find the option to disable the browser from showing previously entered text into a search or text box. For example, the User Name box on this forum, I type "O" and OrbitzXT pops up. Other text in other search boxes has been popping up as well. I am using Firefox 3.6, I've tried clearing histories and such and it still remembers text in the boxes. Any ideas how to disable this? I don't see any such option in Tools -> Options.

    Weird issue with firefox - "stuck" boxes of text

    Weird text box


    Hi All

    Question for you . I have been playing this game for a bit and I keep noticing this strange text box pop up when moving around it will just randomly pop up see the screen shot.


    Weird issue with firefox - "stuck" boxes of text [​IMG]


    Now I am unsure what is getting this box to pop up. I do have additional keyboards installed for Korean, Japanese & Russian so am not sure if this box is somehow related to them or to this game.

    Anyone ever seen this text box and if so is there a way to turn off this feature so it isn't always popping up and getting in my way?

    By the way if this helps at all the game is below in case anyone here plays it and has seen this box in the screen shot!

    Thanks
