  • Yup I have the same issue. Is this not a firefox issue? Does not seem to happen in any other app at all? Oct 29 '20 at 16:48

This is still happening as of November 14 with Firefox 82.0.3. There's a mozilla thread about it that indicates that it's an elementary-OS-specific issue and that it's a regression. They've been kicking the can down the road by marking the problem as "wontfix" for each successive Firefox version rather than addressing it. If this is specifically an elementary OS problem, can the underlying cause be fixed in the OS?


There is a workaround: in the file /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop change the line Exec=firefox %u to Exec=env GTK_CSD=0 firefox %u. Found this solution at https://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos/comments/j3h3fp/firefox_users_anyone_seeing_an_issue_where/
