Windows 7: Missing text in boxes in gmail

Missing text in boxes in gmail

Hi all,
when I use FF (version 16.0.2), Win 7 X64, to go to gmail.com to create, read my gmail at different times, when I get to the gmail home page & create a new msg or read one, it has boxes that are missing the text in them.

I can hold the cursor on a box and after a brief time it will give me the contents of the box, but it is really getting to be a pain in the neck to do this time and again. I don't know if there is a setting that is incorrect or what?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,
Cindy

Hi I can see your problem, must be quite annoying as there is so many boxes!

Do you happen to have any plugins/themes installed?

Anything you installed recently prehaps a particular program/plugin?

Edit: Do you have AVG safe searched enabled? Taking a punt here but seen this

Have you tried?

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

For some reason, the text is not showing up in the dialog boxes, which makes it impossible to download software unless you have a VERY good memory about where the "Next" button is.
