What are the default colors as set in "Options -> General" ?

Did you check for hardware acceleration and extension related issues?

Yep,

Try disabling Hardware Acceleration

Tools/Options > General > Performance > uncheck the boxes there and restart Firefox.

Is there an alternative to this? I already tried this and unchecking hardware acceleration Firefox feels super clunky

Well if it's Graphics related I'd check to see if the latest updates/drivers are installed.

Tried Safe Mode? Could be an Extension... Or 'chrome tweaking'.....

How exacly I should use safe mode? I need to browse as I would normally do and see if the issue shows up?

My only extension is Ublock Origin and the only chrome tweaking is removing the "Visit" bar on the address bar. Not sure if some of these could be causing the issue

Not if you want to solve your problem there isn't.

Well I just used the refresh feature and let's hope this fix it for good.

Btw does anyone know if there is a benefit or if there is a difference at all besides saving your bookmarks, history, etc from starting a new profile from scratch to using the refresh thing?
