Over the past few weeks a problem cropped up for me when using Firefox 55 on my fully updated Manjaro MATE system. As you can see in the attached screenshot, when I try click on an extension's toolbar icon (such as uBlock Origin or Multi-Account Containers) to open its pop up, they always show up as black boxes...

I also observed that if I move my mouse cursor over the black boxes, the cursor would change between a hand an a pointer which suggests that the UI elements are still there.

How do I troubleshoot this? Thanks!

P.S. Here is a link to a screenshot in case of issue with the attachment:

Hi Handy. Likewise, great to see you here. I realise this is the out of date forum - for a second I thought it had be resurrected & was still being used. I prefer this layout but will try spending more time on the current one.

More power to you meantime.

I think that as one browser/search-engine becomes less free & open, then others will pop-up, or modify their behavior in defense of freedom.

I unfortunately agree with you re. 1984. If it weren't for IT, BIG brother couldn't exist.

Perhaps we can take heart in the fact that A.I. will be/is smarter than us & will therefore make better decisions!

On a side note: you do realize amtrakuk that this forum now only exists for archival purposes & so has very few readers these days?

If you would like to reach a wide audience of the ever growing Manjaro community, then you need to post in the Discourse (not my favorite forum software) forum.

Welcome to all Manjaro newbies! It's good to see how Manjaro continues to grow as an OS, as a team & as a community.

More power to you all!

It has been rumbling around Mozilla's security being compromised by Google and Mozilla openly announcing they will be "getting political" to
filter what will be displayed though Firefox.

I read in the Mozilla blog (link below) their aim is to educate and empower web users against misinformation.  I do agree filtering is needed
but who determines what is or is not mis-information, Going forward is Mozilla qualified to determine whats wrong or right, Is Mozilla going to use
guidance from all financial political, social sectors?  I can't see how they can.  It's has an odour of 1984 if you ask me.

We know algorithms and filters can be "tweaked" in the background at any time without users knowing, A couple of years ago Facebook got caught
with their "Happy News" experiment designed to influence peoples mood, Facebook later tried to cover up.  Youtube has been caught routinely
changing viewing stats and demonetise videos if it isn't broadly complaint with their advertising policy.

Will the principles of Linux, of Free and Open be affected by only displaying allowing websites the browser deems acceptable for you to visit.

i think what/however outside influences try to shape our world, The truth, Free thinking/speech, Openness, Controversial ideas, inspiration, will
always prevail and has got us to where we are today.  After all without these we won't have Linux! :)

Whats your thoughts?

Hi John,

You have posted in the "Classic" - old, out of date & unused Manjaro forum, which exists "only" for reference purposes.
Please create an account here: & where you will have an audience when you vent your frustrations, & also I expect that a solution to your problem will be supplied.

Good luck (& welcome ;) )

Hi victorsk,

This forum is the "old classic forum" it has been closed for longer than I can remember at this point. So if you would like to use the current Manjaro forum then you should create an account on & seek your permissions to do what you will over there.
Good luck :)

Just for completeness: This bug is fixed in compiz-reloaded (0.8.x fork packaged in the AUR) and I reported the bug against the 0.9.x branch:
Your installer writes Fat32 instead of of vfat

 UUID=3005-E2A1                            /boot/efi      Fat32   defaults,noatime 0 2

UUID=3005-E2A1                            /boot/efi      vfat   defaults,noatime 0 2

and during installation it stops with:

Boost.Python-Fehler in Job "bootloader".
<class 'subprocess.CalledProcessError'>
Command 'grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=Manjaro --force' returned non-zero exit status 1.
  File "/usr/lib/calamares/modules/bootloader/", line 334, in run

  File "/usr/lib/calamares/modules/bootloader/", line 305, in prepare_bootloader
    install_grub(efi_directory, fw_type)

  File "/usr/lib/calamares/modules/bootloader/", line 236, in install_grub

  File "<string>", line 2, in <module

Thats a real showstopper!!!

Manjaro xfce from today ( 22.07.2017 )


one hour later:

could start Manjaro but in terminal locale for german keyboard is missing.

Yes, i told the installer which locale to use.

Have to stop now .. getting angry!!
