    Text obscured in Firefox URL bar

    I just did a fresh install of Lubuntu 14.04 and everything works fine except for this problem (see screen cap):



    I've deleted my profile, tried different themes, disabled extensions, started in safe mode, reinstalled firefox, went to google and IRC for help, etc. Nothing is working. Hoping someone can help here. I can't be the only one who has encountered this issue.

    Your not. Same issue with Xubuntu.

    What if I downgraded to Lubuntu 12.04? Would it matter?

    It would be a bad idea, as Lubuntu 12.04 is no longer supported.
    I suggest using another browser for some days waiting for a fix to arrive.

    So this is a known issue and a bug report has been filed?

    I don't know, you tell me:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox

    What I meant was that it is a very obvious error. It's likely that a developer is aware of it, at least if it was me I would wait for the next release before taking action.

    I don't know about that. I use Firefox on Lubuntu 14.04 and don't have the problem.
