Here's a picture of my problem.
To say the obvious, a program is putting up a box. Something's buggy in the program since the box is empty instead of having it's intended contents.
Beyond that hopefully someone who knows more will stop by.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
- Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.
Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
All these programs have free versions.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

- Microsoft Safety Scanner:
- Windows Defender: Home Page:

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
