Okay, the problem comes down to a gradient being applied to the table head <thead> element.
Code:
  background:linear-gradient(to right, rgba(179,220,237,1) 0%,rgba(41,184,229,1) 50%,rgba(188,224,238,1) 100%);
background:-moz-linear-gradient(to right, rgba(179,220,237,1) 0%,rgba(41,184,229,1) 50%,rgba(188,224,238,1) 100%);
Removing that from the CSS (both, including the Mozilla specific variant) fixes it. Firefox seems to ignore the -moz- variant anyway, using the CSS3 version. Oh good. I think when I implemented it (3 years ago?) it didn't? Can't recall.

For some reason the gradient is being applied well beyond the <thead>. How strange. I'm not entirely sure the gradient is applied at all, in any browser. Hmph. That's what I get for trying to be fancy... I wonder when that stopped working.

I guess I'll just remove those gradients... I don't think we'll miss them from the table header row.

Almost perfect now : the Reports / Exponent Status page still has that problem.

Thanks !

Last fiddled with by S485122 on 2017-06-25 at 07:16 Reason: And now just remove the transparency from the menus... Transparency is introducing noise in the interface.

I may have just fixed that... I had similar linear-gradients applied to <thead> in a different CSS so I removed those as well. I didn't check where / what those apply to so I can't say for sure it's fixed.

I finally got around to looking at it again (James had reminded me as well...)

It should be fixed now, fingers crossed.

At first I realized it was a problem with the linear-gradient applied to the table-head. While not strictly necessary, I kind of liked the pleasing shades of blue...personal preference.

I removed it from other spots but forgot that the exponent report was getting a similar styling from somewhere else... whoops.

So, after looking at it some more just now and inspecting in Firefox, I finally narrowed it down to the "background-attachment: fixed" style also applied to the <thead> element. Forgive the "too much detail" but maybe someone will be interested.

Anyway, everything I could find about how to properly set a linear-gradient on a table head says to set that to "fixed", so I did. However, Firefox 54 decided it would barf if that's set to anything but "local" so that's what I did.

I'd say I'm 60% positive it's a bug in Firefox 54... I can't think of any good reason why it would work in 53 (and all other browsers) and then in 54 it pukes unless the background-attachment is local ... it should be "fixed" to that table header row but somehow FF 54 is letting it "bleed" out to the rest of the page in unpredictable ways. The fact that the colors go entirely bananas when dropping down menus or just moving your mouse around tells me there's something seriously wrong in how FF is handling it, but whatever. LOL

So, like I said it should be fixed but if you continue to see any problems with it, let me know.

I was testing out setting up a virtual replica, but doing it over a WAN. The physical box didn't have enough space for the interim snapshots while the main vdisk was replicating. Argh. So it put Primenet into standby... Sigh... I fixed that and now it'll be coming back up shortly. Lesson learned... if space is already low in a situation like that, don't even bother.
