    Thanks.
    OOPS.
    Didn't even noticed it.

    Google is overall a white, pretty empty page with or without an extra bar.

    Not sure, does it happen in all browsers...

    Guess I should have mentioned I'm using a Firefox derivative....Cyberfox x64. I would assume that it does that to all ff based browsers at least. And I'm running 8, and not 8.1.

    Thanks.

    Nice one!

    I'm on Pale Moon x64 on W8 as well and the blue bar is also seen.

    Thanks for mentioning another fox derivative, been already moved from WaterFox... IceWeasel... and so on...

    I knew that you were running 8.0 but I just though that you might have an interest in going that route because your initial post indicate some interest in going back to Win 7. Sorry if you consider that information to be misplaced or irrelevant.

    Updated to correct my statement above. Also see my previous replies in this thread. Thank you.

    Not Waterfox, but Cyberfox. https://8pecxstudios.com/
    I was on Waterfox, but the guy running it has disappeared, and all production has halted.

    Cyberfox even has an Amd optimized version
