    Screen Display Boxes Sometimes White -


    Win 8.1 Pro Update
    Firefox 28.0
    Win 8 Desktop Mode

    Example attached is a screen clip from Google Map - the + and - (zoom ) not shown in the box.

    User error is most likely the cause; but Personalization changes have not corrected the issue. The Win 7 box does not have this problem.

    That is an issue with Google Maps. I get it with my laptop that runs Xubuntu 14.04 LTS, when I view Google Maps in Chrome.

I have never seen a screen like this in the 20 years I've had my own computer. I had Windows 8 on a secondary drive as a dual boot with Windows 7 temporarily as I migrated to Windows 8. I somehow messed up either the boot loader or somehow corrupted the Win8 install for which I'll skip the...

Hi, I have an issue with a white rectangular box appearing in the top left corner of my laptop screen. It covers the icons behind it and renders them 'unclickable'. Nothing happens if the box itself is clicked on. It does not stay on top of other windows, just the desktop.
