Quite interesting. We’ve had some UI issues with Manjaro in general, can’t say I’ve seen reports on actual webpage display issues. I’ll ask around and see what I can find.
Also cc @sriram would know more than me on this one.

Other Manajro guys (or girls!) may be able to assist as well, @hello @prinzvonlicht @drose2211

Actually, can you try disabling fingerprinting protection in the Shields panel?
Could be a device recognition canvassing issue.

Edit: Canvassing

@Mattches thanks for the mention. Unfortunately, I can’t reproduce this issue even after testing three presentations. Could you share your presentation @drose2211? Perhaps is related to it.

While I’m unable to reproduce your issue, I’m now unable to load Google Slides at all on Release build. Shields (domain level or global) don’t seem to have any effect either.
Going to ping some team members to see what they have to say.


Let me know if that doesn’t work

I can confirm switching fingerprinting from “block all fingerprinting” to “block third party fingerprinting” fixes the issue

Thanks for everyone reporting.
@hello, does allowing fpp while shields are up change anything on your end?
