here at a hardened stable amd64 system w/ stable KDE4/5/name-it-as-you-want desktop. Does it expect its ~/.mozilla directory in a a different place ?
Furthermore it looked now rather like a qt5 app than an older gtk app, or ?

Switched back to 45.1.0 - which works fine.
Will wait fro a subsequent bug fix release of 46.x before I'll try that again.

I've lost my special cursor after emerging 46.
Got a small simple arrow now.
Downgraded to 45.1.0.
Same thing.
Replaced ~./firefox file with a backup from before,didn't help.
I think I'll downgrade farther.

In my case I've lost support for Japanese input. With Firefox-46 scim is not activated. Looks like this is very buggy version.

Well I downgraded to FF-3.8.0, put back the old config, and now I've got back my old cursor.

Firefox 46 uses GTK3 by default. You can try emerging firefox (non -bin) with the gtk2 useflag.

I kinda solved. Worked around, better.

I was used to live with gentoo-xcursors (the purple one). Very gentooish.
But... this topic's issue.

My solution for this is creating one file called "index.theme" inside /home/youruser/.icons/default (I had to create directories) with the code:

index.theme:
[icon theme]
Inherits='your_theme'


Unfortunately this method doesn't work with gentoo-xcursors (obsolete theme?).

I found a purple theme called Breeze-Purple, so the code says
index.theme:
[icon theme]
Inherits=Breeze-Purple


This solved my issue.

A question: which theme do you use?
I think this issue doesn't occur with breeze theme.
