I first noticed the problem after upgrading Firefox from Mozilla's

by changing themes and their properties. that is likely the source of

my system is likely to be a hybrid, to put it delicately, as I had a
Devuan base (using Jessie) and upgraded to Stretch from it.
I don't know the implications of this.
It sounds to me like you should try a supported DE and see if it is
reproducible. I know XFCE uses both GTK2 and GTK3 libraries and runs
these web browsers without issue. If it is not, I would file a bug
report with the folks at Trinity.
I will consider this. as a matter of fact, in my struggles I feared
I was going to mess things up beyond recovery so I installed xfce4
on the side (I can log into it) to continue work if I had to.
I don't remember a lot as I didn't do much there but it did run Pan
and I believe FF. but I used my Windows 10 machine to research
problems and eventually hit on the device of stripping out GTK3.
about possible bugs, I may check it out over the weekend. my suspicion
is some conflict in themes. right now I am reluctant to test reinstall
my suspects, gtk3-tqt-engine-trinity and gtk2-engine-oxygen because of
time-constraints though I suppose it'd be easy enough.
