Did you search the forum? I think I’ve seen something about this (or a similar-looking problem) before.

try disabling hardware acceleration. settings>about.


That did it! Thanks for the help.
The “blob” dissapears when hardware acceleration is off, when turned back on I can move up and down the command ribbon and it will reappear.
