I just installed Fedora 16 and the installation went smoothly. When the desktop comes up however the display is faulty. Letters on the display are missing. The Firefox icon for example is labeled "F r fox". The black banner on the top is either transparent or invisible. The icon buttons are there but are invisible unless I pass the mouse cursor over them. If I bring up a terminal window it displays OK and the Firefox browser displays OK. The faulty patchy appearance makes the desktop extremely hard to navigate.

Fedora 16 is EOL and no longer supported. Please use Fedora 19 and see if the issue persists.
