Weird white or black "boxes" around the top of several of my sites

The boxes in the screencast above are called the "focus outline" and they appear when you move around the site using the keyboard. It is an essential navigation tool for visitors with vision and movement disabilities so please don't try to disable it.

The contrasting black outline is added to the area of the page that has focus. Removing focus outlines can create issues for people navigating the web with a keyboard, and isn't recommended. In some territories, there are legal stipulations for accessibility so removing accessibility features may cause legal issues for the website owner.

I am not using the keyboard though, only the mouse

It is not normal for it to appear when using the mouse so it could be a temporary Squarespace issue. If you are using the latest version of your browser then I recommend you contact Squarespace Customer Care for advice.

Let us know how you get on.
