Why does the horrizontal bar always start at the top in my Firefox?

Post by Albert on Thu Apr 22, 2010 3:16 am

I had to do a systems restore and after that I found that every time I start Firefox the horizontal bar which should be at the very bottom of the page is somewhere near the top. I have to pull it down to the bottom to resume browsing.
How can I fix this problem ?
example attached.
Thanks

I have never seen this before. The first thing I would try is uninstall FF and reinstall its newest version (3.6.3 if Im not mistaken).

Ugh, in that case it appears it is somewhere in your firefox settings. I do not know how much time you have invested in personalizing your Firefox, but it could be a good idea to create a new profile and delete the old one.


More information here: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Profiles.
It will tell you, among other things, how to backup your bookmarks and passwords so you can use them for the fresh profile.

Thanks for your help Gab.......it's all too complicated for me. I don't know what I;ll do now. I'll probably just put up with the slight problem.

Hello,

Could it be a theme or add-on which you are using caused this?

Doctor, thanks it's fixed now. I had to uninstall my cherished and hard working......Adblock Plus, to fix the problem. I don't know what I'll do now with all the annoying adds I see now.........and BTW.......I liked your old favicon.....the flashing one........I could always pick up the GeekPolice easy from my bookmarks when I saw your old flashing favicon.
