Hello. I recently noticed an issue with Firefox. When I open it the first time, no Tab is showing and neither is Minimize, Maximize and Close on the top right. If I close the browser and reopen it, those 4 things that were missing, come back. I noticed a little bit later, that if I keep closing and reopening it, those 4 things keep disappearing the 1st,3rd,5th,7th,9th time I open the browser after closing it. So, as you see it's like a cycle. Other than this issue I really like Firefox. I've been using Firefox for years.

Hi ocean-guy, when you get the window with the invisible or offscreen title bar, could you try switching its mode between maximized and resizable? You can do that by first pressing Alt+Spacebar and then clicking either Restore or Maximize (one will be grayed out). Does either mode work better than the other?

If Alt+Spacebar doesn't give you any response could you check whether Firefox is in its full screen view? The F11 key switches between regular and browser full screen views. (This is different from the full screen view that pages can invoke where the Esc key cancels it.)

Hi, ocean-guy It would be disastrous if one of the tabs has an important webpage that is based on session and cannot be restored by reloading or refreshing the page.
