Firefox opens and shows the web site but is shifted over to the left so only half is visible. IE8 is fine

Posted

Firefox opens and loads the web site, but it has a blank 3 inch border down the whole of the right hand side, Firefox is moved over to the left so that i can only see half of it. The red cross to close it down is still at the very top right hand corner!

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Earlier this week.
