I have another kind of problem with Firefox


Hi there, I have one question about firefox popup menus. At some site I'm clicking a link, and popup window appears. This is good because the site does notify that to work properly popup windows must be allowed in firefox. So the window appears, but with wrong chars coding, so I want to change it accessing View->Text Coding, but the problem is that the popup window doesn't contain any menu bar at all, it also has'nt any tool bar... the only thing that is showed in this window - the text, that the page contains. So how do I can make that popup window look normal (I mean it has to show menu bar, tool bar, and all other elements of firefox window) so I can change the text coding?

Thanks for information! I typed about:config in address bar and changed the setting I need, so now I'm seeing menu bar and am able to change chars coding. Thanks again!
