Why do the desktop image and folders show through the top 1 inch of Firefox where the blue bar used to be?


It looks like much of the top part of the Firefox screen is missing and I can see a fuzzy, blurred desktop image there instead of the former blue and I think orange bar. How can I get back the old FF appearance? [my office computer hasn't changed and it's the same version of FF]
