Have rebooted multiple times. Tried different settings in options. Did not add any add-ons. Did have gimespace - which kept sending the download window off screen; i uninstalled, but it never came back.
I did go in safemode - and download window showed from firefox dropdown.
when the downward arrow shows to the right of firefox dropdown (don't know how to change), which says "Display the progress of ongoing downloads"- this is when I can't access the window. Disabled add-ons alone - but arrow still there, so don't know how to change this.
Are you using a multi monitor setup?
If you do then try to open Firefox on the first window.
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
In Firefox 4 and later Safe mode disables extensions and disables hardware acceleration.
Try to disable hardware acceleration.
- Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
If disabling hardware acceleration works then check if there is an update available for your graphics display driver.
