The following advice is based on Windows 7 and I don't know whether Windows 8 has the same issues or something new.

Firefox stores window dimensions and toolbar customizations in a file. You might try renaming that file so that Firefox returns to the default settings for toolbars and windows. Here's how:

(1) Open your personal settings (AKA Firefox profile) folder

Help (or Alt+h) > Troubleshooting Information > "Show Folder" button

(2) Switch back to Firefox and exit the program (e.g., File > Exit)

(3) Wait a few moments for Firefox to finish updating files in your settings folder, then rename localstore.rdf to something else, like localstore-bad.rdf or localstore.old. Alternately, you can delete the file.

(4) You're done with your profile folder and you can restart Firefox now.

Any luck?
