The Title Bar and its controls are superimosed on the navigation toolbar
the Question is it. the overlap prevents me from easily accessing controls on the navigation bar. I don't understand this. I asked this earlier and got dumped because i changed all the files as requested and the problem hasn't gone away. I downloaded and installed Firefox 17 and it is still there! I also upgraded my operating system to mac OS 6.8 with no help at all. I can get you a copy of the start up reading from the console if you want. I've included a screen shot below..... wait.
I just reverted to the default persona from a musical one - the problem disappeared. Why do I get this when I add personas? Let me try others.... That is the focus of the problem! The personas for some reason exclude some of the toolbars and "shove" the title bar down onto and superimpose it upon the navigation bar. That may not make sense, but that is what it looks like from this end. Curious, though, the drop down options are still in a strange configuration, a different typeface than they were before, which happened when the personas superimposed the title bar on the navigation toolbar. So, obviously I can't use the personas. Is there a way around this, please? there is obviously a conflict somewhere, bit I can't figure it as this is a new development ever since I tried to install a new glims version for Safari and this problem appeared after that. De-installing glims did not eliminate the problem so it obviously changed something in the Firefox configuration files. The guy at glims was mystified, too. Any suggestions?

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.
- Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
Thank you, but unchecking the hardware acceleration box didn't make any change to the personas shift of the title bar area, nor any change in the font difference in the right click drop down boxes - and, yes, I restarted Firefox after unchecking the box.
Curious that the problem went away when I switched to the default layout, but is there anything else it might be, please?
Thank you, doug
Which change from the default layout is causing this?
Whenever I even mouse over the pesonas in the dropdown tools menu, the title bar at top and the buttons thereupon drop down and superimpose onto the navigation bar just below it. I also have an arial or helvetica font on the right click drop downs where it was gill sans before. Just changing with the mouse-over causes this. And it still happens now that I've upgraded to MAC OS 10.8. New version 17, new MAC OS and this still happens and is not a hardware acceleration issue. I'm stumped.
What can we do? Do you want me to copy off the Firefox initiation lines from the console log?
