when clicking menu tabs images appear, instead of regular drop down menu can this be fixed?


When in Firefox and click the menu tabs ex: File, Edit, View etc... I get a repeat but blurry, and smaller picture of what I'm actually seeing on my internet page. The drop down menu appears small and unreadable.

I wish I could include the print screen of the problem
