firefox does not display facebook fully or any other application I try to open and use.
When I open Firefox, then try to access my facebook account, I only get a partial fb page. It looks like the perimeter template, no detail, only a ribbon at the top. This is true for other applications as well as fb.

- Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
- Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
