My Firefox screen is only half as tall as it should be. Why did this happen and how do I fix it?

Yesterday I brought up firefox and it was only half as tall as normal. Can only see half of the screen. Any thoughts?

I appreciate your response!

I did install the application to my desktop (for some reason) so I modified the path, but Terminal said no such file. I opened my error console under "tools" and there were about 30 error messages and 2 warnings. I have no idea what to do with those. It did give me the correct path for firefox, so I just modified the end of the path after "MacOS" with no luck...no such file with the "safe mode" ending. Holding down the option key while opening Firefox didn't do anything but open firefox.

This is all above my head! I uninstalled and reinstalled a newer version but got the same result, same error messages. I guess until I find the correct terminal path..I am out of luck. Is something wrong with my computer??? ugh! Thanks again.

Copy and Paste this code in the Code field in the "Tools > Error Console" and click the Evaluate button to see the location of the profile folder.


alert(Components.classes["@mozilla.org/file/directory_service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIProperties).get("ProfD", Components.interfaces.nsIFile).path);

Okay, it gave me the location of the profile folder.
