blank bar above firefox

Posted

I am using the newest version of firefox, I have no idea on what key I accidentally pressed. My address bar is now very fat, and there's a blank space above the tabs, and that bar is not the title bar. I have tried installing themes but that didn't do the trick. I am using windows 7.

How do I restore firefox to its default view?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

Maybe check the Density and Drag Space setting on the Customize palette page.

no it didn't helped. Could any settings on windows (for example some windows hot key) create this effect?

Sorry cor-el,

None of any of the posted fixes for this problem, including this post, have worked for me. A fraction of these related postings , which give suggestions that do not work for me, follows:

Although the latter regards MACs, the PC interpretation does not work.
