It is possible that the screen is too wide or too high and that the scroll bars fall off. Open the system menu via Alt+Space and see if you can resize that window. If that works then close Firefox to save that setting. See also http://kb.mozillazine.org/Resizing_oversize_window


Window sizes and positions are stored in localstore.rdf in the Profile Folder.
