Problem with Firefox

Postby jacatone on Tue Feb 17, 2009 11:59 pm

For some strange reason Firefox 3 now covers up my screen completely. It covers the Menu taskbar, and I don't see the minimize/close icons on the right. This so typical of Linux. It starts to fail within a short period of time. Anyway, anyone know how I fix this besides using SeaMonkey? Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You are sure there is no full screen turned on (F11)? That is the obvious solution but perhaps you could try an update if its old.

Did you inadvertently select Full Screen? I have done that a couple times.

For me pressing F11 twice while in Firefox only worked for a short time.

If you are using Felicia, try the following: Exit Firefox. In Mint menu under Applications select Preferences > Compizconfig Setting Manager > Utility > click on the word Workarounds > this will bring up a new dialogue box. Remove the check mark at Legacy Full Screen Support. Exit.

I had a similar prob, ie, taskbar would disappear as soon as you clicked an online link including your e-mail box and Radar's solution worked. Grateful thanks.

Also, in case anybody is interested, I found that if you right click over an individual icon in the taskbar, you can move it to left or right of the taskbar by right-clicking on the mouse upon which you will see a clenched-fist symbol. Simply drag the clench-fist symbol to your desired position then left-click the mouse to fix it there. Don't forget to relock the taskbar afterwards.
