Firefox got all messed up

Postby babujbf on Thu Apr 09, 2009 1:03 pm

I don't know why but firefox got all weird I no longer have the toolbar to put in a web address, the minimize and close window buttons are not visible and it also makes my linux mint menu toolbar no longer visible. How do I fix this?

Edit: nevermind, I didn't read the post closely enough. Do you still have the main toolbar (File, Edit, etc)?

Click on View -> Toolbars. Are all of the toolbars checked? (Most importantly Navigation)

ok thanks that fixed the toolbar... it appeared to be a weird distorted full screen thing, cause I clicked f11 to go full screen and it covered all the screen then I clicked again and it went back to normal.
EDIT:

This sucks I gotta switch to full screen and then back to get it to work normally. Any Ideas?

I used to have this problem as well. A work-around to go to CompizConfig Settings Manager -> Utility -> Workarounds, then disable Legacy Fullscreen Support.

You should be able to configure that through the wireless network icon in your system tray (assuming you still have a notification area). When you connect there should be an option to save the password.

For the Screenlets, you need to use the Screenlet Manager. Click on whichever Screenlet you want, then there should be a box that you check that says "Start at login" or something along those lines. You have to do that for each Screenlet individually.

Hope that helps.

Edit: The exact text of the button you're looking for in the manager is "Auto start on login"

Ah, I didn't know it was a keyring problem. This should solve that: http://maketecheasier.com/auto-unlock-k ... 2009/03/14

(Disregard that the tutorial is for Ubuntu Intrepid, it should work for your system)
