I can't get the full window with tabs, or other controls. I have to use control-alt-delete to close the window.

After loading on a link to KnightNews, all of the header stuff disappeared - Firefox box, minimize button, delete button, and the only way to get out of the KnightNews was control-alt-delete. I now find that any time i use Firefox, I have the same problem. I have deleted the program, reinstalled it, done a system restore, all to no avail. When I click on Firefox to open it, the full window appears briefly, then the whole screen is filled with the opening Firefox page. Clicking on a program in the history box brings it up, but it's the same scenario - control-alt-delete is the only way to get out. I also was not able to open the Troubleshooting Information which was listed below on this page.

'''Try the Firefox SafeMode''' to see how it works there. <br />
''A troubleshooting mode, which disables most Add-ons.'' <br />

* You can open the Firefox 15.0+ SafeMode by holding the '''Shft''' key when you use the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
''To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before using the Firefox shortcut (without the Shft key) to open it again.''
'''''If it is good in the Firefox SafeMode''''', your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. <br />

Or it might be caused by Hardware Acceleration.
