Firefox 3 starts strangely when launched [solved]


Recommended Posts



I have Mandriva 2009.


I have KDE 4 and KDE 3.5.10.


I use KDE 3.5.10 the most.



Today, I started my computer and chose to use KDE 3 from the KDM.


When KDE 3 started, I started Firefox 3.



However, Firefox 3 started in a strange fullscreen mode, as seen in my attached screenshot.


This problem happened again no matter how many times I started Firefox.



Then logged out of KDE 3 and into KDE 4, and started Firefox there, but the same problem happened.



Nothing similar happens when I start any other program.



Please help me fix this problem.



I'll be thankful for any help you can give me.

It also happens to me, strangely enough only with firefox, whenever I have the compiz window manager active. I have to press F11 2-3 times to get the window decorator back. Switching to the regular xfwm4 window manager also solves the issue.

Why it's happening just with firefox- I frankly don't know...
