Why do the minimize, maximize, & close buttons in the top right corner disappear (turn to a black void) unless FF is maximized?

I am running Windows 7 on my new laptop. When I bought it back in August, I installed Firefox version 5 (I think) Now that I have updated to version 6, the minimize, maximize, & close buttons in the top right corner disappear when the window is not maximized. It becomes a black space where the buttons should be.

Hi Kossa,
You can also check if the issue occurs in
Clean Boot. If the issue disappears in the Clean Boot environment, you can continue to narrow down which entry is causing the issue.
Besides, uninstall it and re-download
a fresh copy of FireFox to check the result. If the issue still exists, create a new user account to see if it occurs.
If the issue persists, you can contact Mozilla Support directly and use Internet Explorer (IE) during the time.

  • How do I make the minimize/maximize/close buttons smaller?

    I want to make the minimize - maximize - close/exit buttons on the right smaller. What's the css code to do this?

    Solved it.
    In Windows 7:
    Right click desktop >
    Go to Personalize >
    Click WIndow Color (Custom) >
    Click Advanced Appearance Settings >
    Find Caption Buttons and change the size to your liking!
    I like it at size 18, as it doesn't take up as much space.

  • I don't like the look of the new firefox and I treid to change the theme by clicking on an Add-on, but nothing happened and nothing changed. Also I can't see the minimize and close buttons on the corner of my screen.

    the Add-on didn't work to download. It was the Qute theme to make firefox look more like an older version.
    Also the top right corner of my screen is black and I can't see the minimize or restore or close button. they work by me guessing where to place my mouse, but the buttons can't be seen.

    To downgrade to Firefox 3.6 first uninstall Firefox 4, but do not select the option to "Remove my Firefox personal data". If you select that option it will delete your bookmarks, passwords and other user data.
    You can then install the latest version of Firefox 3.6 available from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html - it will automatically use your current bookmarks, passwords etc.
    To avoid possible problems with downgrading, I recommend going to your profile folder and deleting the following files if they exist - extensions.cache, extensions.rdf, extensions.ini, extensions.sqlite and localstore.rdf. Deleting these files will force Firefox to rebuild the list of installed extensions, checking their compatibility, and reset toolbar customizations.
    For details of how to find your profile folder see https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Profiles

  • Is there a way i can move Minimize/Maximize/Close buttons to the left of Firefox v30?

    I would prefer them on the left side of Firefox instead of the right side.
    I'm using windows 7, Firefox v30

    Hmm, it worked on a "Basic" Windows 7 theme, but I can't see a way to move the buttons on an "Aero" theme.

  • Why is the Firefox button causing my minimize/maximize/close buttons to seperate?

    I recently updated to FF5 and I noticed that my minimize/maximize/close buttons on the title bar have a separation between them and the only way to make it return to normal is to start in safe mode. It is not caused by an extension alone but by the FF button. Is anyone else having this problem? It is kind of annoying.

  • FF29: Page title bar MIA with minimize/maximize/close buttons gone! How do I get it back?

    FF29 on win7: the minimize/maximize/close buttons are MIA, as is the page title bar. I've restored 28 because Australis is driving me nuts!

    You should not have to restore the Firefox 28 release. There is a solution: Classic Theme Restorer. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/

  • Anyone have the problem of iPhone6 momentarily flashing brilliant white in top right corner when turn on?

    Anyone have the problem of iPhone6 momentarily flashing brilliant white in top right corner when turned on?

    Here's an example of what I'm talking about:
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2Sq_qEpEM6jMVQ4S2diVnFtNHM/edit?usp=sharing
    Again, this only happens for certain video content available in the iTunes store. This was taken from Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode season 5, episode 16 "The Lawless". More recently I've noticed this happening to iTunes store videos in iTunes for Windows (v11.1, Windows 7 SP 1), my iPad mini (iOS 7.0.3), and my iPod Touch 4th gen (iOS 6.1.3), in addition to my Apple TV (v6.0 software). Sometimes it occurs during the whole episode, sometimes just for a few seconds. It's also not consistent across devices; some will the play the same video with the green dot and some without. I'm at a loss to explain it given this lack of consistency, so any help would be appreciated.

  • Unexpected performance of Firefox in Windows 7, namely minimize/maximize/close buttons not working and unable to move/resize window.

    I have been using FF for a while now. My main computer was WinXP-32, though I recently bought a new laptop with Win7-64 installed. This problem was never experienced on my WinXP machine.
    Brief description of problem:
    After a time of having FF up and running, the minimize/maximize/restore/close buttons in the top-right no longer work as expected and, if not maximised, I cannot move the window around my desktop nor resize the browser window. When clicked, the buttons will
    rapidly flash on and off continuously without appearing to perform any noticeable function other than temporarily hogging CPU cycles. I've found that clicking (sometimes double clicking) in the main browser window then mousing over the buttons again seems
    to stop them flashing, though does nothing else.
    To minimize/maximize/restore/move/close the window(s), I have to right-click on the relevant tab in my taskbar and pick the desired option. Occasionally, however, even this doesn't work and the right-click menu will disappear as soon as I move the mouse
    over it after right-clicking. 'Show desktop' is a temporary fix for minimising windows and 'ALT + F4' or 'CTRL + W' for closing windows or tabs. This isn't satisfactory and to move or resize a window, I have to close the window in question (sometimes all other
    windows too), reopen it and do what I need to do, though sometimes even this is only a very short fix. If I have to close all the windows, FF will sometimes keep running for a while afterwards, even though no windows are actually open - simply ending the process
    via the windows task manager will fix this though is only a work-around, not a fix.
    One thing I have noticed is that if I manage to move the browser window (when not maximised), for a short period afterwards I can often resize the window successfully. This is more likely to occur if the browser window is not flush with the edge of my screen
    once moved.
    I've tried to include as much information as I can - most of which was determined after several minutes/hours of playing around with different scenarios, trying to manually reproduce particular problems or simply through sheer luck of happening to click
    in the right place at the right time! I hope there is a reasonably fix for this at some point in the not-too-distant future.
    I noticed in some of the threads at another site where people have voiced problems similar to mine, that a link to 'ObjectDock' was discovered in some cases. I do have 'ObjectDock 1.90 Plus' installed on my machine and use it in many ways and so decided
    to see if I could find a connection between the two. I have uninstalled, tested, and reinstalled both programs in a multitude of ways, though could find no conclusive correlation between having both bits of software running or installed at the same time and
    the problems I am experiencing. In my case, at least, this does not appear to be an answer.
    Also, in another thread on this site, someone suggested there might be a link with AVG Anti-Virus Free (I have version 9.0.819) though I've tried uninstalling it and its various add-ons in several different combinations, with no noticeable improvement.
    Sorry for such a long question... If you need to know anything more, just let me know!

  • How to add a Button on SUS top-right corner ( Near Log off button)

    Hi Experts,
    It's a bit urgent for me. Please give your valuable suggestions to achieve below scenario.
    My requirement is :-
    adding a button on top-right corner(near log-off button) of SUS screen.
    when that button is clicked, a pop-up should appear, which shows a list of supplier IDs.
    SUS user selects a supplier ID from this list.
    Subsequently, PO, Invoices and other documents should be filtered out based on supplier ID selected.
    Request you to help me how to achieve it technically. Thanks a lot.
    Regards,
    Ratnesh

    Hi,
    is that button really necessary or is it enough to achieve the functionality you are describing?
    If the latter, this is standard SUS.
    When you give that user the SUS admin purchaser role that user gets a 'find supplier' link in the menu at the left hand side.
    In here you can search for the correct supplier (or just press search without parameters and you get a list. When you click on one of the results the user will act as if it is an employee of that supplier. Including only displaying documents of that supplier.
    Regards,
    Robin

  • Menu UID for Minimize/Maximize/Close buttons

    I'm trying to disable or restrict the buttons in the toolbar at the top of marketing documents.  Specifically, I'm trying to disable the 'X' button in the top right of marketing documents to prevent users from closing the document in this way.  I was able to restrict the 'Close' function found under File->Close because it clearly has Menu UID 514.  However, this didn't affect the 'X' button.  Do these buttons have their own Menu UID's?  Are they on the same form as the marketing document itself?  Thanks for the help.

    Hi Brian,
    With regards to the X box, I don't think it has a UID and it doesn't trigger a menu option. The screen can also be closed by pressing Escape or Ctrl-F4 and they also don't trigger a menu option (although they do trigger a KeyDownevent).
    When I've needed to do this then I've added a hidden UserDataSource field to the window which takes a simple Y/N value with the default being N when the form is loaded. I then put a check in the Form Close event (when before action is true) and if the value in this user defined field is N then I set bubbleevent to false and the form won't close. Only if the user chooses one of the methods I want them to use (Ie clicking on the OK button when the form is in OK mode or clicking on the Cancel button) do I set the user datasource to Y which allows the form to close (the press event of the buttons occurs first before the form closes so the value in the user datasource is set to Y just before the form close event checks its value).
    Kind Regards,
    Owen

  • HT204365 when i am in the Top Charts "store", the categories drop down list, next to the library button at the top right corner disappeared..how do i get it back?

    on my ipad, in the ibooks app, the categories icon disappeared next to the library icon in the top left hand corner, when i go the the top charts in the store..how do i get it back?

    Try 1 of 2 things.
    Double tap the Home Button on the iPad > you should see the Dock tray with your apps in > hold on iBooks until you see the app jiggleing with a red circle and white line > tap that red circle > re-opoen iBooks.
    If that does not work repeat above but do not open iBooks after you close it, now power off your iPad and turn it back on. You can power it off by holding the power button on top of the device for about 5-10 seconds.

  • Minimize, Maximize, Close Buttons are no Longer Displayed

    I just downloaded Mac OS 10.4.5, and iTunes 6.0.3, when I minimize the window to sit in the corner of my screen, the Close, Minimize, and Maximize buttons are now just white circles, instead of the standard red, yellow, and green.
    This is really annoying. Has anyone experienced this? If so, how do I fix this?
    None of these issues occurred before downloading Mac os 10.4.5.

  • Minimize/Maximize//Close buttons, i need to disable them

    I tried everything, installed ChromeEdit plus and inserted the code i found on this forum and nothing happened. I have firefox mozilla 18 at the moment and windows 7. And i didn't find UserChrome.css and UserContent.css file but this ChromeEdit tool creates those 2 files, so i looked into profile files and in chrome folder this 2 files are empty so i just need the right code.

    I managed to install DOMi, i also managed to find a node by inspecting with clicks. But when i clicked on close or maximize button nothing happened.
    When i click somewhere else(bookmarks or letters) its shows me a code, i can cut,edit this. But when i click on close, maximize, minimize buttons nothing happens.
