A very strange thing has just happened! I have lost the border round Firefox? It's not in full screen mode either. The only thing I did last night was, I installed Kmess, which is for my hotmail contacts. I am using Gnome desktop and Kmess is for KDE I know the apps should work OK but it is the only thing I have done. I will remove Kmess and see what happens.
