Firefox 3.6 anomaly


This happened once before, but then went away...

Firefox has taken the whole screen and has no controls top right to close or resize the window. Also it hides the panel at the bottom.
Even stranger: whenever hovering over something with a tooltip, the whole screen goes black for a fraction of a second. Otherwise it seems to operate normally.
Not cured by:
restarting FF
rebooting
re-installing FF

FF 3.6.2
Arch + KDE 4.4
HP 8510W laptop / NVidia Quadro 570 with reasonable current NVidia official driver.

No issues with other applications.

For Mozilla: bad dog for making this "stick" after FF restart, reboot, and even after re-install------BAAAAD DOG!!!

Thank You, David.

It probably saves the fullscreen state in a config file, which is obviously not changed by closing Firefox, rebooting, and probably even reinstalling Firefox.

And in case you didn't know, the title bar of the window is not created by the program.
