Firefox Not Playing Nice With Compiz

For anyone who has Nvidia Graphics along with Compiz running and your Firefox Menu's disappear along with your menu bar there is a solution. Simply go here and follow these instructions. {System->Preferences->compizconfig_settings_manager->utility->workarounds->Uncheck-legacy fullscreen support}
That should fix it right there on the spot. That is the location for compiz in Ubuntu other distro's may be slightly different, Mandriva has compiz config under tools.

Make Yourself Count

Not sure how many know of this page but if you are using Linux you should log on and get counted its a great idea.
I finally got my mom to get away from Micro$&#t and have her using Mandriva, she wouldnt let me install Thunderbird for her she insisted she do it herself telling me thats the only way she would learn and she proudly let me know she set it all up.
