The browser used to look similar to IE but now it has red, white, and blue
borders.  It is taking up almost the whole screen.  I can't type in websites to
visit and everything is just a bunch of sections of bordered boxes. The borders
take up so much room that I can't even see the drop down menus (which are all in
a different setup) because I can't scroll down to see options.  I want my
browzer to look normal again.  I don't know if it is some sort of skin but I
uninstalled Mozilla and re-installed it twice and it justs keeps showing up like

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce: browzer
2.there it is

Actual Results:  
the browser is still all weird

Expected Results:  
I want the default them but it keeps saying either classic or modern.  Whichever
one I choose just leaves the browser the same.  

It says I have downloaded a modern theme but I didn't.  I tried to download the
All American theme after uninstalling and reinstalling hoping to change the view
but it didn't work.  It doesn't give me the option to view the browser in that
when I go to themes.

Sounds like you've accidentally activated XUL debug mode in preferences.
If it is hard to turn it off again in preferences: Quit mozilla (and fastload) -
search for this string in prefs.js (located in your profile directory)


If it is there: Edit the file in wordpad. Remove the whole line where that
string is. (Mozilla must NOT be running while you edit prefs.js). Save and
restart Mozilla. Any change?
> debug.disable_xul_cache

rkaa means "".  And yes, it sounds like you enabled this debug
preference (or installed an extension that enabled it)...

I got your emails, but I don't know what I am supposed to do.  Please let me 
know if I am to reply to you or just keep reading the emails till the browser 
if fixed.
You're to do what comment 1 said, except the preference you need to remove from
your prefs.js file is called

I can't seem to get into my profile directory
I'm sorry, but this is not a help system... Please see the forums on or the #mozillazine channel on irc:// for
help with that sort of thing...
