original problem was adding up/down control buttons for navagation toolbar.
current problem foud when trying to change settins.

i have a HPmini with a  small display screen.  It has windows 7.
When firefox form for changing navigation settings is used on my small screen part of it (including save button) is displayed in the transparent windows support bar at the bottom of the screen.  the firefox control buttons cannot be engaed because of modal control of windows transparent section.  the firefox setting form is display oversize and does not have up/down scroll bar that can be used.  i cannot change settings.

suggested fix:  have firefox recognize tranparent support bar size which contains (windows explorer, internet explorer, etc.)  if firefox form intrudes in this area include scroll bars to scroll form featuressupport bar area  out of this area.  simply avoid the windows support bar area.  

please update firefox soon wit a fix for this windows 7 unique bug.

navagation settings should bit have been saved.
