I don´t know what I did...
I tried to install some Mozilla Dictionary extension...that´s the only
thing I can think of...but it did NOT successfully install.
Anyway, since then, the top navigation bar (with: file edit view, etc.)
is basically gone. I mean, I can see where it is supposed to
be, but it is way tiny, and none of the menus are visible or accessible.

I would get better performance with
Konq and Kmail, but I don´t like Kmail (I like Konq, I´ll admit).
So...anyway, I´m not here to start a browser war...I just want my
beloved Mozilla working functionally, or, Seamonkey to not have a 2 inch
status bar. Tanto faz.
