The Firefox window has blown itself out of the screen area, which just 
means it has become a size bigger than what your screen can accommodate. 
Please try whether you can grab hold of any of the corners by moving the 
browser here and there. If you could, then just drag it to reduce the 
size and again drag it into your screen area. Then position it and 
resize the window as per your wish. Am not sure about pressing the 
maximize button again or whether you need to press the unmazimize button 
before trying this. It used to happen to me in Hardy but I haven't faced 
it with any window in Intrepid. You can also try turning off compiz if 
you're using it.
