After reading some Mozilla documentation, the latter of these settings
seem to affect what is visible in the first one, so you could try to
toggle it and see if it changes.

But the dialog you get above does not jive with what is in later
Firefox versions, so I'm guessing you are using Iceweasel. In that
case, all bets are off, and I can't help you. You really should check
the mailing list thread I referenced earlier, as it contained a lot of
useful info, and will help you more than an Ubuntu list can.

You could also try to download the latest, plain Firefox from Mozilla,
and see if you have better luck with that. Any documentation you can
find will at least be more likely to help.

It updated today here on Wily, so there should be one in Debian also.
