    I don't know... The only I can think of, that could result in having two extension folder is the sync feature. Maybe syncing between my Linux and the Windows machine at work... I don't know, I'm just guessing. Most important the global menu is working now!
    How do you sudo?

    if windows wont boot you can copy the folder from winfows' application data
    just change the top level structure for the linux equivalent
    C:\Documents and Settings\Virtual Box\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
    would be ~/.mozilla/firefox
    copy the *.default folder
    edit .mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini with the folder name
    if you have windows only addons like IE tab start firefox in safe mode (firefox -safe-mode)

    Moving from ubuntu 12.04 to Windows 7.
    I would use the backup extension FEBE, it will also backup your extensions. Put the backup in a separate directory and then transfer it to the new system in the best mannor for you. Install the FEBE extension on that computer and follow the prompts to recover/install.

    Thanks, I am going the other way around. I am switching this system to Windows 7 as the primary.

    This started happening on my system several months ago and has persisted across an OS update. Very annoying.

    You are using Ambience just for gtk widgets, not for window decoration. Try this command:

    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme Ambience
    If the window decoration doesn't change, then try Radiance instead:

    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme Radiance
    I am using Ubuntu 12.10 beta and for some reason I can't change the window decoration using Unity, just Gnome-Shell. However, even with Gnome-Shell, Ambience decoration is not working. Perhaps you are suffering the same issue.

    I tried ambience, no change, then radiance. It changed but eventually the top frame disappeared.

    Just to be clear, when you start Firefox, the top frame is there. Then while you're browsing, the frame disappears.

    When you say "eventually" is it a long time? Does it involve active browsing or does it go away even if Firefox is open but not being used?

    Can you correlate it with any action on your part? For example, in the two images you provided, the "normal" one doesn't have the find bar at the bottom. The problematic one does.

    Do you have other options when you log in? My thinking is that while Firefox will be the same, you may get an idea of whether this problem is related only to GNOME Classic or not. For example, do you have the GNOME Classic No Effects option? If so, what happens when you run Firefox?
