    <font face="comic sans ms" color="#577ac6">Hello rudeler. :)
    I think that's about as small as a window can go, without disappearing altogether.
    Try hovering your mouse on the edges of the small bar.
    When your pointer becomes a double arrow, left-click and drag the window to a larger size.
    This works on all edges.</font>

    this solution made the bar longer, but didn't solve the problem. example: when i clicked on the e-mail thread regarding your original reply, instead of the page coming up all i get is that bar and i have to click maximize for the page to appear.

    Try it again and this time drag the window to the full size of the screen. Dont use the maximize button.
