I am using Windows 7 Ultimate on Dell 640m, the problem I am having is when I use Firefox and go to hibernate my computer, and I go to resume, the screen to enter my password has shrunk in size, I can type my password, then my desktop also is smaller. I have updated my drivers, used Superspyware and Malwarebytes with nothing found, uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it again, with no luck. I noticed when this started that an add-on called facemoods installed, but I uninstalled that. Firefox is locking my screen resolution for some reason. When I reboot, and not running Firefox, I can check my resolution and can change it, but when I run FF and Hibernate and resume, I can't change the screen resolution, I hope someone had an idea what to do. I have asked FF support with no luck and MS too with no luck either.

Hi dean,

Check your Firefox settings..Close Firefox..Right click on the Firefox icon..click properties then the compatibility tab..try clearing any settings there..then restart Firefox

Hi dean bahamas,
