Firefox has a strange start-up

Running Windows 7 32 bit and when I launch Firefox 13.0.1, for a split second, it has the appearance of 'aero peek' in that you can see through it before it turns to a 'normal' display. I have tried turning off 'aero peek' but it still does it. Once properly launched it works perfectly.

My lap top running the same version of Firefox behaves normally.

Any ideas?

I would be inclined to reinstall it to see if it reoccurs.

Sorry should have said I have already tried that:-(

Just tried loading older versions of Firefox but the result is the same - when it first launches it is in aero peek mode for a short time.

I have tried all sorts of things, including new graphics drivers but nothing seemed to work - until I moved the tabs to 'Tabs On Top'. It worked!! I've no idea why it should make a difference but it's ok now.

Thanks for your interest difarn.

No problem - glad it's sorted. Something new to learn every day.

Tried it and didn't like it. FF is still number one IMHO.

I agree Pine Man - am also giving Waterfox a try as I have a 64 bit PC. Very good so far.
