Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

I can reproduce this bug multiple times, it just takes time.
I'm running Lucid Lynx LTS ubuntu 32-bit.
I had my desktop effects set on Normal for a week or two...
Within the past few days, when Firefox is running, my title bar will vanish.
It will remain gone until I log out, restart, etc. Or if I change my desktop effects to None.
Hardware drivers: No proprietary drivers found.
ATi Raedeon xpress 200 onboard video
I still have access to Applications, Places, System.
If I open a terminal through applications, it will not allow me to type in it. However, I can copy/paste. PS2 keyboard, usb mouse.
Having desktop effects on None, I haven't come across the bug yet.
Any help would be appreciated, I can answer any question.

(Following step 2 in the guidelines...)
