Windows 7: Firefox confusion...

Firefox confusion...


My Windows 7 had a little wobble the other night and switched itself from Aero to Basic. I did the "type areo into the search box " thing and it righted itself but now my Firefox looks odd!

I noticed, before the 'wobble' that the forwards/back buttons had changed from blue to green which I hadn't noticed before.
They've now gone back to blue and look smaller!
Also I have a thick black outline around the tabs and the currently selected tab is now shaded black which I don't particularly like!

Also if I open the tools-options box it's mostly solid black!

I'll include some screenshots to illustrate all this! The green/blue button thing intrigues me though!

All I want to know is how to set it back to the way it was!

If I change the Windows theme to 'basic' then Firefox looks as it did before, but then I have the rather ugly basic windows for everything else!

It's most puzzling, any help would be welcome!

Ahhh, I must have played about with the advanced settings when it went bandy!
Just found this handy article and reset everything manually to default and it looks better now!

Although I'm still wondering where that big green back button came from and went to!
