Because I use a custom Windows 7 theme with large fonts, I sometimes encounter some sites such as my banking iste where dialogs like a confirmation screen of entered data is stuck half off to the left side and its unmovable. Even if I zoom out all the way it is still stuck half out of the viewing area.

Is there possibly a fix, a tweak or an add-on for this problem? Thanks.

If the dialog is an actual window, you could set links to open in a new tab, rather then in a window.
(No idea how to do that in FF. In SeaMonkey, its a simple GUI preference selection.)

That was a good idea so I checked the FF settings. I already have it set to open new windows in tabs and changed another setting there. No go.

The dialog is not a window from the looks of it. I don't know if its a popover or something else I am not familiar with. Pressing escape will close it.

Do you have a link where all of us can visit the problem site? ... or, is it after you've logged into it?...and we can't get into it then.

Yes its after I log into the U.S. Bank site and do business. I tried an experiment and changed Windows 7 settings to near unreadable for me, but just to test. The problem dialog was completely visible then. But not readable.
