I am having a problem with Odoo 8 app interface to show full height after logging in successfully. I tried it in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera, they all show the same thing; but shows well in Internet Explorer.

See image link below.






@Ankit, my Google Chrome Version is (Version 40.0.2214.94 m), firefox version is 35.0.1, opera version is 27.0. All the browsers with the version quoted are all updated broswers in my windows pc (Win 8)

You've had a module install/update go wrong. I've had this happen a number of times while developing website theme modules on Odoo 8.0.

I'd recommend making a full backup of your database and Odoo install files, and then run the following from a command line:

cd /opt/odoo/odoo-server/
sudo git pull
sudo su odoo
./openerp-server --update=all -c /etc/odoo-server.conf

and allow this process to run for quite some time to allow it to upgrade all of your modules in your database. I'd also recommend removing modules one by one until you find the cause of the issue.

Make sure you backup first!!
