Though every situation is different, the window that you will be looking at when you enter the Avid Film Composer looks something like the one below.

The picture on the left is called the Source Window. The picture on the right is the Record Window. The Timeline is below the Source/Record windows.

Though I've tried to accomodate other browsers THIS SITE IS DESIGNED FOR BEST USE WITH IE for the PC, SAFARI for the Mac, and FIREFOX for both the PC and the Mac. It also looks reasonably good on the iPhone. Lucked out on that!
