Try deleting the cache associated with Safari.
Go to ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db
Move that Cache.db file to the Trash.
Relaunch Safari to test. If that didn't help go back to ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari
Move the Webpage Previews folder to the Trash.
Quit then relaunch Safari to test.

Thanks very much for your quick reply. I deleted Cache.db in users/~~/library/caches/com.apple.safari/cache.db as you mentioned, and restarted safari, but it does not work.

Did you delete the Webpage Previews folder as I mentioned ?

Maybe an extension or plugin issues...
From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Extensions tab. If you have any installed, turn that OFF, quit then relaunch Safari to test.
If it's not an extensions issue, back to the menu bar click Safari > Preferences > Security.
Deselect: Enable plug ins. Quit then relaunch Safari to test.
If that helped, then you have one or more Safari add ons causing this.
Follow the instructions for troubleshooting plugins here > Safari: Unsupported third-party add-ons may cause Safari to unexpectedly quit or have performance issues
If it's not a plugin issue, go to ~/Library/Preferences. Move the com.apple.Safari.plist file from the Preferences folder to the Desktop.
Quit then relaunch Safari to test. If that helped, move the .pilst file to the Trash. If not, move it back to the Preferences folder.

I did all you suggested. But the problem remains.
I find another interesting thing: for very very few webpages it can display in full height, like "http://store.apple.com/us", see below
the rest webpages remain displaying in half height of the window:

Try Safari in another user account. If you see the same problem there, that can be an indication the startup disk needs repairing or the Mac OS X reinstalled.
You need to use Lion Recovery for that.

Same thing to other accounts. I found this problem long time ago, may be from the first time I used this laptop (MacBook Pro Mid 2010 i5). At first I thought this was normal and did not care about it. Do you think it is caused by the disk or Mac OS issues, since the problem exits when the laptop was new.

I just installed Safari for PC in my desktop to test it. Same thing happens there: cover flow only displays half height. So I guess this is not a issue with my laptop. It is something related to Safari App itself. Stilll, thanks you very much for your help

The image displayed in Safari cover flow looks like it corresponds to what was displayed in the browser when the snapshot was captured. I was able to get a better cover flow image by deleting the bookmark and clearing the cache, then lengthening the browser window and re-visiting the page.

I've had this problem for a long, long time (Since at least Safari 4). Nothing seems to fix it, and it's a bummer because it honestly makes the bookmark coverflow feature less usefull.

Thought I'd update the thread-
I posted this in the apple bug reporter (required me to get a developer account, which is really strange), but I don't think we'll see any solution. I noticed that many, many sites cannot be screencapped. The secured sites (email, amazon) don't work, of course. But other sites like Boing Boing won't ever work either - which doesn't make sense. Go figure.
This seems like a semi-broken feature that will probably see an update in the future, or be removed entirely.
