There is a setting under your Avatar Preferences in Phoenix to fix this however, in most cases it's the animation itself. All animate from a position in the center of your avatar (the stomach) and if the pose is set up for a smaller avatar, you will sink into the ground.

Yes, and Cool Viewer has a camera control for Z height. But not clear about Firestorm etc, so I was wondering if there is a "global" debug setting

Unfortunately there's no easy way to offset a ground sit animation. If you adjust your Z position as others have suggested, you will need to un-adjust it again the moment you stand up or it will leave you floating over the ground. The best suggestion would probably be to grab one of those "Open Collar" slave collars and remove the z offset animations from it, find one that works well when played in conjunction with your ground sit animation. 

Unfortunately, this will only work if your sit animation is not a higher priority than the Z offset animations.

The problem is due to a combination of SL's scale issues with poorly made ground sit poses. 

Some animators simply create the ground sit pose without understanding how the avatar's in-world placement is affected.

More often, however, the problem is due to the huge variety of avatar sizes possible in SL. Most avatars are about 7' tall. If your avatar is shorter, even a little, than the size avatar the ground sit pose is made for, it will place you in the ground. instead of on top of it. The "Average" avatar can be anywhere from 6'5" to 8'10", the vast majority of avatars fall in this range, and most people have absolutely no idea how large their avatar is, adding to the confusion.

I am seeing the opposite; short avatars in the ground etc.

Do you know where the Firestorm beta Z offset is in it?
