I have a classic asp page, that is basically JQuery with straight HTML, and I can't use any of the page elements. Unable to click and type in textboxes, drop-down boxes don't drop down, nothing. I have version 24.0, works perfectly in IE7, 8, 9 as well as Google Chrome. Why is firefox always the browser that I get issues with? I have tried all of the install/uninstall, turn off hardware acceleration, disabled and updated all plugins, restarts etc. etc., but none of these solutions work. I can go to other pages that work just fine with drop-downs and textbox menus but not my own. There are no styling issues that I could find in the inspector, no position:absolute issues or anything else. What can be causing this?

Do you have any developer add-on, try firefox in safe mode.

Give the link to the page if possible so some over here can have a look.

There are no add-ons, i have done the safe mode stuff as well as clean install of the browser to no avail. The site is a login only password protected site and i am not at liberty to give out login credentials, especially over a public forum, i have PMed you a temp login you can try with.

I have the exact same problem, and I've tried all of the above fixes too..nothing works. I cannot edit any of the textboxes or dropdowns on my webpage (an ASP.NET app using HTML, JavaScript and some JQuery), which renders my page practically useless. It works perfectly in IE and Chrome, and used to work in Firefox up to at least 2 months ago. Would really appreciate some help!

one thing to check is make sure that you've updated your JQuery.css file to match the version of JQuery and JQuery UI that you are using. That solved my issue.

I have updated to the latest versions of JQuery, JQuery UI and jquery-ui.css. Still have the problem

Fixed the problem - it turned out to be due to a feature of JQuery Sortable which I was using, which was disabling all the input elements. Thanks for your prompt response!

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over the problem.
