In selecting OPTIONS, the page opens with STARTUP/DOWNLOADS/TABS. However, nothing I "click" on with open any of these functions, nor am I able to change the General/Search/Content/etc on the left side of the screen. Any suggestions??

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window
