Here's the problem. I recently purchased a new laptop with Win 10. While setting it up, I found that, in Firefox 49, and Firefox only (I've also tested Edge, IE 11, Safari 5.1.7, and Chrome), the (arrow) mouse cursor does not change to a pointer (hand with pointing finger) cursor when hovering links, and single-clicking when hovering a link does nothing. However, if you hover a link and double-click it, it follows the link, although it also toggles full-screen (??).
Furthermore, it does not change to a text "I-beam" cursor when placed over text. Therefore, you cannot left-click and drag in text to select text either. If you try, it just drags the whole browser window. It seems to be dimly aware that it is text, since hovering a single word and double-clicking selects that word (and also toggles full-screen mode [??]). Hell, if you hover a word and triple-click, it even selects the whole paragraph, so it's clearly text-aware! But it seems unable to effect cursor changes and associated behaviors appropriately—pointer with single-click jump for links and I-beam with click-drag text select for text.
I have exhausted everything I can think of in searching for a resolution for this issue. Has anyone encountered this or any other similar mouse issues in Firefox in Win 10 (or at all,come to think of it)? Anyone have any suggestions of where I might look? I've tried looking at "about:config," but could see nothing obvious to address it. As a Web developer, I *really* do not want to even think about having to give up Firefox and its wealth of excellent developer's extensions and plugins. Any help gratefully accepted.
