Firefox quirky, clicks too fast and highlights words I am not highlighting, and opens extra tabs I did not opoen.

Veröffentlicht

I can click on a link and a page opens twice! Or, opens an additional page I did not want to access,. Sometimes, if I try to stop a YouTube video the click on the stop button effects nothing. Very quirky lately.

What is on the additional pages? ads?

Is this with many websites, some, a few?

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration {web link} in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

I was not thinking its malware, because it started happening right after a Windows update. I uninstalled the update, but the problem has persisted.
