Why does my left click button do nothing in Firefox 5?

Veröffentlicht

My left click button on my mouse is ineffective in Firefox 5.0, therefore I cannot use Firefox 5.0.

Try the Firefox SafeMode.
A troubleshooting mode, which disables most Add-ons.
(If you're not using it, switch to the Default Theme.)

  1. You can open the Firefox 4/5/6/7 SafeMode by holding the Shft key when you use the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
  2. Or use the Help menu item, click on Restart with Add-ons Disabled... while Firefox is running.

To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before using the Firefox shortcut (without the Shft key) to open it again.

If it is good in the Firefox SafeMode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one.

Sorry for asking but I presume your mouse is working with IE and your mail program. Lists of add-ons are in Help>Troubleshooting Information.

But first work through the-edmeister's answer.

I don't see how you could follow the-edmeister's instructions without a left click? Does it work occasionally?

It is not clear from your answer whether you actually tried Internet Explorer. It is difficult with left click not working but go to your IE Desktop icon and right click on it, then try to left click on Open and see if you can get that started.

I also presume you've looked through the "Mouse" entry in the Control Panel. Mine says my mouse is working correctly. Do you have an old mouse or can you borrow one? I think there is a strong chance you have a mouse problem not a Firefox problem.

My mouse works perfectly everywhere except in Firefox 5 and it is a relatively new Microsoft USB optical mouse. The left button does not work anywhere in Firefox 5.

I think you are on the wrong path here. There is nothing wrong with my mouse settings. The mouse works perfectly everywhere except inside Firefox 5.

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.
See Basic Troubleshooting: Make a new profile:

There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions & Plugins" in case there are still problems.

If that new profile works then you can transfer some files from the old profile to that new profile (be careful not to copy corrupted files)
