when I click the down arrow on the location bar to see the dropdown list of previous locations the list shows up but clicking on a link does not bring up the selected web site, also some of the sites on the list have garbled information ie: title of one page, address of another

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.

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
