Hi all, Super frustrating!! I have a few tabs open in Firefox, cant click the X to close them you have to really really be super accurate with the pointer to be able to click to close, same when I am trying to click on a tab bar, it wont move to another tab option unless I am really accurate and click on it right in the sweet spot, really annoying and only had this issue for the last couple days Latest update and running a Mac latest OSX Any help would be appreciated before I switch browsers again

Thank you

Hello!

I'm sorry but I'm not sure about Mac but for PC you can always use CTRL+W or CTRL+F4 to close a tab without having to click on the X icon. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-t...
