Why are the drop-down menus in websites start "shaking" when opened?

Posted

I'm running Firefox 3.6.3 on Mac OS 10.6 and am having the following problem: Drop-down menus in websites (e.g. the one right below this field) behaving strangely. Every time I click on the arrow to open the drop-down options, the drop-down box with the options starts shaking like crazy, making it barely possible to select the desired option.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Since I installed Firefox

Thank you Morbus!

I disabled all of my addons and turned them on again one by one and found that the error was caused by the addon "Delicious Bookmarks 2.1.072"!

My problem was solved!

Thanks again!

Hello Hari.

You may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?
