The red close window button doesn't work. I have to right-click on the taskbar icon to close firefox.

Posted

the red "X" to close the firefox window stopped working. It just flashes when I click it, and nothing happens. I have to right click the firefox icon in the taskbar to close firefox now.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== just a few days ago, I have no idea why. I haven't made any recent changes to firefox.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems
