3.6.7 tab problem

Posted

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

My browser was automatically updated to version 3.6.7. After this update, I am unable to switch between tabs by clicking on them. I can close whichever tab I wish, but this is a major inconvenience to have to close a tab I wish to continue browsing.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

updated to version 3.6.7

Chosen solution

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

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears. You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions. You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

  • If you have many extensions then you can first enable half of the extensions to test which half has the problem. Continue to divide the bad half that still has the issue until you find which one is causing it.
