Firefox will not open links when I click on them! How can I fix this?

When I click onto a web page and there are links to something , Firefox will not open them. No matter what page I am on.

Do you have that problem when running in the Firefox SafeMode?

Don't select anything right now, just use "Continue in SafeMode."

No, your problem more than likely is with something you added to Firefox, like an addon. Please read the second support article that I hyperlinked.
