Tool->Options->Privacy Panel - I cannot select privacy panel to check cookies enabled or not. I can select every other panel and the Privacy "button" darkens when I click on it but nothing happens, nothing changes below.

Firefox 3.6.12 on Windows Vista, Dell Laptop. Every Options panel opens up just fine but not privacy.

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

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

Question owner

Actually, I just rebooted and everything is ok. Haven't tried safe mode. I was about to re-download FF but everything is apparently ok.

The reason I came to check Options->Security was that a website was not remembering my settings. Still not doing that but I may come back. Thanks.
