This issue can be caused by an extension that isn't working properly.

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

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

Thank you for your help. I tried all you suggested and everything that is listed in trouble shooting (have reset the tool bars etc.) and am still having the same issue?
