Why does the links on the Bing homepage not work after Updates from Firefox 17 to Firefox 18?
The hyperlinks on the Bing homepage do not work. When I move the mouse over the links to click on them; the links are neither highlighted nor when I click on the links do they activate. I can refresh the page and quickly click on a link but if I do not click fast enough the links will not work again.
I have tried clicking a link on the Bing homepage in IE9 and they work fine. So, I contacted Microsoft assuming it had something to do with Bin. However after trying the suggestion offered by Microsoft the they suggested I contact Firefox to fix this problem as it may be a problem on your end. I don't care who's end this problem lies I just want to be able to run Firefox and use it's services without this problem as Bing and Firefox are the two programs I have chosen to work with. I am not a fan of IE so please fix this.

I was able to fix the problem by resetting the Firefox page.
Thanks for the advice.
