In all the previous versions of firefox I've had no issues in the drop down menu when left-clicking to either open a link in a new tab or save highlighted text or even saving an image to my drive. However now with the latest update (20.0.1) I have come across something which disturbs me by the full length of the drop down menu (too long, too much stuff on it) and half the options are disabled, which makes it harder for me to surf the web as I am used to doing. I have taken a screenshot of my issue . I hope it will help. Also, that my OS is windows 7. http://www.darkworlds.se/images/other/firefx20bug.jpg

This is a problem related to having an outdated version of Firebug, most likely you've disabled automatic update of addons.

The easiest way to fix this is to go to Tools -> Addons, and then clicking the wheel button up near the search field. From there you choose "Check for Updates" and unless you need specific versions of an addon, choose the "Update addons automatically" while you are there.

You will most likely have to update Firebug twice, as it updates to an outdated version, and from there to the newest one.

This is the solution I stumbled upon as I had the same exact problem, where I tried creating a new profile and the likes.
