Firefox ignores single click and needs double click to a single click feature like a link, a bookmark, enter a text box, push a button

Firefox 7.0.1 on Win7 pro 64

Hi FF team & community,

sometimes FF 6/7 shows a VERY strange behaviour: while doing "normal" things on websites (click links, edit text boxes, scrolling, changing tabs) FF starts to ignore my single clicks. The only way to work is using double click instead of single click (i.e. for links, enter a textbos, changing tab, even for open a Firefox menu) for ALL actions!!!!!

A minute ago, the last example was on

 https://plus.google.com/circles/find 

while moving a contact to a "circle" - FF changes to only accepting double clicks. No error, no message.

I found this buggy behaviour on many different websites - simples sites and sites with complex functionality, too - in the last weeks since FF6+7 are current versions.

With my other two questions I'm getting the idea, that current FF releases contain more bugs than releases between FF1 to FF3.

I still have no idea why did FF team decided to touch keyboard patterns: - It is not design/features/etc. Eyes can adapt to anything, indeed, no problem but - This is in the essence how your fingers use software, that's a physical world. Hands definitely are MUCH more sensitive.

I would like to note that I have all three (IE, Chrome, FF) browsers installed, I used FF last few years, but a few months (or half a year?) ago they made that radical update which touched not eyes/brains, but hands. And that's a mess: - Home and End keys simply are not used now in FF :-/ (and earlier it was used for scrolling page in current tab) - PgDw and PgUp keys are used for going forward/back (!) in your tab - to switch tabs to the right you have to use Ctrl+Tab, and for back Ctrl+Shift+Tab

etc. etc.

To say that I was disappointed is to say nothing. I tried, week or so, to adapt to new tradition of keyboard use in FF, but I miserably failed. Then, ** for some other reason ** I ran Chrome. And since then I am Chrommed.... - PageUp and PageDown keys do work in Chrome for scrolling page - Home and End keys do work in Chrome for scrolling page - Ctrl+PgUp/PgDn - you switch tabs

People like me do NOT switch to Mac because (I work mostly in MS Office) there a bit different (really minor) keyboard shortcuts etc. etc.

I am stuck. Or they are some kind of Linux or whatever guys... And I even don't know how to give them feedback, and how to show them that there MANY people like me - we love FF but your change of keyboard shortcuts touched not brain/eyes, but our hands.

As I stated above, Firefox seems to getting more incompatible with the sites I use it mostly for with each new upgrade. AS a matter of fact, it is rapidly getting to the point where I will soon no longer be able to use the Mozilla Firefox browser. It simply does not process apps correctly at far too many web sites.

I used to be able to organize bookmarks. Now (after allowing several Firefox updates) "unsorted bookmarks" will only show me 1 or 2 bookmarks out of two or three hundred (on computer 1) and 3 out of about 50 (on computer 2). ALSO I went to the defaults/profile folder looking for my bookmarks - nothing there but an empty Chrome folder. So where is my bookmark folder, and the backups?
