Many websites I visit have on the first line of the web page a series of menu options which do not respond when I move the mouse to select any of the options. If I use full screen mode these buttons operate correctly. These buttons work correctly when I use IE or Chrome. I am running Windows 7 and this only happened in the last two weeks.

crash at start when opening bookmark: bookmark menu covers prompt for general password

Firefox asks for a general password using a drop-down window when opening a page with a log-on section, presumably for an autofill. (It's annoying and I wish I could get rid of it, but that's another story.) My home page has a log-on section, so the prompt appears. But, when I try to choose a bookmarked page, and if the prompt appears while I'm doing it, the bookmark menu covers the prompt. Nothing I do dispels the bookmark menu, whether clicking away from the menu, choosing the menu item, or even just typing the password. I have to restart, sometimes requiring 'force quit' from the Activity Monitor. I automatically clear my history when I quit. Seems obscure enought that it might be a bug...

When I click on "Firefox" orange button Top Left Corner of the program, The Menu disappears. Not just that menu but all menus. right click anything the popup menu disappears. Click on the bookmark tab and the popup menu disappears. I was hoping this would have been fixed in Version 9. I have completely uninstalled and re-installed This will happen with a completely fresh install of Firefox with no personal settings, bookmarks, extensions. I wish there was a way to post a video of what is happening.

I get this message each time I try to open a new tab from a link or whenever a page that needs to automatically refresh tries to do it: "firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." It gives me an option to allow individual tabs to open otherwise I just get a blank white page. I know this was a part of the internet options before I simply can't find it now with the new upgrade. Please help me, I can't upload videos to FB anymore.
