I am running Firefox on Linux Mint 13 Maya. For some reason many of the buttons in Firefox (not on webpages but in FireFox itself) do not respond to mouse clicks. I have tried Safemode, refresh/restore and uninstall/reboot/reinstall. Still the same problem. I have a hard time accessing settings because the menu button is one of those that "depresses" but does not respond to any mouse clicks. Also I can not activate or deactivate plugins because of the same problem.

running Win7; firefox 38.0.1. have used 2 programs to remove dregol:Control Panel & Advanced Uninstaller Pro. Used regedit to remove all references to dregol. It does not appear in Chrome. Removed it as default search. However, it's still there as a 1 click search engine and occasionally used as the search engine.

Firefox within the last month has started freezing every time on a Windows 7 laptop every time I try one of the above actions. I have tried "refresh Firefox", safe mode, uninstall/reinstall, nothing seems to help. Can't open prefs so I have not been able to turn off hardware acceleration. However, I was able to set up Firefox Sync which let me get my bookmarks to another PC and it looks like make setting changes on that PC affects this copy of FF so I <think> I've also tried turning off hardware acceleration. Nothing works. Especially frustrating that the options freeze. Firefox has worked for years on the affected laptop, is there anything I can do except give up and switch to another browser?

Lost the hard drive on laptop. Trying to recover from backups. The profiles in the backup has bookmark backups with a .jsonlz4.mhe filetype. Firefox ESR 38.5.1 on my rebuilt system does not support that file type. It is looking for .json and .jsonlz4 files. This is a work computer. I dont think the version on the lost system was ESR.

What is the difference in the types and how do i recover from the .jsonlz4.mhe ?

I think I found very easy and working solution for the issue of Firefox window being in mode Always on Top. Go to about:config and write there a string "ontop". In my case what appeared as a result is this setting.

E6C93316-271E-4b3d-8D7E-FE11B4350AEB---ontop == true

Switch it to value "false". It does not look like standard setting ony any built-in feature of Firefox, so this could be from some add-ons. Let's check add-ones, which are included and active in your FF. I found this (I didn't install it, but maybe it was installed by an admin).

Always on Top 2.1.25.1-signed.1-signed

Description:

Sets 'Always on Top' style for this windowVery simple "Always on top" addon implements the same simple functionality - it allows you to add style "Always on top" for current Firefox window.

You can use whether menu item, toolbar item or Ctrl-Alt-T shortcut

So turn it off, restart FF, and luckily work with it without being annoyed.
