I am using Windows 7. Last week, the window buttons (minimize, restore, close) ceased operating in both Firefox and Thunderbird. I had to minimize/restore from the taskbar for them to restore operation. When I minimized and restored the window, the buttons worked, but after any other operation in the browser (scroll, change tab, whatever) they stopped responding. Another minimize/restore window and they worked again but they stopped responding again as I explained.
Other issues: Drag and drop functionality was lost. My screensaver no longer came on after the computer was idle for the allotted time. I could not select a choice in dropdown menus in Firefox or Thunderbird. And finally, none of the function buttons on YouTube (e.g., pause, volume) worked.
After some investigation, I solved the problem, like so:
1. Go to Start and run regedit, then find this folder: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4
2. Look at the value for Key 1802, which deals with permissions to drag and drop -- it should be "0" -- if it is "3" drag and drop is disabled.
3. Find Key 1802 and changed the value to 0. After restarting the computer, everything worked as it should.
Today, however, all of the above problems have returned. In fact, I was running a Malwarebytes scan when suddenly Windows began automatically updating. When the computer restarted after the update, the problems described above had returned.
Interestingly, my three kids each have a partition of the hard drive on this computer. These problems are not occurring for them. Just for me. Also, these problems do not seem to be happening in other browsers. If I open Google Chrome, for instance, the minimize/restore/close buttons work fine and the buttons on YouTube videos work as well.
I have run Malwarebytes, HitMan Pro, and TDSSKiller. Nothing has been found. I have tried running in safe mode; the problem persists. I have uninstalled and then reinstalled Firefox to no avail. I have reset Firefox as well as disabled add-ons, yet the problem persists.
I suspect something has altered the registry in some way. I tried to do a System Restore but the restore process did not complete.
I have noticed that others have had this problem with Firefox in the past, and no one seems to have been given a solution. Please note that I have already tried the "standard" suggestions of resetting, reinstalling, and so forth. They don't work.
Any ideas at all?
