The right-click link menu in Firefox 29.0.1 on Mac OSX 10.9.3 does not fully display options (cuts off text)

When I right click on a link, the usual menu I used to get in older versions of firefox still shows up. However, it shows up in a box that's much, much smaller than the size of the box in previous versions. The text gets cut off and while I can scroll up and down, I can't scroll left to right to read the text of the option. Actually, I've noticed that this happens with most right click menus now.

For example, if I right-click on a link, I get:

Open Li... Open Li... Open Li... (down facing arrow to hover over to see the rest of the options)

All of the system and Firefox fontsize, menu size etc. are at their default. I haven't changed anything.

You can check for problems caused by a corrupted localstore.rdf file.

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:

  • Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Show Folder (Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder)

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over the problem
