Toolbar - right clicking on bookmarks not working

I can no longer right click on bookmarks that are placed in my toolbar. When I try, I receive a small white square and sometimes rectangular box. I cannot figure out how to take a screen capture of this issue, sorry.

Example - I have a folder with a few bookmarks within located on my toolbar. I used to right click on that toolbar folder and choose to open in new tabs. It was quite handy :)

I am not having any problems right clicking on any page or any other thing on my browser.

Thank you so much for looking into it! Angie

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

You need to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.
