When I try to select text in a box it moves me to the next tab in my products database.

Apparently the database is built in Joomla and PHP. The developer says it must be a browser issue as it doesn’t happen for him. Also it doesn’t happen for me in Google Chrome. I am attaching a screen grab.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

Clear the Cache and remove the Cookies for websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Options/Preferences).

"Remove the Cookies" for websites that cause problems:

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Data"

"Clear the Cache":

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Cached Web Content: Clear

Thank you very much for the information. I have default theme. I have cleared the cache. The problem still occurs in safe mode. I have asked my developper to check again at his end. Alex

My developer has sent me this screenshot. Apparently this command should stop it happening. Alex

Hi alex114:

Please have your developer ask in stack overflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/firefox

This forum is focused on user questions not developer questions.

Cheers!
