Top three buttons recently became unresponsive. Same for all users and when addons removed. All other aspects working fine.

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Hi, thanks for the quick response. Tried a refresh and a troubleshoot mode, problem still there? Really strange as all other tabs,menus etc etc still work. The three buttons on all other apps work just fine. just a FF thing for all users. Beginning to think its a Windows 11 beta issue??? I've also given feedback to Microsoft

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

As a test, disable your protection programs.

Still unresponsive close, minimise and maximise buttons. just using last close tab button now. This is weird, and only those three buttons in FF. All, and I do mean All other progs and apps function 100%. uninstall, install and refresh fail to get those buttons working. will wait for Ff and or Windows next update.

Can you use the system menu (Alt+Space) instead or are those items grayed ?

Is this only a problem in 94 Beta/DE or also in 93 Release ? Are you on Windows 10 or Windows 11 ?

Make sure you run Firefox in desktop mode and not in tablet mode.

Thanks cor-el touch screen option only and only occurred recently (after 94 beta update???) and windows 11 did away with tablet/desktop mode. Something "happened" as all working again! So frustrating ie dont know why it came about and dont know why/who fixed it? Ah well, the joys of beta windows and FF

Thanks all.
