After I open more than a couple tabs, I can no longer select an item from a drop_down menu. If I close most open tabs, minimize Firefox, then maximize it again the drop_down menus work. This has started with version 6

it is REALLY inconvenient, so much so I am considering using Chrome ! And I have used Firefox since the very beginning Ver .3 firebird or Phoenix was the name at the time

Do you have any plugins or addons running that might be causing this issue.

Try running Firefox in Safe Mode to see if you still have the problem.

yes, adblock, forecastfox, better privacy, febe, cookieculler, fireftp the same ones I have used for years. And they are updated

on the weekend I will try removing them, all but adblock

if I have to use the internet without adblock, I will switch browsers

Try running in Safe Mode first just to see if it recitifies the issue.

You can then revert back to Normal Mode if it is still the same.

It's possible that there is a newer version of the plugin or addon available for Firefox, so I wouldn't be so inclined to ditch Firefox just yet (if you like using it).

Go to the web site of the Addon developer to see if they have a new version.

Good luck.
