Title basically says it all. This newest update of Firefox has had multiple problems, starting with losing ALL my previous bookmarks and making me create them all over again. The latest issue is something I can't patch up myself. When I right-click the tabs bar to select "Reopen Closed Tab," it's now buried beneath some non-functioning drop-down arrow. Why? The drop arrow takes up the same amount of space the Reopen Closed Tab does. There's no room saved. As an added insult, arrow doesn't actually work. I can't click it. I can't scroll down through the options. I can't do anything. Reopen Closed Tab is now buried and completely unusable. If this continues, I'll be forced to downgrade to the previous Firefox to get rid of this problem. How do I solve this?

As an update since it won't let me edit my post - I've tried restarting Firefox in safe mode.

Did Safe Mode help? Try pressing the <Escape> key a few times.

Do you see the option if you right-click a tab?

Safe mode didn't really change much. I just had to add my extensions again. Escape etc. did nothing, nor did ensuring I was viewing at 100% to make sure text wasn't just being enlarged off a tab. Regarding TNorth's question, My "reopen closed tab" has always been accessed by right-clicking in the tab bar, which is where I was having the issue.

It seems the problem has fixed now. Never found out what was causing it. I did notice that my Firefox updates had been switched from notifying me/asking my permission to automatic. I've changed that back and will just cross my fingers that future updates don't mess things up again... Thanks for the replies, everyone.

It's possible you were updated (one is due out very soon).

Type about:support<enter> in the address bar. Look for the version.

Do you possibly use a multiple monitor setup ?
