Recently my mouse pointer gets stuck in drag mode in Google maps.
This is not happening using IE or Bing maps in Firefox 19.
It does not happen using Tor Browser (based on Firefox 17).
I disabled all extensions and all add ons to no avail.
I have the same problem after an update yesterday.
Chrome gives no problems with Google maps.
Problems with FF19 in Ubuntu
When I load the page and move the map a little bit the map gets stuck and also the zoombar does not work. The menu for changing the map type does work but the changing of the map type does not take place. When I renew the page; then the new map type is visible.
For some unexplained reason, FF19 stopped behaving badly and moving Google maps with the mouse started working as before.
Since I posted initial message, new Java version and updated Flash has been installed. I cannot claim that THAT fixed Google map but it works. Current FF19.0.2 works fine, too.
Checking/unchecking hardware acceleration did not make a difference but I will remember that for next time.
