Solved! Go to Solution.
If it works in Safe Mode or with all extensions (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) disabled then try to find which extension is causing it by enabling one extension at a time until the problem reappears.
Close and restart Firefox after each change via "Firefox > Exit" (Windows: Firefox/File > Exit; Mac: "Firefox > Quit Firefox"; Linux: "Firefox/File > Quit")
The problem was Do Not Track Me 220.127.116.111. The problem links now work. thx.
Now I can proceed to find out why I don't have the FireFox button in the upper left. I have only a regular menu. I have never had that button. Oh well, back to the add-on box.
You get the orange Firefox menu button when the menu bar is hidden.
