Mouse cursor doesn't change when hovering over hyperlinks

e.g. Google search

When hovering over hyperlinks (e.g. the Blah Wikipedia link that comes up in the search results above), the mouse cursor doesn't always change into a hand.

Strangely, the mouse cursor does change into a hand sometimes (e.g. when hovering over the magnifying-glass icon to the right of the search result links), probably because of CSS rules - it's just the default.

Fixed problem - turns out the permissions in my ~/.mozilla directory were incorrect (several files were owned by root, and not writable by my account). Running:

   $ sudo chown -R (user) ~/.mozilla

then restarting Firefox fixed it.

Strange it gave no actual error messages though.
