Since I switched over to Firefox, I'm having trouble on Facebook, where links that would normally only open if I clicked on them now just pop open when the mouse cursor is nowhere near them or when I've not clicked on them. I've tried several different mouses so the mouse has been ruled out. I'm trying to rule out a browser problem before I approach it as a Facebook problem.

HI, this may be a reason : Facebook Political Ad Collector

You should be running your mouse drivers as stand alone and not as a Extension : Logitech SetPoint 6.60.90

Please try : SAFE MODE

In Firefox Safe mode these changes are effective:

  • all extensions are disabled (about:addons)
  • default theme is used (no persona)
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css are ignored (chrome folder)
  • default toolbar layout is used (file: localstore-safe.rdf)
  • Javascript JIT compilers are disabled (prefs: javascript.options.*jit)
  • hardware acceleration is disabled (Options > Performance > Uncheck to view)
  • plugins are not affected
  • preferences are not affected
