Firefox Menu Bar Bugs!!!

Postby w201 » Thu Jan 10, 2013 2:01 pm

Hi All,

I have this reoccuring problem with Firefox. I open Firefox and click any option on the menu bar (File, Edit, View, etc...) when I see the dropdown, as soon as I start to scroll down with my mouse, the dropdown list disapears. Restarting Firefox solves the problem, but I need a real solution. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Thanks!

This is not a solution because I don't have the problem, and have never seen it either, but it might be a workround you can live with.

Right click on the menu bar and untick it. It will be replaced with a small 'Firefox' menu at the start of the tab bar. See if you can work with that. A side effect is that it gives you ever so slightly more screen space for the main part of the window as well, so that is a bonus. :)

Thanks viking777, I'll try that for now and pray that the same thing doesn't happen with the smaller menu bar.

*Update*

Still having this issue which so far seems to be affecting only my computer. It not only happens with the menu bar dropdown list, but with all dropdowns on the Firefox browser. If anyone finds a fix, please shoot me a PM and leave a solution on this thread. Thanks again!

Usually firefox only issue. Then I disable my plugins first and restart.
Continued problem then I switch theme to default and try again.
All I can think of at the moment.

Thanks for the suggestions, Orbmiser. I'll give that a whirl.
