www.wtatour.com On the home page, the middle window with all the news, etc. I can't click on anything in there, it doesn't work.

Can anyone help ? It does that on other websites with similar windows.

I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.4. Ever since I updated it's been doing that.

Can you afford to rollback to an older version of Firefox?It is not a good idea to compromise security for a single site but you probably need to see if Firefox is the real problem or not.Also,can you view and click the site in Internet Explorer,Opera,Avant,etc. or any other web browser?Tell me as soon as you can.

The site works perfectly well in Internet Explorer. And nope, it doesn't say download plugin. I can see the window, see the news, even scroll through them with the little arrows but I can't click on any link that's contained into those windows. Also when I move my mouse on the menus on top (News, results, players, tournaments etc.) the menus that unfold appear BEHIND that damn window. Except for the ones that are not in front of the window, like rankings and the rest. Weird.

Really weird.Have you configured Firefox recently or downloaded some add-on that may be blocking the site?Try to reconfigure and verify your settings in Firefox as this might be the case.Meanwhile,I will look for an alternate fix.Good Luck.

Ok so I uninstalled and reinstalled, still doing the same thing. Funny thing is that I updated Firefox on my other computer and it works perfectly well. I checked in the "error log" under options in Firefox (My Firefox is in French so I'm kinda roughly translating the terms, sorry.) and there's always a "warning" when I click on that window. It says (roughly translated) : Analysis error for the value "font". Declaration abandoned".... Any idea what it means ?

Ok I solved the problem. I uninstall EVERYTHING, not only by uninstalling in the add/delete program (because that deletes the program, but not the bookmarks, profiles, etc.), but also by deleting any Mozilla file. I then reinstalled and it worked. Don't forget to save a copy of your bookmarks if you want to keep them.
