    Using Firefox 1.5.0.4

    It's so simple it's difficult to explain;

    When doing a Google search I can USUALLY double click in the Search Window and all previous searches will show up in a drop-down window, allowing me to scroll down and highlight a previous search and go to it with one click. Now, The drop-down window works but I can't highlight anything. Same goes for ebay - I can type in a previous search but can't highlight anything.

    Have I accidentally changed a setting?

    TIA for any help or suggestions,

    Mark

    Start Firefox in safe mode.
    Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode).
    This runs Firefox without any extensions and default theme. If the problem
    disappears, then it is an extension or theme effecting it. If that doesn't help,
    you might try and create a new profile, in case your profile is corrupted.

    Thanks Augie65. The problem seems to have fixed itself - although Firefox seems to start very slowly. If the problem occurs again I will try creatig a new profile.

    Much appreciated!
