    So I'm forced to use IE to post this as I cant with Firefox because when I click on the "Post new topic" button it does nothing. Same on any other forum, same when i try to use google or any other search box, even when I just press the enter key...doesn't work. Enter key does work on the address bar but nothing else, I can't even log in on any sites.

    So I need some help please, as this is annoying me and Firefox (V2.0.0.3) is the only browser I like to use.

    Thank you for your time.

    My firefox works perfectly =) Hence its either your system or some weird add-on that you have.

    I'd recommend removing your add-ons one by one, restarting firefox properly after each and every uninstall. See if that makes it work. If it doesnt, then I'd recommend completly uninstalling and reinstalling the whole of firefox =) Thats my 2 pennies.

    Maybe run a few spyware cleaners while you're at it.

    For the last couple months I have not been able to add things to my favorites by the normal method. I'd have to click Bookmarks, then Bookmark This Page. But it won't save unless I click a folder besides the auto Bookmarks folder. It does though if I choose Bookmarks below it though :wtf:. Also, if I keep the default name, it makes a bookmark with no name and keeps the "make bookmark" window open. So I have to punch an extra letter in, then push backspace and it thinks I've changed the name and saves it normal for me.

    Very very weird. Not having this, been using firefox a long time.

    On a windows box I'd recommend complete removal and then reinstallation of Firefox.

    By the title of the topic I thought you were asking for help because you were having problems reading the Gay Times in FireFox.

    Silly me.
