I can't left click to select or right click for menus. This works in IE, what do I need to do to get this to work in firefox?

I don't understand why this doesn't work. My OS is vista. The right click for menus stopped working several months ago, so I have been using IE when I need that. The left click to select stopped working 2 days ago. So now firefox is unusable unless I can figure out why it is doing this.

-> click Firefox button and click Exit
-> Start Firefox in Safe Mode (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+Mode
-> Firefox Safe Mode window will open. DON'T SELECT ANY OPTIONS, just click Continue in Safe Mode
Check and tell if its working while you are in Safe Mode.

  • Can't Left Click in Flash Player Settings Panel - HELP PLEASE

    Hi and thanks for taking the time to read this. Believe me it is a fraction of the time I have wasted trying to resolve this issue.
    Basic problem is:
    I am trying to stream to Ustream but since downloading AFP11 for my Windows PC when I open the Flash Player Settings panel i can't left click on anything. It is set to deny but I can't click allow, or close or any of the icons.
    Right click does work.
    I have followed countless instructions in other forums from other posts that have encountered the problem on Mac and older versions of AFP but as yet none of the solutions have proven succesul.
    I have tried all of the following but nothing has resolved the problem.
    1. Uninstall and reinstall Adobe Flash Player (although this is impossible using Google Chrome) and restart computer.
    2. Unistall flash and install older version. (made no difference on Google Chrome and on IE8 had no flash whatsoever).
    5. Uninstall older AFP and reinstall AFP11.
    4. Uninstall Google Chrome and restart computer.
    5. Uninstall QuickTime (I got this off http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/flash-player-not-working-properly-please-help-1 61552.html) and restart computer
    6. Last resort use keyboard shortcuts such as tab, enter and ctrl+arrows. This either didn't highlight the panel at all or if it did I still couln't select allow, or close the panel itself so was no help either.
    So now I'm back to square one.
    Now here's a really bizarre thing... I am using a shared laptop computer and if I use my colleagues profile where she hasn't updated her AFP to Adobe Flash Player 11 the settings panel is responding just fine. IT'S THE SAME PC!
    I know I am alone with this problem but someone out there has an answer. If you can help please let me know how to fix this problem where I can't left click in the Adobe Flash Player settings panel.and I will be eternily grateful.
    many thanks

    OK the amount I hate myself right now is more than a fat guy's self loathing for raiding the fridge at 2am for Pizza but less than an armed robber who's accidentally shot a pregnant woman in the stomach during a shootout. but not much less.
    So after I had miraculously got the Flash Player Setting Panel to work again, (after deleting QuickTime and leaving the window open for abut an hour it just started working again) I then got enticed into downloading the ustream producer software.
    While downloading it informed me that it would only work with QuickTime.
    Stupidly and Optimistically hoping it would remove the need to use flash player altogether I downloaded and installed both.
    I then discovered to my horror that Ustream producer is not a patch on Vidbalster and that it was not capable of delivering the same level of broadcast.
    I then opened the flash player settings panel on ustream and... the problem has returned!
    This means I am 99% sure that QuickTime IS the cause of the problem so I have uninstalled QT off the PC. I have also uninstalled Ustream Producer.
    The thing is though, now no matter how many times I restart, or uninstall and reinstall Adobe, or Google Chrome, I am once again UNABLE TO LEFT CLICK IN THE FLASH PLAYER SETTINGS PANEL. AAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!
    What did I do? I fixed it and  f***ing broke it again!
    Now it properly will not come back to life! the problem is not solved and i urgently need help.
    Why does Adobe Flash Player Settings Panel and Apple QuickTime hate each other so much that they've got to ruin my life?
    Help forum PLEASE!
    Regards,
    nik

  • Can't left click on certain folders in iTunes

    WIndows 7, iTunes 10.5, iOS 5, iPhone 4
    I cannot left click on certain folders in iTunes, such as Music, Movies, any of my Playlists, etc. If I left-click on them I see a red circle with a diagonal line through it. I have to right-click on it first, dismiss the pop-up window and I can access it fine.
    This behavior is not exclusive - I can left click on some folders, like Apps, Ringtones, etc. Also I can left click elsewhere in iTunes like the menus at the top (File, Edit, View, etc.). I can also left-click elsewhere in Windows just fine.
    Any ideas

    Having the same problem with a windows computer.I can only click with the right button on the top folders. The lower folders like playlist work perfectly. I uninstalled Itunes because it had gone through an update and thought that a line of code or directory was missing but the problem persisted.
    I have had no poblems with any of my macs which are all new however, when I launched Itunes which had just been updated on those machines, my macbook pro froze.
    Looking for a fix...please help

    You can try these steps in case of issues with web pages:
    You can reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.
    *Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
    *Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
    *Press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)
    Clear the cache and cookies only from websites that cause problems.
    "Clear the Cache":
    *Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"
    "Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
    *Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: "Show Cookies"
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
    *Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
    *Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

  • Can`t left click and drag clip into timeline..Need advice

    Can`t left click and drag clip into timeline, or drag clips around in timeline.
    Can insert into timeline from Source Window but can't drag from source window.
    Can cut and paste within timeline.
    Restarting cs5 doesn`t help, but restarting computer solves problem for a while.
    Tried many mouses, but that didn`t help.
    Have no idea how I got the name OLD PRO, must have been drinking champagne years ago, because I am a bumbler par excellence!
    Message was edited by: old pro

    Thank you so much for asking
    In the Project Panel a left click highlights the asset but ignores the drag.
    In the timeline, a left click highlights the panel and when I try to drag it gives a flicker but that's all.
    I can cut and paste in the timeline.
    A restart of CS5 has no effect. Restarting the computer solves the problem for a while.
    Four different mouses--same problem.

  • Can't left click in some apps! Help!!

    After upgrading to Mavericks, i can't left click on multiple apps including mails, maps etc. Even magic mouse cannot help. Any help / idea is greatly appreciated!

    @macjack
    Thanks for your reply and help. I tried the above, there werent many things in my login items. I have also deleted my startup items but even with logout or restart, the problem persist.
    What i noticed when during mail app starts, i was able to left click on one email when the app is loading, but it ceased to function when it fully loads up... strange...
    I did a recovery install of maverick and it yield the same results... 2hrs of my time wasted... btw, i upgraded from m lion (which worked great for me)... contemplating a reinstall of m.lion instead of using mvricks.
    Seems like every road of a free os is always bumpy...

  • Can't left click music, movies or TV Shows libraries

    Windows 7 64bit, Itunes 10.5.0.142
    I can't left click on the music, movies, or tv shows libraries.
    I have tried running Itunes as administrator, but that did not fix the issue.
    I can get to the libraries in question by right clicking and then hitting esc to get out of the menu, or I can use the arrow keys to navigate to the correct library.
    So I'm working around the issue, but it is very annoying.
    Help!

    Same, I've been having this problem for a while now. I've tried reinstalling itunes, restore my computer to weeks ago, etc but nothing is working. I also used to be able to edit song names, artists, etc by left clicking. But same thing as libraries, it doesn't work. I honestly think that it is a problem with the 10.5 update.

  • Can't left click library or playlists!!

    I'm using a sony vaio laptop with Windows 7. I downloaded itunes 10 2 days ago from the apple website. I can not left click on the music library, playlists etc...mainly the whole list on the left hand side. When I left click, a red circle with a line through it comes up and allows me to move the playlist. I can only get into it by right clicking, which brings up a list (delete etc). Also the itunes help does not work. A window displaying the message 'not found' opens with this message underneath:
    'The requested URL /itunes/win/10.5/ was not found on this server.'
    'Apache/2.2.3 (Oracle) Server at help.apple.com Port 80'
    Please help!!

  • Blocks in standalone applications which can be double clicked for changing parameters

    Can we have blocks in standalone applications which can be double clicked for changing parameters.
    something like an options/configure button which opens another window and helps us to change tha parameters  of that particular
    block.

    Well, you will need to program your application that way. Maybe I am not understanding this correctly but what parameters do you want to change in your standalone application?

    Sounds that you have installed a Firefox Beta release and thus are on the beta update channel, see Help > About.<br />
    The Beta update channel receives an update twice a week.
    You need to install the current release to switch the update channel to release.
    Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.
    *Firefox 27: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html
    If possible uninstall your current Firefox version to cleanup the Windows registry and settings in security software.
    *Do NOT remove personal data when you uninstall your current Firefox version, because all profile folders will be removed and you lose personal data like bookmarks and passwords from profiles of other Firefox versions.
    Your bookmarks and other personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and won't be affected by an uninstall and (re)install, but make sure that "remove personal data" is NOT selected when you uninstall Firefox.

    If you have redeemed the voucher for something separate from the computer, then it's a non-issue. If you redeemed it as a price reduction for the computer, then they will return only what you paid less the coupon.

    The only people who can possibly assist you with this is Apple Customer Relations, call your local Apple contact number and ask for Customer Relations then explain your situation clearly and politely (be firm but don't rant).
    You might want to investiage what the local laws are regarding defective goods and 'fit for use' definitions on warranties etc. Consumer Protection can be a useful tool to use or bargain with if needed ...
