Hi all , hope someone can help please. When I hover my cursor over a link in Firefox 27.0.1, using Windows 7, I don't get the usual 'hand' icon, but when I click, the same window flashes opens again, offering the 'hand'and the link then works. But sometimes even that doesn't work though, and I have to refresh the page first. Everything was working fine until recently, with no changes made to my system, except the usual Window's and Firefox updates. But I can't pinpoint exactly when things went pear shaped.
Any thoughts or solutions would be more than welcome please.

Try restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled, see if the problem goes away.

Click The Firefox icon at top left, then Help and Restart with Add-ons disabled.

If that fixes it, click Firefox, Add-ons and disable them a few at a time then test till you find the one causing the problem.

Thank you thank you thank you, disabled a couple of recent plug-ins and all's well so far. I'm blaming it on 'iCloud Bookmarks' because iCloud and iTunes haven't been playing nicely with my Windows!
