Windows 7: Firefox: Can't drag URLs to Links bar

Firefox: Can't drag URLs to Links bar

I first used my version on a USB stick, and thought that it was because it wasn't installed. The USB version works fine on XP and Vista.

I installed it, and still can't use the link bar. Build 7100, ff 3.0.10.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Try running firefox in safe mode and see if it works then? Just to avoid confusion, I mean the safe mode version of firefox, not running firefox in windows safe mode.

That's a new one for me. How do I access safe mode?

Thanks,

It should be in your Start Menu under Mozilla Firefox.

The link bar does work in safe mode. So, where do I go from here?

Then it might be one of your add ons causing a problem. Disable whatever add ons you have one by one and try and find out which one it might be causing the problem.

Change your folder option to view hidden folder and go to your user name and go to AppDatta/Roaming/Mozilla and rename the folder to Mozilla (2) and start up Firefox and see if you can now drag your URL's to the links bar, if that works it must be a setting or addon that has caused your problem and you will need to delete the new Mozilla folsder and rename the old one again and find out what setting it was that stopped you.
