I have a recent problem with mouse hover with Bookmarks in the Menu bar. Basically; it no longer shows the URL info in the drop down box, only a blank, box appears. I am using Windows 7 and the current Firefox 107.0. It appears to be a Windows 7 issue, because I have the same problem on my Win 7 desktop and Win 7 laptop, but a laptop with Windows 11 is OK.
The really odd part is this. If I run Firefox in troubleshooting mode in either Win 7 machine, the problem goes away, and the drop down box works fine, and displays the URL info. If I manually disable my add-ons in normal mode on either machine however, the problem does NOT go away.
One last odd point. On my desktop, when I am in normal Firefox mode, and look at Bookmarks in the History tab from the menu bar, the last (bottom most) bookmark, and ONLY the last bookmark WILL display the box info correctly. On my Win 7 laptop the same effect occurs, but the last (bottom most), bookmark will sometimes work properly in other folders, such as Other bookmarks for instance.
Also; the URL box does work properly with the ‘Show your bookmarks’ button, and the bookmarks menu if I use the “Open application menu”. These options produce too much ‘white space’ however, and are not as convenient to use. The drop down box works fine with other browsers, but Firefox is my favorite browser. I have searched the Internet and the forum, and not found a similar problem.
Attached are two photos showing the result in normal and troubleshooting mode. Thank you in advance.
