Can't use mouse to navigate in firefox-gtk3 on gtk 3
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140612121001 Steps to reproduce: Open firefox, try to click on anything. This has been happening on Fedora 21 (Rawhide) x86_64. It seems to have started not with an update to firefox, but an update to other software, so perhaps firefox is not working with updated gtk libraries. Actual results: Nothing is clickable, and clicking on elements (any UI element or part of a web page) seems to have the same effect as clicking the title bar, as double clicking will maximize or unmaximize the window. After double clicking, the window will either maximize or unmaximize (whatever is possible) but the element that was being clicked on will be clicked if it is a UI element, or selected if it's part of a web page (if a text field, the text will be selected; if it's a link, it will not have been clicked, but it will have the dotted line around it indicating it is selected and can be "clicked" by hitting enter). Expected results: Clicking should just click.
The problem might be related to the scaling issues observed in bug 1025715.
i filed both bugs, but they seem to be separate. this bug i have observed longer, and effects all firefox-gtk3 windows. it also was not revealed by an update to firefox, but an update to other software (it was a big batch so i have no way of tracking figuring out which package caused this). the scaling bug is only a problem in e10s windows, but i don't know if it has always been a problem, because prior to the scaling issue, e10s windows were blank due to bug 1013552
Yes, it's best to track the different symptoms separately, at least until we know the cause(s).

I have the exact same problem here. I'm willing to provide more information or do some testing but I don't really know where to look. I'm using mozilla-central tip with gtk3.
Ok, fwiw, I was running gtk 3.13.2. 3.13.3 has been released and solved the issue for me.
I can confirm this is fixed with gtk 3.13.3
works for me with the latest update as well! the question is now whether it was a bug in firefox or a bug in gtk over which firefox could not do much to avoid. i suspect, as firefox was the only application affected, that it may not be handling something properly which that version of gtk just happened to expose
Summary: Can't use mouse to navigate on firefox-gtk3 → Can't use mouse to navigate in firefox-gtk3 on gtk 3.13.2
Given this was only with a development version of GTK, I don't think there is a need to do anything here.
