Do you have this issue with FF43 or FF44?
I had it with FF44. I guess it first happened directly after the update. I am currently back on 43, because there the bug does not seem to exist for me.
Ok, I see. It could be a dupe of bug 1243914. I'm pretty sure you're not alone and the issue is already known. Patric, what do you think?
Component: Untriaged → Startup and Profile System
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
Summary: Firefox does not open link or react at all → Firefox 44 does not open link or react at all (Firefox 43 not affected)
Looks like a duplicate to me. Sums up everything that happened to me so far. I didn't find this report in the bugtracker before I created this entry. If I did find it before, I wouldn't have created this one.
