After downloading the latest version of FF, my droplist of browsing history/bookmarked pages only works intermittently.  

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open FF in Windows XP
2. Click on the droplist to open/view browsing history/saved pages

Actual Results:  
The droplist will not open.

Expected Results:  
The droplist should have opened. 

I don't have any special aspects to my browser other than what is provided by Mozilla.  The workaround is to simply type in the address you want to visit and it will populate.
can you reproduce in safe mode?

I think this needs to be fixed.  I use the droplist to navigate to many different sites for my job and it is difficult to do constantly having to type in the addresses.
Severity: minor → normal
what do you mean it works intermittently.  under what conditions is it working or not working?  Are you using Private Browsing Mode?  What are your remember history settings.  Anything that seems related would be helpful.

As described, this is Works For Me.
