Hi Marco,

thanks for that hint.
I started Firefox in safe mode and it worked.
After that I started in normal mode and disabled half of the installed addons, to figure out, which causes the problem.

I found out, that the DivX Player adds 2 plugins:
* DivX Plus Web Player
* DivX VOD Helper Plug-in

In addition, it installs an addon called "DivX Web Player HTML5 <video>", which causes the problem.

To uninstall this addon, one has to end Firefox and rename the folder for the DivX Firefox addon in:
%SystemDrive%\Program Files (x86)\DivX\DivX Web Player\firefox
to e.g.
%SystemDrive%\Program Files (x86)\DivX\DivX Web Player\_firefox

After that, one can start Firefox and only the "DivX Web Player HTML5 <video>" has gone and links gets shown in the address bar, as expected.

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for reporting back, please notify DivX of the bug in their add-ons so they can fix it.
Resolving since not a firefox bug.
