Firefox hyperlinks stopped working

Menu bar, far right "Go to the Firefox homepage"
and "Get more extensions" in the Extensions window (Tools, extensions) have stopped working. No response when the mouse pointer is over them and clicking.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no success.

Also any pointers on how to fully uninstall Firefox, as when I reinstalled all my settings etc.. were still present.

Valvegrid I am running Firefox 1.0. This is the first version I have installed.

Just checked Themes hyperlink and as you say this does not work either. These hyperlinks were definnitely working a couple of days ago.

"The other way to try is go to Tools> Extensions as well." That's how I initially hit on this problem.

Thanks for your comments Valvegrid. Probably need to wait and see. I'll leave the thread running for others and also maybe someone will have an answer.

Just checked and all 3 boxes ticked.

Just realised that I had not answered.

Using your "click here" link above I can access the Firefox extensions pages. I have no problems with hyperlinks on web pages.

I have completely uninstalled as per advice received from Filipp0s on the Mozillazine Forum and reinstalled Firefox 1.0. All is now working correctly.

Here is Filipp0s advice:

a. Backup; How

b. Uninstall from Add/Remove programs

c. Remove your profile folder, location depends on OS:
