    Hi everyone,
    Would anyone know why, when I click on ‘Screen options’ and ‘Howdy admin’, I get nothing?
    It works on other browsers but not on Firefox.
    Thanks for your help.

  • I tested my WordPress site in FireFox 5.0 and in the “Screen Options” and “Howdy Admin” tab I am able to see the options without any issues. Did you recently make any changes to Firefox (updated plugins, flash, etc.) that might have caused it to not work properly?

    Same problem to me. After updating to WP 3.2.1 I cannot open on my dashboard the floating windows. With IE 9 evrything works fine. I changed nothing in Firefox 5.

    Thanks for help!

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins (yes, all) to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s). Don’t forget the ones in mu-plugins. If you can’t get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    It is considered impolite to interupt someone eles’s thread. Please start your own.

    Thanks for your answers.
    No, I have not made any changes in Firefox.
    Besides, with the same host, I have a test site on a different server, which is the exact copy of the one with which the problem exists, and there is no bug with Firefox. I guess it comes from my host, but they don’t know what causes the problem.

    I’d like to add something: on my second computer, I have Firefox 3.6.8 only, and I have no problem.
    So, it comes from version 5. Does it require more memory to make some elements work?
    But, there’s also something with my host as, as I mentioned just before, my test site works perfectly.

    I have finally found the solution: increase memory in .htaccess:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    php_value memory_limit 128M
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    Hope it helps.
