Hi..you wont believe this. Its only happening in Firefox now!!.
yup--checked several times. IE7 no problem, click preferences and everything is regenerated but not in firefox.

FireFox recently tried to update itself on my machine.
Im thinking it either did not or its incomplete.

I will try the latest update and see.

I also went ahead and disabled a few questionable modules..but again nothing recent was done except for this possible browser issue..

update
Ok reviewed this issue again..
Even after updating Firefox to the very latest...
from
version 3.0.13 -->3.5.2

and this issue is it destroys the adminmenu.php completely..
no menus appear after updating preferences, and selections dont take.

Log in to IE7 or Safari and am asked if its "first time to enter admin area etc.."
Click yes, recreates.
safari yes,
Ie 7 yes,

Firefox no..? weird im tellin ya. maybe its just me..but Im going to some research and see what features Firefox may have enabled that may be causing this problem.

if it works in IE and not FF then check if referrer is on.

firefox url type in about:config hit enter
network.http.sendRefererHeader should be set to 2 an integer value.

Bandit-X Thanks!- you saved the day again!

Yup that was it. That's annoying, that is not the first time an auto-update has added layers of settings that have affected my browsing abilities in firefox. (another one I can think of was the annoying re-direct warning).

Indeed the network.http.sendRefererHeader was set as 0
I typed about:config in my firfox address bar and was able to change that option to 2 (as integer) after scrolling and finding it.

I would not have ever guessed that!! But now will keep an eye out. BTW- Would this affect registered users as well? Or only admin functions?

thanks again.!!
This was definitely part of a presumed major problem we have been having. And we are cleaning up our files in the process, too. ;)
