Did Firefox 13.0.1 disable top bing.com results?

I upgraded Firefox, (or rather it upgraded itself) and I noticed immediately that I cannot click on the first 3 Bing search results. What I mean by that is my cursor turns into a text selector which means hovering over a search link looks to be text and not a link.

Sometimes it's link 3 to 6, sometimes its only one result, and sometimes there are other variations.

I do not seem to have a virus.

I used firebug to determine what might be the cause and can find no css differences between the results.

Any help would be appreciated because it looks like I'm going to have to move back to Google for default search until I figure out what is going on :( :(

normally when i cant click on a link like that, i find it's because of the CSS. i always find that a div (or whatever) has been accidentally positoned over the top of the link, so that is what the cursor now hovers over.

maybe a div from the ads on the right, or the sidebar on the left, is extending out into the SERPs?

try turning off the css, and seeing if you can click the links.
