Make sure you don't have that layer locked.
If you are talking about changing the size of the font, you would do
that in the Properties Panel.

Some extensions can cause similar problems. Try closing any custom panel extensions and see if that resolves the issue.
There is also a bug in Fireworks that causes a resize to fail for the first time if you are resizing a selected text element that is currently set to autosize and the text tool is the selected tool. Attempting to resize the text again, however, should allow it to work as expected.
thanks for the replies, but no, neither response addresses the specific problem. i can select and drag the object.... but when i click on the resizing handles, the app acts as if nothing is selected, and i simply end up dragging whatever object is behind it. (if their is no object behind it, i just end up deselecting the object).
can you post the png file so we can take a look?
