Just recently I've started experiencing a rather weird problem with my CS3 fireworks program. When I hover the mouse over any particular tool it does not highlight as the tool I am about to select. For example, if I want to select the text tool I have to hover the mouse over the slice tool which in turn highlights the text tool and then I can select it. This problem exists with any tool I try to select.
When I first started using CS3 Fireworks it was working properly. I've not added any new software to my computer or made any kind of changes to my operating system (PC) Vista. The problem just started occuring.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you might be able to provide me.
You could try resetting FWs preferences:
Browse to the Preference file location, as per your OS.
Windows [Drive]:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Application Data\Adobe\Fireworks CS#\English\
Mac [User]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Fireworks CS#/en/Fireworks Preferences
Delete the Fireworks CS# Preferences.txt file associated with your current FW version.
Restart FW and try again
