Question - where are your chat windows?

While they show as being invis, I've found that you can't actually click through them.

May or may not be the problem, but can't hurt to ask.

Other possibility can be: there is some hiden frame for addon.. It shouldn't really happen if enableMouse is set on false but happened to me once.

When i was doing my durability addon i had this funny problem that it was working fine (was showing tooltip on mousover) everywhere but small rectangle under Minimapcluster. So i guessed there is some other frame that doesn't allow my frame to get mousover event. Took me 2h to find that actually it is one of addons (ThottBotReplace Frame in MapNotes) Funny thing is that main frame had enableMouse set as false and it still was somehow disallwoing my durability frame to get mousover event O.o..

So i would sugest disabling one addon by another and see if your blank areas are still unclicable

Make a backup copy of your interface folder, and then delete it (the original interface folder, not the backup ) - if you still have the problem its definately not interface related and you might reinstall wow.

ok i found one problem.... "TrackerAssist" leaves a big blank spot near the map,

ok i found the code in the file thats doing this.. Its for the text under the map. if anyone wants to know how to get rid if this text just go to the file and 0 out this:

<Button name="TrackerAssistTextButton">
<AbsDimension x="500" y="30"/> <<<<------<AbsDimension x="0" y="0"/>

<Anchor point="TOPLEFT">
<AbsDimension x="0" y="0"/>
