Why is it that it takes any thing up to 10 times to coppy and paste any thing , it never did it untill the latest upgrade.
When I try to copy and paste it dose not work, the paste dose not show then when it dose show it dose not work.
This has to be done any thing up to 10 times over just to get it to work.
I find it most annoying

Maybe others will have better ideas, but I find it odd it works only after repeated attempts. I may have expected the action either: to work, or not work. Are you copying using a keyboard shortcut, if so is the keyboard faulty?
no using the mouse
Try using the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V, to cut, and to paste.
If you explain a typical task you are trying to complete and how you are attempting to do it it may help. What are you trying to copy: a web address ? or part of a web page ? for instance.

What exactly are you doing,and what are you right clicking on.
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
