I'm posting this as a question because other ones on the topic are closed for comments

Anyway, I seem to have found the solution - sync clipboards using ClipIt (http://clipit.rspwn.com/) or some other clipboard manager

My case - hopefully FF devs find this useful: 1. Paste works - I paste screenshots, text copied from terminal, and other stuff 2. Copy text from FF page, or hitting a copy button on a page, works only partially - I can paste in other GUI apps but not in terminal

   The snippet does appear in ClipIt. When I select it, it becomes available to paste in terminal

3. Copy text from FF address box works - I can paste anywhere

The recommended solution from FF support is to "reset", which means "factory reset" - this doesn't solve the problem and kills all yous addins, bookmartks, settings, etc. FF support stop suggesting stupid solutions!

I have also played with the settings - there was something there wrt copy/paste - it worked for a few hours

My guess is that Firefox is doing something wrong when placing things in the clipboard. Placing in the wrong clipboard or maybe you should place it in multiple clipboards and please make it configurable in case you screw it.

I have noticed that sometimes the firefox browser crashes when a video is playing. This has happened multiple times now. To debug the issue, this time i started the browser using terminal so that when the browser crash i will see the message on the terminal. This time i was watching a youtube video. And while the video was playing the browser first hangs(meaning the screen/video freezes and browser doesn't respond to any clicks or anything) for first 2-3 minutes and then it crashes. This time since i had started the firefox from terminal, after the crash i got the following printed out on the terminal: ``` user@user-Inspiron-xxxx:~$ /usr/lib/firefox/./firefox Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. CPU time limit exceeded (core dumped) ``` I am using Ubuntu 18.04 and Firefox version 98.0(64 bit). I have downloaded the tar file of this version from Mozilla's official site and then installed it manually on my machine. Can someone help me solve the issue and also tell me the reason for this crash.

I am using Firefox 98.0(64 bit) on Ubuntu 18.04 and it crashes sometimes while i am browsing. I have downloaded the tar file from the official site and then installed it manually on my system. To debug this this time i opened the firefox from terminal and waited for it to crash. After some time while i was browsing, it suddenly crashed as i expected. The output that i got after the crash on the terminal was: ``` user@user-Inspiron-xxxx:~$ /usr/lib/firefox/./firefox

      1. !!! [Parent][PContentParent] Error: Send(msgname=PContent::Msg_DestroyBrowsingContextGroup) Closed channel: cannot send/recv


      1. !!! [Child][PContentChild] Error: RunMessage(msgname=PContent::Reply_DiscardBrowsingContext) Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost
      1. !!! [Child][PContentChild] Error: RunMessage(msgname=PContent::Msg_DestroyBrowsingContextGroup) Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. CPU time limit exceeded (core dumped) ```

What is the cause of this crash and how to solve it. After the crash i also typed: about:crashes on the address bar of the browser but when i pressed enter, i got a blank page on the top which No crash reports have been submitted was written.

Hello,

When I select text in Firefox the selection is not highlighted. The selection itself does work (e.g. deleting a selected word) but is not visible. The problem occurs in all fields where text can be entered, so the URL space, the search field but also text field on a page like this one. The strange thing is that the problem also occurs in Thunderbird.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS, Firefox 99.0 and Thunderbird 91.8.1

Disqus is not accepting ANY attempts to upload images and is fairly new...started rejecting image uploads a couple of weeks ago. Uploading still works fine on Chrome.

THIS is the error message:

Unfortunately your image upload failed. Please verify that your image is in a supported format (JPEG, PNG, or GIF) and under 5MB. If you continue seeing this error, please try again later.

Using FF 103.0 and Ubuntu 18.04. I tried again in troubleshooting mode...didn't help

(There are several sites that work well on Chrome but are glitchy one way or another on FFox. I don't like to use (or have to switch to) Chrome for workarounds!)

Is there something I can tweak on my FFox to fix this?

hi, it has been 2 days since firefox starts to behave in an unusual way. when opening many tabs, and if i dont click on them (ie inactive) in 2-3 minutes, they go blank. when i click on an inactive tab, firefox quickly refreshes it and shows the page. example: let's say i have 3 open tabs: tab1, tab2, tab3. i am reading in tab3 for 15mins. in that period, i didnt click on tab2/1. if now i click on tab2, it is blank and no longer displays the content of the page it is supposed to show. then, firefox quickly refreshes the page and displays the true page.

not really sure why this is happening now. never happened before. it is a really annoying behavior as every tab had to be refreshed automatically if i dont click on it in very few minutes. firefox 96.0 ubuntu 18.04. thanks

Since today I see a blank page when I open firefox. Everything was working ok before. I tried to purge firefox with all data and install again but the problem persists. I also tried to use firefox 85 and 86 from the website rather than from the apt-get package but this also didn't help. The same happens in safe-mode. I can't even access preferences, passwords, and other built-in pages. Please see the screenshot attached. I'm on Ubuntu 18.04.

When I close firefox it runs in the background and I have to kill the process manually.

Not having access to passwords is by far the most frustrating part in it.
