I want to dictate in the on-line version with MS Word. When I select the Microphone icon, I get a message that the Website can't access the Microphone. I have already scanned all articles about the topic, but I can't get the microphone to work. When I go to Options > Privacy & Security > Permissions > Microphone > Settings I can enter the URL, but the Enter button doesn't work. There is no microphone icon in the address bar neither. When I select the Lock icon, it tells me in the information pop-up that I have given no permission to anything. I have neither found something in the Windows 10 setting. I tried to dictate with the on-line version of MS Word with Chrome, and there it works. I would very much appreciate the help of someone who came across the same issue. Regards Bernhard

windows 10 64bit, latest firefox install. i see an issue with my keyboard typing the wrong characters in firefox, it seems to randomly replace the character i press on the keyboard with a different one. I can be typing something into a webpage, either ebay or facebook, or even an address on any ecomerce site, and i get ridiculous spelling issues. E.g i type "firefox issue" into this page, and i get "firefix issue" if i goto the the "O" btton on the keyboard, and hold it down, i get "iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiooiiiiiiii" or some other random pattern. I don't have any emoji extensions installed, and have zone alarm installed, and its up to date too. Any ideas??

Unable to log in to my account on https://online.congressionalfcu.org/Banking/SignIn.aspx. Each time I try to login, the website takes me back to the login page. Have spoken with bank reps and tech support, cleared cache and cookies, re-booted, etc. Tried accessing the website using Chrome and had no problem. Using Standard Tracking Protection (can't seem to add an exception). TIA for advice.

This is a new problem as of yesterday. I've been using FF successfully to log in to this website for months.

Recently did the automatic upgrade of FireFox for Windows on one of my computers that was not logged in (sync) with FireFox. Upon completion all of my bookmarks and history were gone. An upgrade should not have done that.

Thought someone would want to know.

Since upgrading to Firefox 79 many Web pages are noticeably, irritatingly slower: Slow to load, and especially for interactive pages (Javascript, etc), slow to respond. Some are teeth-grindingly, give-up-on-Firefox slow.

I've downgraded twice to Firefox 77 and the slowness went away, but that isn't a choice anymore on my work computer.

Please get rid of whatever "improvements" have ruined version 79 and restore the performance of my preferred browser.

Hello Everyone

my question is with respect to the "comment section" below some You Tube videos, such as videos done by Vloggers. The "comment section" never shows up when using Firefox browser on my Lenovo ThinkPad. It will show up if I use Chrome, which I rarely use.

Thank you

Hi I've been searching for a solution for this problem for quite some time and it is starting to annoy me. Every time I try and search for something instead of using google it switches to yahoo? It didn't do this beforehand. I've seen some solutions on here like doing Ctrl + Shift + a and I've done it but it brings me to a blank tab. It's like whatever it is doesn't want me to remove it. I also tried refreshing Firefox and that didn't help either.
