As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

I just upgraded to Firefox 77, x64, Windows 10 2004.

Firefox 76 already broke LockWise - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287008

Now Firefox 77 breaks 99% of all websites. (See attached screenshot.) www.example.com www.google.com www.wikipedia.org etc

Somehow, support.mozilla.org works, UNTIL I try to log in.

I've tried incognito mode, safe mode, etc. When I change charset of the page, the text displays differently, but it's still a useless mishmash.

--- BUT --- when I open developer tools, click the HTML request and click the Response tab, the HTML renders correctly there.

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

How can I roll back to the previous version of Firefox?

It just updated without my knowledge to version 76.0 and it broke Google Maps. I cannot "grab" the maps and moved them in any direction, an extremely very important feature. It's not Google, because I tried the identical maps using Opera, Chrome and Brave and it's working fine on all three of those browsers. Thanks for your help.

  • turning network.dns.disableIPv6 to 'true'; didn't help.
  • turning network.dns.disablePrefetch to 'true'; didn't help.

Codemirror.net has lots of themes besides the dark theme in current dev tools (now Fx 74). The "instructions" how to add / use one :D are more towards if CM is a free standing editor, rather than if codemirror is embedded in a browser.

"Up to a certain extent, CodeMirror's look can be changed by modifying style sheet files. The style sheets supplied by modes simply provide the colors for that mode, and can be adapted in a very *straightforward* way. Well....

"To style the editor itself, it is possible to ALTER or override the styles defined in codemirror.css."

Continuing: "The easiest way to use CodeMirror is to simply load the script and style sheet found under lib/ in the distribution, plus a mode script from one of the mode/ directories. For example:

<script src="lib/codemirror.js"></script> <link rel="stylesheet" href="lib/codemirror.css"> <script src="mode/javascript/javascript.js"></script>"

The only problem is, I can't find a detailed enough example (only ones like the college engineering professors worked, leaving out several key steps).

There weren't many posts in their community about how to make it use another theme than the Default, that's inside of codemirror.css in omni.ja. A guy answering a question about this referenced the theme demo page, showing different themes on code. Said maybe you can read the source files for the demo page. I read it, but I'm not sure it's applicable when embedded in Fx.

I've searched a lot how to do it & there's not much info. Honestly, unless someone advanced enough to look at their instructions could simplify it, it's possible the fastest way is change the default theme colors in codemirror.css, then repack omni.ja. Codemirror mentions that method, but again, I think they're talking if it's freestanding or backend for some text editor, not embedded in a browser.

I'm not sure userChrome will work because it's not really part of Fx. At least I couldn't get it to work, putting the theme code in userChrome (either the normal or /chrome_debugger_profile/chrome). Though some people change some things in devtools using userChrome.css. It breaks when Mozilla changes anything.

The very few things I had tweaked in CM / dev tools UI, stopped working in Fx 74. Nothing I could do - a new profile, new userChrome file, copying a few rules - ever made it work in Fx 74. Most of what I found was people having a hard time changing devtools UI (in Fx or Chrome) w/ any consistency.
