Hi

Please can you hold off on using the Caps Lock key, some people may see it as shouting.

Please can you give us more details of what you are trying to do and what is happening. It is very unclear from your question what is causing this issue.

You may also want to consider updating Firefox. I recommend that you check for updates in Ubuntu Software.
