AS USUAL THE LATEST FIREFOX UPDATE BROUGHT ON SEVERAL NEW PROBLEMS. I'M HAVING ISSUES WITH HIGHLIGHTING, CUTTING/COPYING TEXT AND ALSO TYPING IN COMMENTS ON SITES LIKE YOUTUBE THE TEXT BOX GOES WEIRD, AND THE USUAL "TYPE COMMENT HERE" MESSAGES WON'T GO AWAY, BUT WHATEVER I'M TYPING WILL BE TYPED OVER THE ALREADY EXISTING TEXT IN THE COMMENT BOX.
