I am experiencing random crashing of the program when changing tabs. I am also having difficulty copying a picture off of the internet and then pasting it anywhere. I am able to do so when I use Internet Explorer but I cannot do so when using Firefox. It allows me to copy but does not give me the option to paste.

Hope this helps you understand what is going on......
It doesn't matter where I seem to be posting them, it just will not let me. For instance, I use eBay quite a bit. In Internet Explorer, I usually attach my camera to my laptop and open my photos. I copy the ones I need and paste them on my desktop for uploading to eBay later. I don't download because I don't want a million images in my files. I then upload them to eBay and then delete them from my desktop. Firefox is not allowing me to do this. I am sure that it is a simple fix with a setting. But Firefox is new to me and I am not extremely computer savvy. Please let me know if there is a way to correct. I am so tired of toggling between the two programs depending on what I am needing to do. Be sure and explain step by step so that I can follow easily. Thank you
Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.
- Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
