Sometimes when I long press and highlight text the toolbar containing the option to copy text doesn't show up at all. Right before this I was reading the coment section of a disqus story and trying to copy a link, and can't do so at all. No where in the cimmeny section is letting me copy text even if I refresh the page.

How to shut firefox up about updates

I'm running Firefox 68.9.0 ESR, and it keeps whining about an update being available. I don't care, because every time I update, one of the extensions I use every day is disabled without my permission. How do I get firefox to shut up about it once and for all? In other words, where is the "do not check for updates" command hidden, or, how else can I shut this thing up? I have, in the past, liked firefox, but it has, over the last few years, supported less and less of features I use daily, at a minimum, many times/day for most.

So how do I shut these annoying alerts about an update I have NO intention of installing off? "You can't" is not a valid answer. Nor is "just upgrade and lose half of the stuff (again) that you use all the time." Sorry if I sound angry, but these constant annoyances (and Thunderbird is doing the same---so same question for it here) are really getting on my nerves.

I have Firefox almost working the way it should. Still can't click in a bookmark toolbar bookmark and then click on "add bookmark here" like I could. That was one of those I used about 10--30 times per day, depending on what I was working on.

Thanks.

I have Firefox 68.9.0ers (64bit) on antiXLinux-19. My microphone seems to work. It's not muted. I can record my voice with cheese or recordmydesktop.

However, when I go to https://meet.jit.si/ or https://www.onlinemictest.com/ I get the error that the microphone cannot be found. That means I do not even get the prompt to allow to use my microphone. In other words, MediaDevice.getUserMedia() throws NotFoundError.

With https://meet.jit.si/ I do get prompt for video, and video is working just fine.

I have the same problem with Firefox 76.0.1 (64bit).

Firefox on my Chromebook does not recognize the full screen. This is true even when I check the "Request desktop site", and the URL shows that it is using it. It often leaves some of the display off-screen. Some pages in Facebook say "Expand your browser window to see this story" when the window is expanded to full already. Even the Firefox help website itself does not display the full screen. The Chrome browser, for all practical purposes, is using the desktop version of the browser. Is there a Firefox setting or version that I can use to accomodate this?
