Have To Click Bookmark Twice Before Firefox Opens Page

I notice that since upgrading to version 79.0, I have to click a bookmark twice before Firefox will start navigating to the page.

This occurs for bookmarks, homepage Top Site shortcuts, or even if I type a URL into the address bar and press enter.

The first time I click or press enter, Firefox does nothing. I either have to click again or press enter again. After the second time, Firefox navigates to the page.

It's almost as if the first click is being ignored.

This seems to only occur after the browser is first opened. I can repeat the behavior by closing the browser and then re-opening it.

This was not a problem with the previous version. Only since 79.0.

Since the new update was released I have been unable to figure out how to have the 'Open with Firefox' option for PDFs display the URL for the website and not my computer's program files.

I link a number of PDFs for my work and currently need to switch to Chrome to obtain the correct link, which is unnecessary and time consuming, prompt help would be greatly appreciated!

It's working fine with other browsers. I just updated today to 79.0 (64 bit). In the same network other people is working fine with same version.

Any help? Rober

In recent months Firefox has updated several times on my laptop. The first time (6 months or so ago) I lost all my bookmarks and now can't bookmark anything. Annoying, but I just have to search for things. The most recent update (this past week) has disabled my search engine. I can't use my search bar at all at the top. When I try to designate what search engine I want, it won't allow anything. Again, I have to type in a search engine address directly, then use that search engine when I get on the page.

I also can't right click on a link and open another tab or page.

At this rate, I'm ready to simply delete Firefox and find a different browser to use.

I understand wanting to update Firefox with new bells and whistles...but it really needs to work across all platforms.

Help me out here....Jeff Pile

windows 10 64bit, latest firefox install. i see an issue with my keyboard typing the wrong characters in firefox, it seems to randomly replace the character i press on the keyboard with a different one. I can be typing something into a webpage, either ebay or facebook, or even an address on any ecomerce site, and i get ridiculous spelling issues. E.g i type "firefox issue" into this page, and i get "firefix issue" if i goto the the "O" btton on the keyboard, and hold it down, i get "iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiooiiiiiiii" or some other random pattern. I don't have any emoji extensions installed, and have zone alarm installed, and its up to date too. Any ideas??

Unable to log in to my account on https://online.congressionalfcu.org/Banking/SignIn.aspx. Each time I try to login, the website takes me back to the login page. Have spoken with bank reps and tech support, cleared cache and cookies, re-booted, etc. Tried accessing the website using Chrome and had no problem. Using Standard Tracking Protection (can't seem to add an exception). TIA for advice.

This is a new problem as of yesterday. I've been using FF successfully to log in to this website for months.

Recently did the automatic upgrade of FireFox for Windows on one of my computers that was not logged in (sync) with FireFox. Upon completion all of my bookmarks and history were gone. An upgrade should not have done that.

Thought someone would want to know.
