Applications that run inside the browser, e.g. on-line version of Excel, use the same finger swipe controls as the browser itself. This creates problems, the most annoying of which is trying to move around in an on-line Excel spreadsheet and the browser thinks you want to go back an entire web-page. If you don't perform the swipe exactly right all of a sudden not only did you lose your work and train of thought, you need to log back into the on-line document etc etc.

How can you set Firefox so that it only uses the arrow buttons to go back a page?

With very vague help from your Support answers, I figured this out on my own and had to comment because all too many times your experts forget they are not always dealing with techs on answering these questions. For me this is what worked when I tried to alphabetize my bookmarks: Open LIbrary, show all Bookmarks (bottom of the list of bookmarks), click on Views and select Sort.

Warum erhalte ich bei Updates "BETA-Versionen", ohne dass ich diesen "Service" gewählt habe? Was ist mein "Vorteil"? Ich denke, dass Beta-Versionen per se nicht ausgereift und daher lückenhaft bzw. noch fehlerbehaftet sind. Wie kann ich diesen Status wieder loswerden?

Every time Firefox updates the user interface gets corrupted and I get half of it in English and the other half in Italian. See the attached image for an example of the problem.

This problems seems to be similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274346 except that when I try to update the add-ons I always get the message that they're already up to date.

Due to the frequency Firefox gets updated resetting it every time this happens as suggested in the previous answer is not an acceptable solution.

When I launch Firefox (Firefox 75.0 (20200403170909 version)) I keep getting "lebowskilebowski" displayed on the upper right of screen for one second then it disappears as I try to log onto my banking website? Since this displays just before I long onto my banking site it is of importance that this nuisance (virus/maleware) be removed. All internet reports including Webroot state its a "Firefox" issue? Firefox....Your immediate and kind assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your great support. Have a great day, James

Using firefox-esr 68.7.0 on Raspberry PI4, Linux 10 (buster). Firefox handles the online .shtml webpages properly at: http://www.buczynski.com. All webpage files were downloaded to RPi using FileZilla. Used File=>Open File to open the local index.shtml file. This results in repeated new tabs opening. Using upper right X to close firefox results in the application relaunching and attempting recovery repeating the same problem. RPi reboot is the only way to recover from the problem.

There are a number of other .shtml files and they all experience the same behavior when opened locally. If a .shtml file is copied to have a .html extension, the locally opened file displays properly.

Problem does not occur on Windows 7 box, Firefox 75.0 (64 bit) when the index.shtml file is opened locally.

When typing in a text box, if I move the cursor to the beginning or middle of my text and then delete/type, sometimes text will be overwritten somewhere else

I've had this problem for weeks now. At first I thought it was just on Twitter, but recently I noticed it on another website.

When I'm typing in a text box on a web page, if I just type left-to-right and don't move the cursor back or use backspace or anything, it's fine. But if I click back to the beginning/middle of the text to edit it, sometimes my edits will show up somewhere else (not under the cursor), overwriting some other part of my text.

Also, when this happens, I'll often try to select all of the text, copy it, and paste it to another program so I can edit it there, refresh the page, and copy-paste my edited text into the refreshed page, but the first copy-paste never works. When I paste after trying to copy the mangled text, I just get whatever I had copied to the clipboard before that.

Please help, this bug is so disruptive!!

If you're in Full Screen and move the mouse cursor anywhere near the top of the screen the Address Bar pops down. Is there any way of stopping this? Its absolutely the most infernal, poorly thought out "feature" in this browser. It makes Full Screen a total irritation. The only time I want to see that Address Bar is when I use Control+D to go somewhere. Surely this activation can be stopped.

I can neither find the menue bar option in View/Toolbar, nor in View/Toolbar Customize. The instructions to restore the Menu bar to its rightful place at the top, and to have it always that way, does not resolve this issue. Also, I like to work with Firefox maximized.

So... why is this SO difficult to achieve? Please, please help.
