Copy Photo but Pastes a web location instead

Using FF 84.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10 Pro (v 20H2) (OS build 19042.685) (Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0) and MS Office 2003. Until recently I've never … (read more)

Using FF 84.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10 Pro (v 20H2) (OS build 19042.685) (Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0) and MS Office 2003.

Until recently I've never had this problem but now, when I right click an image on a website and choose 'copy image' then paste it into my MS Word 2003 document, instead of the image, I see text containing the image's location.

Example: Instead of a pasted photo I get this: { INCLUDEPICTURE "https://food.fnr.sndimg.com/content/dam/images/food/fullset/2020/21/KC2613_Country-Style-Eggs-Benedict_s4x3.jpg.rend.hgtvcom.826.620.suffix/1608571541589.jpeg" \* MERGEFORMATINET }rrrttttt5f4f4rrtt54frt54ff5

Whenever I try to sign into my eBay account, I have to solve a captcha puzzle by sliding a puzzle piece into the puzzle. After I do this (and get a message from eBay stating "Verification Succeeded") I then get a pop-up box, apparently from Firefox, stating that Firefox needs to "repeat any [prior] action" to display the page, but when I click the RESEND button, it just takes me back to the puzzle, which I have to do all over again and get caught in an endless loop. I called eBay, and those idiots were totally useless in fixing this problem, and told me that Firefox is "blocking" the page.

And yes, I downloaded the most recent version of Firefox and I'm still having this problem.

How do I fix this problem?

Trying to migrate Firefox profile from Win 7 machine to new Win 10. Downloaded Firefox to new machine, confirmed that it worked, closed it.Using Troubleshooting feature, located active profile in old Win 7 machine, copied to USB stick. Closed Firefox on new machine, navigated to Profiles folder, copied the Win 7 file to it and deleted the existing file. Tried to start Firefox, got 'Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible'. Fiddled round a bit, finally uninstalled Firefox from the new machine and downloaded it again. Got the same error message, now no Firefox at all after carefully following such instructions as I could find. What the f*ck am I doing wrong? A year or so ago I transferred the Win 7 profile successfully to a Win 10 laptop. What has gone wrong now? Any suggestions most welcome.

Hi all,

We have an internal web application that uses an external application on our pc's to handle certain links.

After updating Firefox to version 8X it now continually asks to open these links. The Always allow... checkbox is not respected. Once checking the box it lasts for the period you have the browser open but as soon as you close Firefox and open again it will again prompt.

I tried renaming my handlers.json file and letting it be rebuilt to no avail.

Anyone know what he issue might be?

thanks

Suddenly, when I try to login in to my bank website, I get that I have entered the wrong password, it sends me to a second login page and I have to re-enter the password to get in. The bank says there is a problem with too many cookies being saved but didn't know how to fix it in Firefox. I never had this problem before either with the bookmark or by typing in the address. This is the only site that I have this problem.

For some reason today all of the sudden I can no longer see YouTube videos whether they are on the YouTube site, or embedded on another site. I checked another browser, and there is not issue there (Microsoft Edge). I then tried to sign up for YouTube, but the process broke down because the confirmation code was never sent to my e-mail. I also turned the AdBlock off, but that didn't help either. I checked with my ISP and there are no issues on their end. Everything else I use is not affected by this issue. So what gives?
