I just added the "Word Count" add-on. I am supposed to be able to select text on any site, right click and a notification will let me know the word count of the text.

Here is my problem: When I select text and right click, I see "Word Count" it as an option, but I don't get a notification when I click on it.

So far I have:

-disabled and enabled the add-on. -gone to the notification settings. I only see an option to add a website--no option to make an exception for an add-on. -restarted firefox and am using the latest version.

Also: I don't have any other add-ons.

Can you help me? Thanks!

Very recently, despite having no previous issues, Startpage no longer functions when using the built in search bar on the Android app. I followed their instructions previously to change the default search engine on the app using the custom option. Now it appears neither the generic or Firefox specific (https://www.startpage.com/do/dsearch?query=%s) search string is working - both give me an "Address Not Found " error. Furthermore, when re-adding the search engine, the same error is shown in the custom options page, indicating it cannot connect. I've aslo contacted their support but thought I'd ask here too.

I tried to register at link text and when I entered my email addy it told me that email address is already in use. I tried my secondary email addy and was told same thing. I don't remember username and for that matter, don't remember a previous registration. So how can I contact admin at site or who do I contact to resolve issue or what do I so now?

Thanks Cor-el for replying with advice on how to use about:config to ensure the screencapture was toggled correctly. It wasn't and I corrected that. Now I have the icon in the toolbar and on the right click menu but when I attempt to use them all I get is a popup menu with a large black X in it and nothing can be done with it. Also, on the toolbar items that are added to it all appear in the overflow and there is no way of getting them to appear on the screen by reducing the size of the search bar. I've been using firefox ever since it first appeared and I've never had problems like this before.

Video Not Playing Until Firefox Is Restarted Once

Okay, PopOS 21.04, Firefox 92.0 x64, my packages are up to date, my graphics card (Nvidia 1080) drivers are up to date (nvidia-driver-470 (proprietary)), kernal 5.13.0-76… (read more)

Okay, PopOS 21.04, Firefox 92.0 x64, my packages are up to date, my graphics card (Nvidia 1080) drivers are up to date (nvidia-driver-470 (proprietary)), kernal 5.13.0-7614-generic.

I run a variety of addons, but the only ones that should even be touching YouTube in any way would be Noscript, Ublock Origin, YouTube HD, HTTPS Everywhere. In the past with my current configuration none of these have given me any issues with playback.

I don't have any idea why, this is a problem I experienced a long time ago and now newly the other day for seemingly no good reason, videos on YouTube but also the web in general will not play until I open Firefox, close the browser, open it again, and then try and do whatever it was I'm trying to do. While not a fatal issue, this is one that is extremely annoying and I really don't feel like putting up with it.

Anyone have any advice or information?
