Firefox will not copy/paste within itself from pull-down menu. Will not accept/paste material copied from Mac email, from Word, from Safari. Without copy/paste, the browser is USELESS.

I have a Canon MG6250 connected via USB. I run Windows 7 with all latest updates and currently the Firefox version is 38.0.5. For quite some time, probably about a year, starting after a new version of Firefox I think , I have trouble printing. (Sorry I can't remember with which version it started happening.) Unless I wait for the printer to ready itself completely, although the print dialogue box appears and I click Print, often (not always) nothing happens. If I try to print again I get a pop-up box saying the print function is not available. If I then close Firefox and try to restart it, it tells me that Firefox is already running; I have to end its process via Task Manager. Often I want to print from several tabs, already loaded with the pages to be printed. Even if I manage to get the first tab to print, somewhere along the line the same thing often happens: before I've printed the last tab's page I get the pop-up box again and I have to end the Firefox process to make it work again. I can usually prevent it from happening if I monitor my computer's CPU activity (via System Mechanic) and make sure all activity has stopped after printing one tab before I try to print the next; this makes printing from Firefox frustratingly slow!

I do not have any printing problems whatsoever from any other application.

Note that fairly recently, due to a system drive failure, I re-installed Windows and all my software. I hoped that a by-product of doing this might fix the Firefox printing problem, but it hasn't.

I'd be most grateful for a solution to this problem.

I used to be able to open multiple tabs within the same Firefox window. Now, every time I click a link or access an external hyper link, a whole new window opens instead of a new tab in the existing window.

browser.link.open_newwindow is set to integer type and value of 3.

This doesn't seem to matter. The problem persists. I don't want to do a refresh or uninstall and reinstall a fresh copy. What can I do to fix this? Like I said, it was never this way before and it seems to have started happening out of nowhere.

When in Firefox, if I attempt to print a page (either through typing Command-P or via the File menu), it crashes immediately (even before bringing up the popup to select printing options). It does this for all pages (ie. page content does not seem to matter). Also, if I go to the same URL in another browser such as Chrome, the page can be printed without incident.

Here is the most recent crash ID and report: bp-365ce20b-9536-4107-9937-5b3f52150611 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/365ce20b-9536-4107-9937-5b3f52150611

I know about Tools>page info>permissions but that is only url by url.

I found something that worked in here before, but it seems to have reset when firefox restarted. And i can't find the method this time around!

When I open a new tab, it is totally blank. Recently I was exploring all the Firefox features & realized that a new tab should be showing sights I visit often. if I close all my tabs, I do get a page a with my favorite tabs. Should I not be getting this page when I open a new tab? I've checked my about:config and browser.newtab.url is set to about:newtab.

What can I do to get this page to load when open a new tab?

The control buttons on the top left of my browser keep disappearing!!!! They leave me with no other way that I know of to close or minimize the page but to quit firefox. That is not the problem unless I just want to look at other work on my screen but not quit firefox altogether but just toggle it up and down when needed. I am extremely frustrated by this!!!! This is not in any way convenient for using the internet and my other applications which do not require a browser to be opened.

I have a page that is loaded through apps.facebook.com

There are two paths that this page can be accessed from: apps.facebook.com/ProductionPage apps.facebook.com/DevelopmentPage (Not the actual urls, just used as an example)

I was using document.referrer to determine if the page was loaded through the Development path and if so load some debuging code. Now firefox was updated so document.referrer only returns the domain without the path. Is there any way or workarounds to get that path from the document.referrer?

Thanks, Armand Choy

Why do I find Firefox forzen and a rectangular white box on the screen of my MacPro after the computer goes into into screen saver mode and I come back to type again? I have to Force-Quit Firefox and restart my tabs from scratch.

It got so annoying that I switched to Chrome for a while, but Chrome is a power grabber that would not let me upload to Amazon the cover images for print books I write. I want to switch back to Firefox, but the only way to keep it from dying on me is to keep the screen saver and the eco-saver sleep modes completely off. This only started happening after I installed the new Yosemite OS, so maybe there's an incompatibility of some sort.

Here is a screen shot of how the white box looks on the frozen Firefox screen. Well, hmm. Looks like this image won't upload either! Oh well!

Anybody know what's wrong or how to fix it?

I noticed a few days ago that the fullscreen function no longer works for embedded YouTube videos in Mozilla. Then tonight it occurred too me to check and see if t works when you watch a video at YouTube.com. I tried several videos at random and none of them had the fullscreen function. The fullscreen button (box) is there, but when I click on it nothing happens.

I also tested videos at Hulu.com, DailyMotion.com, the Internet Archive and Veoh.com, and the fullscreen function is fine on all of those sites - it is only YouTube that seems to have a problem. I also tested the same videos in the Internet Explorer browser and they work there for all of the sites mentioned, including YouTube.com.

I hope this can be repaired, I really like the Mozilla browser and would hate to have to switch to something else.

I'm using Firefox version 38.0.5, Windows 7 Since updating the Ctrl + C shortcut doesn't work in the Firefox main window. (I can't copy text from any website using Ctrl + C).

Right click and using copy from the menu works perfectly. Ctrl V, and Ctrl X work fine no problem.

Ctrl C works fine when copying text from the address bar and search bar, I just can't copy anything from anything in the main window of firefox.

I've tried running Firefox in safe mode, I've also reset firefox and run a virus scan, but nothing has fixed the problem.

If anyone had any suggestions, that'd be great. Thanks
