Something I do at work fairly regularly is copy and paste an entire page from Chrome to MS Word, by selecting all with Ctrl+A and then pasting. When doing this in chrome, the page text, text colors, and background formatting and colors are copied. When I do the same thing in Firefox, only the plain text is copied. Is there a way to make Firefox mimic this behavior? The two screenshots I have attached demonstrate what I mean. If needed, I can provide more info, or additional screenshots!!!

Thanks in advance!

We have Firefox in an enterprise environment. We have Firefox configured to read from the Root Store in IE. There is one internal site that apparently Firefox cannot, or does not, receive SSL certificate information. When trying to load the site, we receive a Secure Connection Failed error message. There is no option to manually enter an exception. When clicking the information icon next to the URL, there is no certificate information displayed. Internet Explorer is able to open the website without issue. There is no error message anywhere. Is there anywhere I can look to see what is going on? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hello Everyone,

I'd like to deploy Firefox ESR 60.6.1 in my company (4000 computers) with PowerShell / SCMM package, but i'm having trouble to set a default software for .ica (citrix) extension . I'd like to auto check automaticaly the box (Remember my choice for "xxx", please see the screenshot, sorry for french btw) in order to make it easier for the users.

I know this parameter is written in handlers.json, but I was wondering if it can be set in the mozilla.cfg.

Thank you very much for your help.

Как решить эту проблему ?

" В вашем браузере отключено локальное хранилище Indexed DB Для полноценной работы Mate Translate необходимо, чтобы в вашем браузере было включено локальное хранилище Indexed DB (база данных, в которой сохраняются все ваши переводы и разговорники).

Скорее всего, ваш браузер сейчас работает в режиме Приватного просмотра, во время которого Indexed DB не работает (это известная ошибка #781982 Firefox).

Вы можете попробовать в настройках истории браузера about:preferences#privacy отметить опцию "Firefox будет запоминать историю". Однако это не гарантирует того, что Indexed DB заработает. Или же вы можете связаться с Mozilla и попросить их как можно скорее исправить эту ошибку.

Мы очень сожалеем о предоставляемых вам неудобствах, однако мы ничего не можем с этим поделать. "

Where can I download Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR 52) for Windows in order to continue using the Session Manager extension? It's extremely important and vital that I am able to restore my historical sessions and also save multiple sessions going forward.

When I try to download it, I can see it will be 60 version instead.

Unfortunately I mistakenly updated my ESR 52 version today without realizing I'd lose that extension. This is very frustrating, so to alleviate the issue, I'd just like to have the older version and stick with it. Thank you.

Just noticed this today, and it seems to be only happening on the Facebook home page. I'll be trying to send a message to someone in the mini messenger pop-up on the bottom, and everything just goes SUPER SLOW. I'll type out a whole paragraph and the message is still being typed out letter by letter by the time I'm already finished typing. I can't switch tabs while this is happening, otherwise the whole message disappears and the page reloads. I also checked Task Manager (Windows 10 64-bit) and the Firefox process has 6 processes running, all at 10% CPU usage, and over 2GB of memory dedicated to it. Once I change tabs away from FB, the CPU usage drops dramatically to less than 5% total

With all the news about websites setting up invisible boxes to harvest logins & passwords, I only want to be signed in to my master when I want to sync my tabs or enter a password for a specific site; and then I want to be signed out again, without having to quit FF.

Is this possible? And if not, it SHOULD BE!

I've been using Firefox Quantum for over a month now on Ubuntu 18.04. However, the extensions Grammarly and LastPass which I need the most do not work as expected. LastPass does not automatically sign in nor does the overlay interface work. I have to right-click on the extension button everytime and launch lastpass in a separate window to Sign in. Nor do I get a prompt to save the password when I create a user account on a website.

Next, Grammarly fails to work - and when it works, Firefox notifies that this extension is causing slowdowns, why?

I use a lot of links in my Word documents and never had a problem opening any until the last update of Firefox. Now when I put a link into any Word document, and click on it to check the link is correct, I get: "Unable to open https:// xxxxx.com. Cannont locate Internet or proxy server." This is killing me. How do I fix it. I have been using links as promotion for 3 decades. Now none work.

Hello, Not sure what is wrong with firefox lately but since 60 release it is not the old good fox. Page loading is stalling, when I go to check my speed with firefox I;m getting high latency: Download speed 94.26 Mbps Upload speed 5.40 Mbps Ping 179 ms

Results from chrome:

Download speed 97.55 Mbps Upload speed 5.48 Mbps Ping 10 ms

I repeated this a few times and every time same results.

Not sure why firefox is stalling on page loading, and why is it giving high ping on speedtest servers. I can not measure speeed on speedtest.net. it is giving all kinds of errors even in safe mode, and when I manage to load it it gives very high ping, but everything is working fine in chrome and edge. I can not use another browser because I;m using firefox for years, switched after mozzila (R.I.P.) SO can you please fix this? I;m open to any suggestions.

Firefox Quantum doe NOT work properly ans so I am looking for an alternative. I heard that Vivaldi had lots of add-ons like FF had before. Is that true?

I will carry on using Firefox ESR 52.9 till I can find an alternative. BUT for the time being FF has updated itself to the ESR 60.2 so beforehand I am looking for a way to download FF ESR 52.9. How can have it??? Because here www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/organizations/all/ it does not show anymore.

Thanks for your help.

Firefox crashed. After I restarted it, I noticed all my cookies, bookmarks and history were gone. When I tried to restore my bookmarks from backup, however, it says "unable to process the backup file". It does this with any backup I click. Can I resolve this in any way at all? I had a lot of important stuff in my backups.

I am really getting fed up with this browser, it is constantly more work than it is worth. The damn thing keeps giving me error messages in individual tabs that are silly and insulting (at the same time), telling me it is sorry but it had to close the damn tab because of some stupid problem it can not even identify. Screws up everything one is doing at the time and happens MUCH to often to be a serious browser. Also, several times a day, that damn thing closes completely dumping everything that is open, including downloads, and destroys hours if not days of work that just go out the windows, who the hell thought this one up. In addition, many serious website will not support it function making me have to use IE or Chrome to do some things that are so simple it is beyond explanation why someone, anyone, who is trying to push the use of a serious browser would allow such problem to persist past the first one, let alone months of the same problems. This browser sucks and is nothing to be used seriously, what so ever.
